With the League One table reaching the business end of the season, English football’s third tier remains incredibly tight at both ends of the table with just a single point seeing a team jump several places. On that note, new league leaders Shrewsbury will travel to Rochdale who are enduring their own battle at the other end of the table.
For the hosts on Friday, after an impressive ninth-place finish last season Rochdale have been unable to replicate their form and now find themselves in a battle to secure their League One status. After 36 games this season, Rochdale have won just seven, drawing 14 and losing 15, no team in League One has scored fewer goals than Rochdale. Now sat 23rd in the table, while they may hold a five-point advantage over Bury, Rochdale are now five points adrift of safety. While they have recently begun to show signs of life, The Dale have drawn three of their last four.
As for the visitors, after flirting with the relegation zone for most of last season, Shrewsbury have enjoyed an incredible run and now find themselves as the new League One leaders. After 38 League One games this season, Shrewsbury have won 23, drawn nine and lost six, scoring 51 and conceding just 28, the Shrews boast the second best defensive record in the league. With a points tally of 78, Shrewsbury now sit a single point above Wigan and just two above Blackburn, who hold a game in hand. As for their recent results, Shrewsbury are now unbeaten in their last seven appearances, winning five of those, even more impressive is that the Shrews have kept five clean sheets in their last seven.
