Season Review: March

7 June 2013

We take a look back at the 2012/13 season

March started poorly for Shrewsbury but got better the longer it went on with the undoubted highlight an impressive away win at MK Dons.
Graham Turner was not happy with Town's display in losing 3-1 at local rivals Walsall and Shrewsbury were also beaten the following week, going down 2-0 at home to Leyton Orient.
But then came a memorable midweek visit to stadium:mk with Town pulling off their fourth win in seven away games to stun Karl Robinson's side 3-2.
Tom Eaves grabbed two fine goals to put Town in command before Gay Meadow old boy Ryan Lowe pulled the Dons level with strikes either side of half time.
But Town were destined to have the final word with home defender Anthony Kay turning the ball into his own net under no real pressure for what proved to be the winner.
It was the first of three successive away games for Shrewsbury, with Luke Summerfield's second headed goal against Crewe Alexandra this season earning a point from an entertaining 1-1 draw at Gresty Road.
Good Friday saw Town, bolstered by the loan arrivals of right back James Hurst from West Brom and striker Akwasi Asante from Birmingham, on the road to Carlisle United.
Heavy traffic on the M6 meant a number of Town fans were unable to make it to Brunton Park but those who did reach Cumbria saw the game come alive in the second half of a 2-2 draw.
Town twice led through a Matt Richards free kick and Yado Mambo's first goal for the club, only to be pegged back by two penalties from Lee Miller.
