((LIVE TV<)) Forest Green vs Shrewsbury live watch 5 September 2023
Shrewsbury almost went ahead in the 34th minute through a shot from Christian Saydee which dipped over the crossbar before a dangerous cross fizzed past the face of goal. The hosts grew into the game as the first half came to a close and were denied by two smart stops from Carl Rushworth as Tom Flanagan’s angled shot from the right was soon followed by Matt Pennington’s towering header from Tom Bayliss’ corner. Steve Cotterill’s side were awarded a penalty in the 44th minute as Jamie Robson was seen to have handled the ball in the box. Shrewsbury captain Luke Leahy stepped up and stroked it just past Rushworth into the bottom left corner to put his side in front before the interval.
Forest Green vs Shrewsbury Prediction & Betting Tips (5 September)Winning away games was something that Shrewsbury did regularly towards the back end of last season, with the eventual runners-up securing five victories in their final eight trips. Forest Green, by way of contrast, ran into plenty of difficulties on their own patch, suffering four defeats in seven top-flight fixtures, so they have little reason for optimism ahead of this clash. Forest Green are rarely involved in top-flight thrillers, with nine of their previous ten matches, including seven in a row of late, serving up no more than a couple of successful strikes.
Oxford United vs Shrewsbury Town on 04 Feb 23 - Match CentreA contrast in form was cruelly underlined at the Kassam Stadium today when Oxford United were beaten for the fourth time in a row while visitors Shrewsbury made it five consecutive wins to continue their climb in League 1. A second half goal from sub Ryan Bowman was enough to give the Shrews all three points despite the U's dominating much of the 90 minutes. Two early efforts from Billy Bodin and a well-struck free kick from left-back Brandon Fleming got United off to a good start as they dominated the first half. There were loud shouts for a penalty for handball when Marcus McGuane’s drive after 16 minutes was pushed away by keeper Mark Marosi and Ciaron Brown’s goalbound effort was blocked by Flanagan as he leaned into the ball, but that appeal was swiftly waved away by ref Scott Oldham.
And yet, of course, there is one stat that matters more than any other. There was a warning on 70 minutes when Tom Bloxham let fly and Eastwood clawed the ball onto the post, but still United looked the more likely team to score, Marosi getting down smartly to smother another effort from Joseph. And then everything went wrong. Shrewsbury battled to win the ball back on the edge of United's box, a clever scooped ball over the back line from Killian Phillips left Bowman in behind the backline and his touch took the ball beyond the fingertips of the despairing Eastwood. United threw men forward and did all they could to retrieve the situation, but Bowman's goal had burst their bubble and an improved performance brought zero reward.
Given that this has also been the case in five consecutive Shrewsbury away games at this level, anyone expecting fireworks at Forest Green stadium is set to be disappointed. Both teams have found the net in just two of the most recent 10 top-flight fixtures involving Forest Green, so it is quite rare for this to happen when they take to the field. It has been a virtually identical story as far as Shrewsbury are concerned, as 10 of their previous 12 matches at this level have seen at least one of the two keepers emerge with a clean sheet.
House was involved again in the 20th minute when he won City a free-kick in central position 30-yards out. Vernam took responsibility for the set-piece and sent a driven strike over the wall to force Marosi into a diving save. Virtue combined nicely with Vernam in the 26th minute in a flowing move forward which saw the latter’s effort at goal deflected kindly into the gloves of the keeper, as the Imps continued their search for the opener. Mark Kennedy’s side continued to create openings in the first half with the next one coming from some neat build up play involving Jack Diamond and House to allow Virtue to fire one at goal, which failed to test the stopper.
At the other end Flanagan let fly from distance in the opening minutes but otherwise the Shrews were very much on the back foot throughout the first 45 and had another let off after 22 minutes when Bodin freed Kyle Joseph only for his low strike to hit the right-hand post. And yet, when your luck's out things go against you. First Bodin, having looked the most likely source of a goal, limped off before half time with a hamstring problem. Replacement Tyler Smith kept the momentum going with an early strike after the break that Marosi clung on to, bettering that by tipping a McGuane drive over the bar a minute later, and at the hour mark the stats showed 61 per cent possession for the home side and 12 shots at goal to Shrewsbury's two.
Forest Green have proven incredibly consistent when it comes to their involvement in the EFL Trophy fixtures containing under 2. 5 goals, with 15 of their last 17 contests subscribing to this particular scoring model. This has also been the case in 17 of the previous 20 Shrewsbury away games at this level, so a repeat performance is expected. Goals Scored Who will score more?

Salop started the second period brightly and called Rushworth into action in the 53rd minute after Bayliss was allowed space to drive at goal before rifling his shot straight into the goalie’s grasp. Paudie O’Connor looked to be a threat from a City corner in the 58th minute as Vernam floated a corner into the centre, but the defender could only send his header over the crossbar. Shrewsbury doubled their lead on the hour mark when Shipley played an inviting ball to Bayliss from the left who got in front of Jamie Robson at the back post to tap into the back of the net.
