Mark Wright struck his second goal of the game in injury-time to give Shrewsbury a 2-1 win at Crewe.

Wright ran 20 yards before drilling home a superb winner having opened the scoring from close-range after five minutes.

It was Patrick Ada's mistake that gifted Shrewsbury a dream start. The defender overhit his backpass beyond keeper Rhys Taylor, leaving Wright with the simplest of finishes into an empty net.

Shrewsbury could have extended their lead but were twice denied by the woodwork in quick succession. Jake Robinson turned and crashed the ball against the foot of a post before Temitope Obadeyi drilled the rebound against the crossbar.

Shaun Miller equalised four minutes after the break, collecting Clayton Donaldson`s pass before beating Chris Neal from eight yards.

Ada was the guilty party again when he brought down Robinson inside the box. Taylor spared his blushes by saving Robinson`s spot kick but Wright had the final word.
