A flick from Wilson from another cross from the left game Wolves their fourth, but Mandron pulled one back in the final minute after good footwork inside the penalty area before a controlled finish.

Wolves then moved two goals in front as Wilson converted from a low cross from the left.

The hosts then took the lead nine minutes after the break as Upton fired high into the roof of the net inside the box after a move which saw Town goalkeeper Callum Burton make a good low save.

Wolves equalised on the stroke of half-time, though, as Wilson finished from close range.

Shrewsbury, led by Ian Dawes, took the lead in the 27th minute though as Ashley Vincent's cross from a free-kick out on the right touchline was volleyed in first-time into the far left corner by Mangan in the box.

Mandron had the ball in the net after 15 minutes for Town after neat footwork and a through ball from Mangan released him on the inside left before a low finish across goal, but the Frenchman was flagged offside.

The Championship side were the eventual winners thanks to a hat-trick from Donovan Wilson and one for Regan Upton, but Town got two of their own through Andy Mangan and Mikael Mandron.

Seven members of the first team squad all got a run out in the game at Wolves' Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground.

Shrewsbury Town players picked up some much-needed game time in a development squad friendly at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday afternoon.
