Reason For Gillingham vs Shrewsbury Predictions

4 of the last 6 meetings between these two clubs have ended in draws.

Gillingham have drawn 4 of their last 6 matches.

Shrewsbury have drawn 4 of their last 6 matches.

Both teams have scored in 6 of the last 7 encounters between these two clubs.

Both teams have been drawing a lot of games of late

Gillingham played out a 2-2 draw away at Rochdale on Saturday while Shrewsbury were in action against Liverpool in the FA Cup, earning a replay at Anfield courtesy of a 2-2 draw in their own backyard. Both teams have been involved in a number of stalemates of late, both drawing four of their last six matches in all competitions, and four of their last six encounters against one another have also ended level, so you can see why we have backed a draw between the pair on Wednesday night.

The hosts have played out three draws at home so far this season while their guests have earned six draws on the road, with the hosts averaging 1.71 points per home game and Shrewsbury averaging 1.15 points per away game, both of which are above the league average (1.66 per home game and 1.04 per away game). Gillingham score an average of 1.57 goals per home game and concede an average of 1.00 goals while Shrewsbury score an average of 0.69 goals per away game and concede an average of 1.00 goals, so you can see why we have backed a final scoreline of 1-1 on Wednesday.

Only 23% of Shrewsbury’s away games and 50% of Gillingham’s home matches have produced over 2.5 goals so far this season, which is why we have backed a 1-1 draw between the pair. Both teams have scored in half of Gillingham’s home games in League One but Shrewsbury have only netted 9 goals on the road so far this season, which is why we have gone with a low-scoring final score for Wednesday nights’ clash.

The vast majority of the recent meetings between the pair have ended in stalemates

Over 1.5 goals have been produced in 71% of Gillingham’s home games as well as in 46% of Shrewsbury’s away games, adding further weight to our prediction for a final score of one goal apiece. The hosts have only kept clean sheets in 36% of their home games and the same can be said for 38% of Shrewsbury’s away games this season, which suggests we are likely to see both teams get on the scoreboard this Wednesday.

21% of Gillingham’s home games and 23% of Shrewsbury’s away games have seen exactly 2-goals scored, with the hosts drawing 21% of their home games and the visitors drawing 46% of their matches on the road. The recent form of both teams and their results against one another over the last few years point towards a stalemate being the most likely outcome on Wednesday night.

We’re confident that Wednesday’s match will end in a draw and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1 between the pair. Gillingham and Shrewsbury have both drawn a lot of games of late, both domestically over the last few weeks as well as against each other over the last 2-years, and we have predicted another tight, tense, and competitive ninety minutes between the two clubs on Wednesday night.
