Rodgers nets twice for reserves

28 February 2013

Goals from Rodgers (2) and Summerfield some Town share the points

Luke Rodgers scored twice as Shrewsbury Town's reserves picked up a point from a 3-3 draw at Wrexham in the Central League.
Town trailed 3-1 at half time in a match played at Wrexham's Colliers Park training ground before hitting back after the break to equalise and they might have ran out victors in the end as several decent chances went begging.
Wrexham, whose side included veteran former Burnley winger Glen Little, started brightly and forged an early 2-0 lead.
Town were back in the hunt when a raking pass from Luke Summerfield picked out Ryan Woods, playing at right back, and his cross was volleyed home from close range by Rodgers, an unused substitute for the first team against Doncaster the previous night.
Wrexham struck again before the break with the Town defence carved open and the finish left goalkeeper Joe Anyon with no chance.
Town were much improved in the second half and the impressive Summerfield cut the arrears to 3-2 with a well struck volley from 25 yards after good work from Rob Purdie.
Shrewsbury started to gain control and, after Woods hit the bar from long range, it was no surprise when they eventually pulled level with Rodgers combining well with Summerfield to slide a shot under the goalkeeper 20 minutes from time.
Town then pushed forward in search of a winner but it proved elusive in front of watching manager Graham Turner.
Town reserves are quickly back in Central League as they host Rotherham United in a rearranged game at the Greenhous Meadow next Wednesday afternoon (2pm).
TOWN RESERVES: Joe Anyon; Ryan Woods, Connor Goldson, Yado Mambo, Dominic Smith; Jack Gwilliams, Luke Summerfield, Aaron Wildig, Rob Purdie; Luke Rodgers, Ryan Doble. Unused subs: David Easthope, Charlie Musselwhite, Callum Burton.
