Shrewsbury and Cheltenham shared the spoils after a dull game at the Prostar that ended goalless and did for for the away side`s relegation battle than it did for the hosts` play-off charge.
Neither side reproduced the form that brought them decisive wins at the weekend and it was the visitors who looked sharper throughout.
Justin Richards should have done better with half a dozen chances but found David Button in fine form in the home goal.
And when he did find the net 10 minutes from time he was offside.
Shrewsbury failed to test Scott Brown until near the end and even then Jamie Cureton - still without a goal since his February loan move from Norwich - blazed over from six yards.
