HUGH Wilson (@Hugh_Wilson) takes a look at League Two this week with attention turning towards the clash at Victoria Park between Hartlepool and Shrewsbury.
Hartlepool v Shrewsbury | 6th September 2014 | Shrewsbury To Score Over 1.5 Goals (6/4 Coral)
Big-spending Shrewsbury are looking good early on this season under new boss Micky Mellon after bringing in some great players. They’ve won three and drawn two of their opening five league games, netting 11 goals in the process. Their away form has been impressive and they’ve even knocked Leicester out of the League Cup!
They’ve scored two or more goals in four of their five League Two fixtures this season and their attack is looking really dangerous, especially Scott Vurnon. Vurnon was one of four players rested in their midweek Johnstone’s Paint Trophy loss at Preston but you can expect the big-names to return for this.
Hartlepool aren’t enjoying such a good time having lost four of their opening five under Colin Cooper and have just sold young star man Luke James. The Monkey Hangers have lost both home fixtures this season by the same scoreline (0-2). So I’m siding with Shrewsbury to score Over 1.5 Goals at a brilliant price with Coral.
