Shrewsbury 3-1 Barrow
E-mail your reaction to Football Talk

Shrewsbury overcame a spirited challenge from Barrow to earn a place in the third round of the FA Cup for the first time since 1996 with a 3-1 win at Gay Meadow.

Kevin Ratcliffe's side were given a fright by the non-league outfit even after Jason van Blerk had given the hosts an early lead.

Van Blerk opened the scoring in the seventh minute and Nigel Jemson doubled their advantage with a fabulous volley 12 minutes later.

Barrow hit back on the hour mark with a header from Steve Housham and looked to have a serious chance of equalising.

But Shrewsbury's progression was finally sealed when Jemson curled home a long-range free-kick after 76 minutes.

The club captain was denied a hat-trick when he fired against the crossbar in the closing minutes.


Shrewsbury: Dunbavin, Moss, Drysdale, Artell, Redmile, Lowe, Murray, Atkins, Van Blerk, Jemson, Rodgers. Subs: Murphy, Kendall, Ian Stevens, Jagielka, Wilding.

Barrow: Bishop, Shaw, Maxfield, Salmon, Hume, Warren, Housham, Gaughan, Arnold, Bullimore, Holt. Subs: Tearney, Hall, Rogers, Robinson, Liddicott.

Referee: G Cain (Merseyside).
