Until the end of December, it looks like that Sunderland will be fighting for the top two places and the automatic promotion to the Championship. But, in January and February, their results were terrible, and they slipped to the 7th place on the table. Even outside the playoff zone. They sacked the manager and appointed Alex Neil, who has experience of working at Championship.
His start was also bad, but he found a winning formula, and the good thing is that some injured players are coming back. Sunderland is now eight games without a defeat in League One, and they have five clean sheets in that run. They are in the best form in the last five games, and in the last two months, only three teams have won more points.
Five games before the season end, Sunderland has three games at home, where they are very good this season. At the Stadium of Lights, they won 44 points, and only Sheffield Wed and Plymouth have a better home record with one game more played.

This season is much better for Shrewsbury. They finished last season in 17th place, and now they are in 16th place in the table. But, the difference is that last season, Shrewsbury was in the relegation fight for the major part of the season, and now they spent almost the entire season in the second part of the table, closer to the mid-table.
Four games before the season end, Shrewsbury is 11 points above the relegation zone, and they are almost 99% safe. If the teams from the relegation zone fail to win this weekend (one of them), Shrewsbury is safe.
Shrewsbury is in a run of two games without a win and has four wins in the last 17 games. They improved results during January and February, and they stayed distanced from the relegation zone with that points.
Shrewsbury isn’t that good team when they play away from home. They only won three games this season and failed to score in more than half matches – 11 of 21. They have won only once away against the team that was in the top 12 on the table.
Shrewsbury has four games left, and in the next two rounds, they will play against Doncaster and Charlton, so that will be their chance to improve point tail.

They have met each other six times in the last four years. Both teams won two games each, and the other two were finished with a draw. Five games were finished with under 2.5 goals.
Sunderland is still without Aiden McGeady, who is injured. David Davis is out for Shrewsbury.
Sunderland vs. Shrewsbury Town Prediction
Sunderland must win this game. Simple as that. They are in 6th place on the table, but Oxford, who is 8th, is only four points away. Sunderland has a game in hand compared to Oxford, and they must take their chances in games like this.
They are big favorites; the Stadium of Light will be once again full so that the atmosphere will be fantastic. On the other hand, Shrewsbury has nothing to play for.
We will go for Sunderland’s win, the odds are very good, and we will not miss this chance.
