Shrewsbury   0 - 1   Accrington Stanley

Shrewsbury 0-1 Accrington

Shrewsbury 0-1 Accrington

Bobby Grant's 14th goal of the season saw Accrington stretch their run to 18 points out of a possible 21, despite having Andrew Proctor sent off late on.

Jake Robinson should have put the home side ahead but side-footed wide after rounding goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis.

But Grant fired in from close range after a mix-up between Kelvin Langmead and Shane Cansdell-Sherriff.

Home keeper David Button made several fine saves before Proctor was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Shrewsbury's home defeat saw the end of their five-game unbeaten run, which began with a 2-2 draw at home to Macclesfield on Boxing Day.

Now the League Two play-off hopefuls are hoping to embark on another run, starting with the return game at Macclesfield this Saturday (6 February, 1500 GMT).


Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Simpson told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"We started well by getting the ball up to our strikers and we had a great opportunity with Jake Robinson.

"After that, we stopped turning them, stopped putting them under pressure, and gave ourselves problems when we were a bit too tippy-tappy.

"We had a go at them second half, but it's a massive disappointment to have lost the way we did.

"But we've got to deal with it, move on and get ready for the next one - and get on another good run, simple as that."
