Shrewsbury

Possible lineup: Marosi, Feeney, Flanagan, Anderson, Winchester, Perry, Kenneh, Bayliss, Shipley, Bowman, Udoh.

Burton Albion

With the way this team has been formed this summer, they might be one of the favorites for relegation. The club brought several players during the preseason and it was visible with the way the team started the campaign, that some things need to be quickly rectified.

Possible lineup: Blackman, Seddon, Sweeney, Hughes, Brayford, Oshilaja, Powell, Harper, Caprice, Gordon, Helm.

Player to Watch: Ryan Bowman

He scored in the opening game of the season which Shrewsbury won and that was a good sign for the veteran striker as the season started. This is Bowman's third season at the club after arriving from Exeter City two years ago where he scored 34 goals in over one hundred appearances. He is yet to find his range at that level for Shrewsbury but he is getting closer.

Bowman scored 18 goals with four assists in 93 matches that he played for his current team and he will be the top option at the striker's position as the season comes along. Earlier during his career, the Englishman player for Torquay, Gateshead, and Motherwell.
