Darlington   2 - 1   Shrewsbury

Darlington 2-1 Shrewsbury

Darlington 2-1 Shrewsbury

Bottom club Darlington clinched their first win of the season after coming from behind to beat Shrewsbury.

The Shrews took an early lead when Lewis Neal headed home Jake Robinson's cross from close range.

Robinson should have made it 2-0 when he ran clear but fired wide and the Quakers soon levelled when Jamie Devitt fired a free-kick in off a post.

Simon Thomas hit the winner for the home side, following up after Steve Phillip parried an Ian Miller shot.


Shrewsbury manager Paul Simpson told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"The performance wasn't good enough and we've allowed Darlington to get their first win of the season, which should never have been the case.

"After getting ourselves into a good position, we suddenly decided we wanted to be clever and we let ourselves down by doing that.

"You can say their equaliser was a little bit of bad luck, but that's not the issue. Players who are good players didn't do the right thing and became bad players."
