SHREWS STAY ON A ROLL

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

THE band­wagon rolls on. Shrews­bury were just about ev­ery­one’s pre-sea­son tips for rel­e­ga­tion but this en­er­getic and clever side crafted by Paul Hurst have turned heads.

This vic­tory, ground out at a fast-im­prov­ing Old­ham, rep­re­sents a sign that this may not be a team who will sim­ply fade away.

De­fen­sively solid and with an ap­petite for hard run­ning in mid­field, in Ste­fan Payne the Shrews have a sprightly goal­get­ter.

Wi­gan have been seen off. Next up, Black­burn. Don’t bet against them.

STAR MAN JON NOLAN Shrews­bury
