Shrews stroll on: Match Review

Shrewsbury continued their excellent start to the season with a comprehensive 4-0 win over a demoralised Stockport at Edgeley Park.

Goals from Jake Robinson and Matt Harrold, and a brace from Mark Wright, underlined the visitors' dominance in a performance which must make them one of the early favourites for promotion.

Despite their superiority, it took the Shrews 40 minutes to break the deadlock, when leading scorer Robinson expertly placed his shot wide of Owain fon Williams in the Stockport goal for a 1-0 half-time lead.

A double substitution by County manager Paul Simpson 10 minutes into the second half failed to stop the visitors and just three minutes later Harold dispossessed Danny Swailes on the edge of the County box and fired home a second.

The rampant visitors then added a third less than five minutes later as a sweeping move saw Wright slide in at the far post for the goal of the game.

Wright's second came with just eight minutes of the game remaining, by which time the home side had become bereft of ideas and inspiration and lost their shape at the back.
