Shrewsbury’s League 1 season continued with a draw against Bradford at Valley Parade on Saturday

With half time approaching the deadlock was broken when Clarke (43) scored for Bradford to give them a one-nil lead at the break.

It didn’t take long for Shrewsbury to draw level in the second half though, making the kind of start to the half Mellon would have hoped for as they were level within a minute!

Barnett’s effort hit Bradford defender McArdle before hitting Barnett (46) again and leaving Bantams ‘keeper Williams beaten.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Saturday 15th August
Barnsley 1-0 Burton Alb
Blackpool 0-2 Rochdale
Bradford 1-1 Shrewsbury
Bury 2-2 Swindon
Millwall 0-4 Coventry
Oldham 1-0 Fleetwood
Peterboro 2-1 Colchester
Port Vale 1-1 Gillingham
Scunthorpe 2-0 Crewe
Sheff Utd 2-0 Chesterfld
Southend 0-2 Walsall

Sunday 16th August
Wigan 0-0 Doncaster

Looking at these results the stand out one was definitely the Coventry win at Millwall, with Blackpool’s misery continuing with Rochdale beating them at Bloomfield Road.

Coventry, who have started the season well, look to have a real goalscorer on their hands with Newcastle teenage loanee striker Armstrong taking his tally up to four-goals for the club in the opening week included two at the Den on Saturday in this four-nil win for the Sky Blues.

All of that after Millwall missed an early penalty chance to take the lead!

Blackpool, even at this stage, look likely to be a stone that continues to sink following Premier League relegation a few years back and Championship relegation last season, just five-years ago they topped the Premier League however it’s looking ominous that a place in League 2 next season already awaits them….

Shrewsbury are back in action this midweek with another League 1 game against Chesterfield at Greenhous Meadow.
