Rotherham v Shrewsbury: Well-matched game could go the distance

| 27.05.2018

Sunday sees Rotherham United and Shrewsbury Town face off at Wembley in the League One play-off final.

There’s been little between the pair in recent meetings. The Shrews have won three of the last seven head-to-heads, with two draws and a couple of victories for the Millers.

It’s 13/10 for a Rotherham win in 90 minutes, with Shrewsbury outsiders at 11/5 and 21/10 for honours-even.

Two of the last six League One finals have gone the distance, and it’s 9/2 for either team to win on Penalties again.

The Yorkshire outfit have found the net in six games on the trot, while it’s five from six for Shrewsbury. Add the fact that the Millers have the worst defensive record of  this season’s top-six, and goals look likely.

There’s 10/11 on Both Teams to Score, while Over 2.5 Goals is a shade longer at 6/5.

Rotherham have Will Vaulks in good form. The midfielder has found the net in three of his last six meetings – closing out the scoring each time.

The Millers man is 10/3 to Score Anytime at Wembley, while he’s 9/1 to be Last Goalscorer.

Last time Shrewsbury won this fixture – in November 2017 – the opening goal came via Jon Nolan. The 26-year-old is 13/5 to register on the big stage.

As regards long shots, Paul Warne’s men led and lost in their recent meeting with Plymouth Argyle. The Shrews also came from behind to win at Peterborough five games back. It’s as long as 16/1 for Shrewsbury to Win from Behind here.
