Football Fixtures in January for Shrewsbury Town
Loosing just two matches in December has seen Shrewsbury Town pull up the table to 17th position. With just three points in it to 12th position could their first game in 2019, against 11th place Fleetwood see Town make a miraculous turnaround. It’s a home game on New Year’s Day, so we hope that the boys are in fighting spirits and ready for action.
On Sat 5th January, Sam Ricketts squad take on Stoke City in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. Stoke are a formidable force currently residing 12th place in the Championship but that doesn’t mean Shrewsbury Town haven’t got it in them. Another cup game takes place on Tues 8th Jan as Shrewsbury Town take on Port Vale in the Football League Trophy round three. This game looks a lot more promising with Port Vale being the underdogs.
Back to the campaign, Shrewsbury face Charlton on Sat 12th, Blackpool on the 19th, Doncaster on the 26th and ending the month against Bradford City on the 29th January. Sadly most of these teams are in a far better position than town, but that’s not to say David can’t beat Goliath. At least we can close the month by thrashing relegation zone, Bradford City.
Liverpool fixtures for January
The game of cat and mouse continues but with some air to breathe as Liverpool pull ahead of city by seven points. We’ll be showing the first game of the season which is likely to be spectacular as Liverpool face up against Man City on Thurs 3rd January at 8pm. That’s followed by another televised event where Liverpool go up against Wolves on Mon 7th Jan 2o19 at 19:45pm as part of the FA cup 3rd round. Albert can’t wait as the last time they faced up it Liverpool beat Wolves 2:0, will history repeat itself?
On Sat 12th Jan the Reds play Brighton, the only non televised Liverpool match of the month. Followed by Crystal Palace on the 19th and Leicester City on the 30th, both of which will be showing around Albert’s Shed. If Jürgen Klopp’s Reds stay on form, then most of these games will be a walk in the park, further extending their lead, but City has an easy run in January so it will remain tense for another month.
The ups and downs of being a rank outsider, Wolves are pushing hard against the big boys to show they have the might for the Premier League, currently sitting 7th place just behind Man United. Their first match of 2019 sees Wolves play against 14th position Crystal Palace on Wed 2nd Jan, we bet Nuno will be feeling the heat after an October 1:0 defeat against the Eagles. Next up is the FA Cup round 3 clash against Premier League table toppers, Liverpool on Mon 7th Jan which we’ll be showing from 19:45.
Back with their heads in the league, Wolverhampton Wanders play Man City on the 14th Jan (20:00) and Leicester City on the 19th Jan 2019 (12:30), both of which you can watch with Albert. Sadly the last game in the month won’t be on our screens, that Wolves vs West Ham on the 29th January 2019. But what’s going to happen?
We predict that the middle of the month is going to be tricky, and so there’s a risk that the team will lose some of that spark. But as the month goes on, they’ll be facing some less worthy opponents to keep that respectable table position.
