Goalkeeping errors by Jake Cole gifted Shrewsbury two goals in three minutes as Barnet were beaten 2-1.

Cole made a brilliant point-blank save from Matt Harrold's header after half-an-hour but eight minutes later dropped a shot from Mark Wright to give Craig Disley an easy chance from six yards.

Then Cole was slow to get to a centre from Jake Robinson and Harrold had time to turn and fire in from six yards.

But Barnet, with only one away point this season, launched a second-half fightback.

The lively Mark Marshall had goalkeeper Chris Neal at full stretch then a flowing move ended with a crisp finish by left-back Jordan Parkes after 62 minutes.

As Barnet pressed for the equaliser Shrewsbury had a golden chance in stoppage time but with only Cole between three Shrewsbury players and the third goal the Bees keeper made amends by saving from Bolton Wanderers loanee Tope Obadeyi.
