CHESTERFIELD - SHREWSBURY TOWN
These are two of the better sides in Division 2, Town were made pre season favourites, after big summer investment in playing staff and at times, have looked far too good for this division. However, most of their better performances have come at home and they are still capable of throwing in the odd stinker, like at Blyth on Saturday, where they endured an embarassing 3-1 defeat, falling behind early and never getting back into the game. Doubtless, they will be fired up to prove that was just a minor blip in their season and we are almost certain to see a far more committed performance and probably one with a few goals, Town are , after all, the division's top scorers and their last ten starts have averaged 3.3 goals per game.
Chesterfield have finally found some form after a dismal run and are unbeaten in four, winning three and scoring an incredible 15 goals, including six at Exeter, who had previously only conceded 5 in 7 home starts. Their last ten matches have produced an average of 3.6 goals and it is very hard to see these two prolific teams, not being involved in another shoot out.
