Shrews hit Gills for seven

Published Add your comment

Shrewsbury were Saturday's biggest winners as they thrashed Gillingham 7-0 in Coca-Cola League Two.

Michael Jackson put the Shrews on the way on 27 minutes at the New Meadow - and then Dave Hibbert, Ben Davies and Graham Coughlan virtually secured the win before half-time.

Shane Cansdell-Sherriff added another early in the second half, before Grant Holt struck from the spot and Davies wrapped up the scoring with his second three minutes from time.

Bradford dislodged Wycombe at the top of the table with a 4-1 defeat of Exeter at Valley Parade.

Michael Boulding and Peter Thorne both struck twice after the break as the Bantams staged an emphatic comeback.

Matthew Gill had given the Grecians the lead in the 38th minute.

Wycombe were held to a goalless draw by Brentford at Adams Park, a result which also saw them leapfrogged by Bury - 3-1 winners over Lincoln at Gigg Lane.

Andrew Morrell, Efetobore Sodje and Andy Bishop were the men on target for the Shakers - with the Imps having only a David Buchanan own goal to show for their efforts.
