Morris seals it as Shrews set pace
LEAGUE ONE: Shrewsbury continued their strong march at the top and maintained a fourpoint lead thanks to a 2-0 victory over Scunthorpe.
Stefan Payne’s first-half header put the leaders ahead before Carlton Morris sealed it with three minutes left as their opponents dropped to seventh.
Second-placed Wigan recorded a win by the same score thanks to a brace from Will Grigg. The Northern Ireland international smashed home his first from close range on the half-hour mark and he made no mistake from the spot when awarded a penalty after he was felled by James Wilson 10 minutes after the break.
Peterborough dropped down a spot to fourth as Oxford fought back for a 4-1 win after Jack Marriott had given the London Road side the lead. Josh Ruffels (48) equalised before Jack Payne set up both Wes Thomas (53) and Joe Rothwell (75), and Agon Mehmeti (82) added the gloss.
