IN REVIEW: SHREWSBURY 0-1 IRON

19 September 2016

Continuing a brand new website feature, we take a look at all the essentials from our 1-0 victory at Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.


The Iron edged victory away at Greenhous Meadow following a dogged defensive display.

David Mirfin, partially-sighted at the time following an aerial challenge with Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, nodded home the game's only goal four minutes into first half stoppage time in what would be his final touch of the game before being replaced at the interval.

Two changes at the interval from Scunthorpe made it difficult for the hosts to break United down with a resilient rearguard display ultimately claiming the points and putting the side top of the league.

INJURY TIME GOAL: David Mirfin netted his first goal of the season just moments before half time before being replaced due to injury.



The Iron reached the summit of Sky Bet League One following their slender lead against Shrewsbury Town.

Bolton Wanderers dropped to second after a 1-0 defeat against ten-man Walsall. Jason McCarthy sealed victory for the Saddlers who had to play 75 minutes a man light following Joe Edwards' dismissal.

Port Vale maintained their 100% home record, but had to come from behind to defeat Gillingham with former Iron player Josh Wright putting the Gills ahead. AFC Wimbledon, Bury and Rochdale also emerged victorious in 2-1 victories.

Rochdale moved off the foot of the table with their triumph, with Coventry replacing them following their goalless draw with Oldham. MK Dons versus Oxford also ended without goals.

Northampton Town's 31-game unbeaten streak came to an end at Chesterfield with the hosts winning 3-1 at the ProAct Stadium. Bradford, the division's only remaining unbeaten side, shared the points with Bristol Rovers.
