Football Fixtures in December for Shrewsbury Town
After a spell of good luck, Shrewsbury Town has only lost two games since October which means that they are well on the way up the table, at the time of writing seven points clear of the relegation zone at 17th position. That seems like a blessing considering the start they had.
The next three games in December are going to be tough. Two of which are against mid-table Coventry on Saturday 22nd December 2018 and then against Stanley on Boxing Day. It’s been nearly eight years since the last time Shrewsbury were beaten by Stanley, who are looking pretty fierce, so let’s hope there’s no crying over spilt milk.
Over the Christmas period Shrewsbury also face Sunderland away, and considering the might of the mackums, we’ll probably be drinking away our woes over NYE.
It seems like the battle for the number one position is in the hands of Liverpool once more, but that’s with a one-point lead against Man City.
The next few games look great though. Wolves play Liverpool today from 8pm and considering the long history of both clubs, the first being in 1894 (where wolves won 3:1), it’s going to be a close one to call. If Wolves win they go ahead of Man U, but for Liverpool they need this win as Man City play 15th position Crystal Palace on Saturday 22nd December. As all Liverpool fans are aware, it’s never an easy season and so this cat and mouse game for the title may go on for some time yet.
The Reds go up against the Magpies on Boxing Day which again could be an easy match considering Newcastle aren’t looking too sharp at the moment. And then it’s the Gunners on the 29th who are looking fairly on top of their game. Man City seem to have the better luck of the draw this month, so take a deep breath.
