Shrewsbury’s League 1 season continued with a nil-nil draw with Fleetwood at the Highbury Stadium on Sunday.

The Shrews had to settle with a point at Fleetwood, which was enough to keep them above the Cod Army who are occupying the final relegation place.

These were the other results.

Burton 3-1 Bradford
Chesterfield 0-1 Peterborough
Crewe 2-0 Rochdale
Gillingham 0-0 Swindon

Barnsley 3-0 Bury
Fleetwood 0-0 Shrewsbury

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Wigan (two-nil), Millwall (three-nil) and Barnsley (three-nil) for me.

Wigan are looking a good bet for a top two automatic place and at this stage you wouldn’t bet against them coming through to win the title with the two-nil win at Sheffield United leaving them well placed but the Bramall Lane defeat was a setback for the Blades’ own hopes.

Another side, perhaps not looking like they’ll challenge for automatic (unless the impressive run continues), that looks good for a top six finish and a play-off place is Millwall with them going away from second place Walsall with a three-nil win at the Banks’ Stadium.

Barnsley recovered from the loss of boss Lee Johnson, who opted to leave for former club Bristol City, in positive fashion with a three-nil win over Bury at Oakwell to keep the winning run going to leave them looking for to come from relegation trouble to a play-off place perhaps!

Who was the Shrewsbury MotM in this game? That’s what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
