The Saturday fixture saw Salop beat Port Vale 3-2 at Montgomery Waters Meadow. Vale took the lead courtesy of Dominic Politic after 13 minutes, but Salop equalised through Chey Dunkley. Luke Leahy then put his side ahead 33 minutes in, followed by Killian Phillips grabbing the third to give a two-goal cushion going into the break. Vale went on to get another in the 52nd minute, but Salop secured all three points in the end.

For the visitors, Accrington’s Saturday fixture finished 0-0 in their trip away at Cheltenham Town.

Match Report | Accrington Stanley 1-0 Shrewsbury Town

18 February 2023

Shrewsbury Town's seven-game unbeaten run came to an end as they fell to a 1-0 defeat away to Accrington Stanley on Saturday afternoon.

Accrington broke the deadlock in the 13th minute when Rosaire Longelo sent in a low driven cross from the right, which Aaron Pressley glanced past Marko Marosi.
Town's best chance of the game came in the 40th minute when Ryan Bowman latched onto a loose pass from Harvey Rodgers.
The Salop number nine drove into the box and looked to lift the ball over the onrushing Lukas Jensen, but he made an excellent block to keep the ball out.

Both Tom Flanagan and Matt Pennington were restored to Town's starting line-up for the trip to the Wham Stadium.

Flanagan returned having been suspended for the win over Port Vale and the draw at Exeter.
Meanwhile, Pennington made his first start since January, having recovered from a concussion injury.
It meant manager Steve Cotterill opted for a 3-5-2 formation with Chey Dunkley joining Pennington and Flanagan in the back three.
In midfield, Killian Phillips lined up alongside Luke Leahy and Carl Winchester, with Christian Saydee and Bowman as the front two.
After suffering a dislocated shoulder whilst on loan with Telford, Kade Craig returned to the matchday squad for the first time this year.
The hosts also went with a 3-5-2 formation that saw former Town man Shaun Whalley partner Pressley in attack.
One of the game's big talking points arrived just a couple of minutes in when - off the ball - Accrington's Tommy Leigh appeared to deliberately swing at, and hit, Saydee in the face with his arm.
Referee Anthony Backhouse, though, missed the incident - with Leigh hugely fortunate to escape unpunished.
The home side went on to open the scoring in the 13th minute.
Longelo was the architect, with the former Newcastle man sending in a low cross that Pressley glanced past Marosi.
Just after the half-an-hour mark, the home side had an opportunity to double their lead through Whalley.  
From 18 yards out, the former Salop man met a cross with his head - with Whalley producing an effort that looped over the Town defence before hitting the post.
Five minutes before the interval, Shrewsbury had an opportunity to draw level when Bowman latched onto a loose back-pass.
The striker entered the box and looked to lift the ball over the onrushing Jensen.
But the keeper produced an excellent block to keep the ball out.
Steve Cotterill opted for two half-time changes, with Rekeil Pyke and Tom Bayliss replacing Elliott Bennett and Winchester, respectively.
With his first touch, Pyke clattered the crossbar with a left-footed curling shot from just outside the box in the 47th minute.
A minute later, fans and players were claiming for a penalty with Baba Fernandes handling in the box, but referee Blackhouse waved away the appeals.
Shrewsbury played the ball over the top of the Stanley defence in the 53rd minute, with Pyke latching onto it.
Town's number 15 attempted to curl the ball into the bottom corner, but Jensen was able to get down and parry the ball away.
With 20 minutes remaining Town had a couple more chances to equalise. The first came when Pennington's header was cleared and then when Jordan Shipley ran onto the ball from 25 yards out and narrowly put it over the bar.
Despite arguably having the best of the chances in the game, Town were unable to find an answer to Accrington's 13th-minute goal and thus saw their seven-game unbeaten run come to an end.
