Shrewsbury   0 - 0   Grimsby

Shrewsbury 0-0 Grimsby

Shrewsbury 0-0 Grimsby

Shrewsbury and Grimsby both wasted good chances - and had to settle for a point apiece at the Prostar Stadium.

Waide Fairhurst and Nathan Elder both hit the Grimsby woodwork, while winger Jamie Devitt forced an excellent acrobatic save from Nick Colgan.

Shrewsbury goalkeeper David Button made a brilliant stop to deny Adam Proudlock from eight yards.

Jean-Louis Akpa-Akpro teed up Barry Conlon with 15 minutes left but he shot wide of the home team's goal.

Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Simpson told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"We didn't do enough to earn all three points.

"It was a real scruffy, horrible game, no tempo to it.

"Unfortunately Grimsby have got what they set out to get.

"It's very frustrating. We did have a couple of opportunities that we didn't take.

"We're not a million miles away from getting results, but we've got to be more ruthless."
