Cambridge vs Shrewsbury betting tips: League One preview, prediction and odds

Match preview

Cambridge United will welcome Shrewsbury Town to the Abbey Stadium this Boxing Day with the home looking to steer further away from the relegation zone with them down in 20th as Shrewsbury remain in the top half of the table.

Ahead of the game, Cambridge are sitting two places above the bottom three but have a gap of only three points to work with. At the same time, with their inferior goals difference over MK Dons down in 22nd, there is a chance that Cambridge could be in the drop zone at the end of this game with a loss.

Worse yet for Mark Bonner’s men, they lost to Forest Green directly below them just three weeks ago to close this gap even further. His side did redeem themselves slightly by taking a point from the league leaders, Plymouth Arygle.

Shrewsbury are into 11th after a 3-2 win over Bolton Wanderers and a 2-0 win over Lincoln City in December. At the same time, they also beat Peterborough United 3-1 in the FA Cup at the end of November. The club now sit inside the top half of the table by two points and with eight wins on the board now, they are sitting with a -1 goals difference too.

Shrewsbury form looks too good right now, but Cambridge have looked solid in defence recently after a goalless draw with the league leaders.
