Robinson sinks 10-man Shrews: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Torquay's on-loan Shrewsbury forward Jake Robinson scored twice against his parent club in a 5-0 thrashing as Paul Buckle's play-off chasing Gulls romped to their biggest League Two win of the season.

The Gulls were given a flying start by new loan signing Gavin Tomlin.

The on-loan Dagenham & Redbridge striker celebrated his United debut by racing on to a through ball from on-loan Ipswich striker Ronan Murray before cleverly clipping the ball over Town goalkeeper Ben Smith.

Jermaine Grandison was sent-off for Shrewsbury and Robinson then struck from a 54th-minute penalty and doubled his tally two minutes later with a thumping 20 yard strike to make it 3-0.

Striker Chris Zebroski got a fourth in the 70th minute when he buried Craig Stanley's cross before Shrewsbury skipper Ian Sharps appeared to get the last touch to Stanley's cross-cum-shot in the 85th minute.
