Match report: Shrewsbury Town 0 Burton Albion 1

7 August 2021

Shrewsbury Town narrowly lose out to Burton Albion.

The opening fixture of Shrewsbury Town's 2021/22 campaign came to an end with Burton Albion securing all three points after a one-goal win away from home.

Despite Steve Cotterill's men putting in a solid performance and being the stronger team in the second half, the Brewers held on to register the win at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

The first real chance of the game fell the way of the visitors. Jacob Maddox found himself through on goal but Town's goalkeeper - Marko Marosi - converged well on his opponent to parry away a powerful shot from close range.

Jonny Smith was next to test Town's number one with a curling effort from outside the box with just under 30 minutes gone. However, Marosi leaped emphatically to get two strong hands on the ball - parrying the shot away for a corner. Town stood firm and managed to clear the ball from danger.

The away side did find the breakthrough with 31 minutes on the clock. A corner was fired into the box and John Brayford rose highest to knock a looping header over Town's number one.

Newly named Salop Captain Ethan Ebanks-Landell came agonisingly close to giving Salop an equaliser with 60 minutes on the clock. The defender jumped well to meet an Elliott Bennett cross but his header was well blocked by the Brewers' defence.

Luke Leahy drew a brilliant save from Brewers shot-stopper Ben Garratt in the 68th minute. Rekeil Pyke found the defender in a yard of space on the edge of the box, and with his weak foot, Leahy curled an effort towards the corner of the net - only to be denied by a fingertip save.

Town continually pushed for the next goal and troubled the away side with every foray forward. David Davis remained a calm influence in the middle of the park and looked to spark an attack with every ball. Leahy's delivery into the box gave Town chances but Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's men remained solid at the back.

The game came to an end with the away side seeing out the narrow advantage.

Salop: Marko Marosi, Luke Leahy, Ethan Ebanks-Landell, Matthew Pennington, Aaron Pierre (George Nurse, 45), Shaun Whalley (Nathanael Ogbeta, 45), Josh Vela, Daniel Udoh, Ryan Bowman (Rekeil Pyke, 63), David Davis, Elliott Bennett.

Match tickets are available up until the day of the game and on Match Day.

As with the pilot events the Club ran during the lockdown, tickets will be available to be added to your mobile device as a ‘Digital Ticket’. This is the best way to avoid queues (either at the Ticket Office or on the phone) and worked really well for the pilot events we had. If you are unsure how to use ‘Digital Tickets’ please contact the ticket office where someone will happily explain how the system works. Every supporter will receive an email if they choose this route at purchase with the option on the email to print the ticket(s) attached to the email or add to Apple wallet or Google Pay

Supporters are encouraged to buy in advance if they can to help beat the queues on matchday.

Shrewsbury Town encourages the use of mask-wearing in the concourses and in enclosed areas of the stadium.

Social Distancing Seats

For the start of the 2021/22 season, we understand that some supporters will be nervous about returning to full capacity venues. For this reason, we will be offering some socially distanced seating should you still want to be socially distanced from other supporters. These seats will be in Block 12 and 13. NB: Season Ticket holders in these areas will not be affected and can continue to use their Season Ticket to access the stadium and sit in their usual seats as we have worked our plans around season ticket holders' existing seating.

Current Season Ticket holders in other blocks can move into the Socially Distanced area should they wish but they need to inform the Ticket Office first and be issued with a separate physical ticket for that game.

Ticket Office opening hours are 10am – 2pm Monday to Friday and 11am – Kick Off on a Match Day Saturday.
