Oldham 0-1 Shrewsbury

Oldham 0-1 Shrewsbury

Oldham   0 - 1   Shrewsbury

Steve Leslie fired home the winning goal just seven minutes from time as Shrewsbury Town caused a Johnstone's Paint Trophy upset at Boundary Park.

Graham Turner's side, sitting second in League Two with 10 points from four games, had already hit the woodwork twice against their League One hosts.

But Leslie finally got the goal when he turned sharply to shoot low past Oldham keeper Dean Brill at his near post.

That put the 1996 finalists through to Saturday's second round draw.

And it maintains Town's excellent start to the season following the veteran Turner's close season return to the club.

Shrewsbury were denied after less than three minutes when Matt Harrold met Leslie's corner and saw his header crash back off the bar.

But visiting keeper Chris Neal went full length to tip away Deane Smalley's header and also beat out Dale Stephens' 25-yard free-kick.

Smalley glanced off target midway through the half as Oldham began to take control. But the Latics did not threaten again until Paul Black fired at Neal on 63 minutes.

And it was the visitors who came closest to scoring, when Shane Cansdell-Sherriff's header was touched onto the post by Brill, before Turner's men snatched victory when Leslie turned sharply on the edge of the box and drilled into the bottom corner.

Oldham were a fraction from levelling in stoppage time but Stephens' free-kick shaved the upright.


Shrewsbury manager Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire: "It's a good result.

"We've hit the bar, we've hit the post, either of which could easily have gone in.

"We've got to be pleased with the mentality of the players -- that winning mentality's starting to come on that you need if you're going to be successful."
