Shrewsbury   1 - 1   Wycombe

Shrewsbury 1-1 Wycombe

Shrewsbury 1-1 Wycombe

Shrewsbury and Wycombe were unable to find a winner in an entertaining match between League Two promotion hopefuls.

Town took the lead against the run of play, James Collins capitalising on a defensive error by Matt Bloomfield to score from close range on 31 minutes.

But veteran Gareth Ainsworth struck a controversial second-half equaliser, Town boss Graham Turner insisting that his header did not cross the line.

Both teams had chances to win it but ultimately a draw was a fair result.

The result leaves the hosts still four points behind Wycombe, who occupy the last of the automatic promotion slots.


Shrewsbury Town boss Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"We've been robbed by a linesman's decision. He couldn't have possibly seen it.

"We've got a camera behind the goal, we've got freeze frame and it was not on the line, let alone over it.

"The goalkeeper's body would have been between the ball and the linesman. It was blatantly not a goal."
