11 December 2017

Shrewsbury Town FC

Shrewsbury Town left it late to avoid a third successive Sky Bet League One defeat as they earned a 1-1 draw at MK Dons on Saturday.

Paul Hurst's men fell behind to Peter Pawlett's goal just before the hour-mark, but rescued a point when Shaun Whalley struck four minutes from time.

Midfielder Ben Godfrey played 72 minutes for Salop, with Carlton Morris featuring as a late substitute while Ebou Adams wasn't in the matchday squad.

Elsewhere in the division, Doncaster Rovers were beaten in dramatic fashion as Josh Ruffels' long-distance effort in the 96th minute saw them beaten 1-0 at Oxford United.

Harry Toffolo played the full match for Rovers, who drop to 20th in the table after 21 games.

In Sky Bet League Two, Lincoln City moved into the play-off positions with a 2-0 win at Yeovil Town.

Second half goals from Matt Green and Matt Rhead gave them victory; defender Sean Raggett helping his side keep a clean sheet.

Diallang Jaiyesimi also had a telling role for Grimsby Town, winning a penalty in their home game against Forest Green Rovers.

The visitors saw Jack Fitzwater shown a second yellow card for bringing down Jaiyesimi in the box on 37 minutes, leaving them with ten men.

Although Sam Jones saw his penalty saved, Mitch Jones was alert to the rebound to tuck home - that ultimately being enough to give Grimsby a 1-0 win.

In the National League, Michee Efete was withdrawn through injury after 14 minutes for Torquay United away to Tranmere Rovers.

United went on to lose the game 3-0, resulting in them dropping a place to 22nd in the table.

Finally, Henry Pollock featured as a substitute for Norwich United as they were beaten 2-1 at Grays Athletic in the Isthmian League North Division.
