The Shrewsbury run in the Capital One Cup is continuing for at least one more round after the first win against Blackburn at Ewood Park on Tuesday.

A first round upset was caused by the Shrews, who went ahead early through a Collins (9) goal, which was cancelled out by Lawrence (30) deflecting a cross into his own net to make it one-one.

Minutes later Barnett (32) scored what proved to be the winner to give Micky Mellon’s side a two-one win against the Championship side.

Not all of the first round matches have actually been complete mind!

Doncaster hosts Leeds in the remaining first round tie on Sky Sports tonight, after which the second around draw will be made at around 10pm.

A fair few upsets weren’t there with a number of Championship sides falling at the first hurdle, as well as some League 1 sides who might have been expected to progress.

Putting aside the Shrews’ win, Oxford, Carlisle, Hartlepool, Notts County, Luton, Barnet, Northampton, Walsall, Port Vale, Bury, York and Portsmouth would be the stand out results and the clubs to progress that could well be feared in the second round draw?

Arguably, the pick of the bunch of the first round winners were League 2 sides Oxford, Notts County, Luton, Barnet, York and Portsmouth….

Following the outcome of the match on Tuesday we know Shrewsbury will be in the pot, in which case who would you like us to get in round two?

Not only do we want you looking, as you are now, we’re also looking for your thoughts and views on the League Cup result the Shrews had too, so do share some of those with your comments below.
