The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

NOT only did Mike Jack­son get his first point as Shrews­bury’s care­taker man­ager, but he also halted a run of seven home de­feats as Tom Eaves gave the Shrews their first New Meadow goal in ten hours and 14 min­utes of play.

To have the bet­ter of the ac­tion against the league lead­ers is one thing, but the way in which the home side re­sponded to go­ing be­hind could sig­nal a change in for­tune.

Brent­ford on the other hand can count them­selves un­lucky to drop two points in the dy­ing min­utes, but if they are look­ing for a sac­ri­fi­cial lamb then look at prof­li­gate Mar­cello Trotta.

How­ever, con­sid­er­ing the harsh con­di­tions and bal­ance of play it is a good point to come away with and leaves the race for the ti­tle firmly in their hands.
