Adam El-Abd gives Shrewsbury Town first win of the season
Shrewsbury Town hosted, early league pacesetters, Chesterfield looking for their first win of the season. They had previously been thrashed by Charlton, days after recording their first clean sheet of the season.
They started this match strongly but fell behind after 14 minutes. Jay O’Shea controlled a ball dropped to him and wrong-footed Ryan McGivern and Adam El-Abd before scoring for Chesterfield. The run of play swung to the visitors’ favor after the goal but they were soon under pressure from Shrewsbury, again.
The home side repeatedly threatened from corner kicks. Luck finally came their way in the 24th minute with their fourth corner kick of the match. Junior Brown got on the end of the corner to make it 1-1.
Chesterfield regained control in the second half, looking to continue their great start to the League One season. But their efforts to score were thwarted several times and they rued those missed chances late on.
Shrewsbury captain, Adam El-Abd scored his side’s second goal with only four minutes of regulation time left to play. El-Abd headed home a corner at the back post to complete the host’s comeback. The goal proved to be the winner.
The win lifted Shrewsbury to 20th in the League One table on four points after four rounds of matches. They next play Sunderland in the English League Cup. Chesterfield dropped to fourth place on the log.
