Match report: Shrewsbury Town 2 Lincoln City 2

10 August 2021

Shrewsbury Town progress into the next round of the Carabao Cup after a penalty shoot-out win.

Marko Marosi was the first keeper tested with just over 10 minutes of the fixture gone. Teddy Bishop managed to sneak through on goal but his curling effort towards the far post was well claimed by Town's shot-stopper.

Town had their own chance to find the breakthrough in the 23rd minute. Ryan Bowman got on the end of a smart through ball from Elliott Bennett and managed to let off a shot. However, Imps number one Josh Griffiths got two strong hands to palm away any danger.

The away side managed to find the breakthrough early in the second-half. The Imps started the quicker of the two teams and managed to hit Town with a swift double. Tom Hopper notched first after meeting Cohen Bramall's inch-perfect cross, and Bishop followed it up two minutes later in the 52nd with a great strike from distance.

Despite a difficult start to the half, Dan Udoh halved the deficit in the 69th minute, seconds after entering the pitch as a substitute. After a goalmouth scramble, Town's forward swiftly latched onto a loose ball well inside the box to slam home a driven finish past the 'keeper.

Dan Udoh found his second goal of the night two minutes before the 80th. The forward picked up the ball on the outside of the box, earned half a yard of space, and proceeded to dispatch a spectacular driven shot right into the bottom corner of the net; giving the goalkeeper no time to get down.

After a sublime comeback from Steve Cotterill's men, the Imps managed to hold on to send the game to a penalty shoot-out. Town triumphed with Salop academy graduate Tom Bloxham knocking home the final penalty.

The teams:

Salop: Marko Marosi, Elliott Bennett, Matthew Pennington, Aaron Pierre, George Nurse, Luke Leahy (Josh Daniels, 65), David Davis, Nathanael Ogbeta, Josh Vela, Ryan Bowman (Dan Udoh, 65), Rekeil Pyke (Tom Bloxham, 85).

Ticket News

Lincoln City ticket update

26 July 2021

We’re aware some supporters have addressed their concern about claiming their ticket for Town’s Carabao Cup tie against Lincoln City.

The Club would like to clarify that we have closed the South stand based on previous attendance numbers in the first round of this competition. Two seasons ago, we closed the West Stand as we faced Rotherham in the first round of the Carabao Cup where the attendance was 2830. At the time we did not receive any negative feedback and given the cost implications of opening up this stand, we felt this was the right decision to do the same for the Lincoln fixture.

We are also aware fans have raised the point of Cup ticketing priority. To clarify, this comes into practice should we proceed into the later rounds of a cup competition where the stadium is fully open. Fans will be able to then claim their season ticket seat ahead of non-season ticket holders. This will also apply for round one of the FA Cup where the stadium will be fully open. We could have offered fans a chance to claim their seat first for the Lincoln tie but this would not be fair to fans in the South stand whose seat is unavailable due to the stand being closed.

We were also aware of a glitch in the Ticketmaster system (which has now been resolved) which saw some supporters struggling to obtain a ticket in certain blocks in the West Stand. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this might have caused.
