WASTEFUL TROTTA HURTS BEES
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.
