Wigan also had another effort with 55 minutes on the clock as Kevin McNaughton pulled the ball back to the edge of the box and Tim Show struck over at the top right corner.

The best chance of the match arrived two minutes into the second period when Mathew Jones' cross from the left was headed onto the roof of the net at the near post by Hassall.

HALF-TIME: Shrewsbury Town 0-0 Wigan Athletic

At the other end, in first-half added time, Andy Kellett dragged a shot wide for the visitors and it remained goalless at the break.

There was another chance for Wilson from another Hassall knockdown for Town, but the striker blazed over the bar from the edge of the penalty area.

At the other end, Wigan's Louis Robles dragged a shot wide with 28 minutes on the clock.

Wigan's starting line-up featured five professional players compared to Shrewsbury's three, but it was the hosts who had the first chance when Hassall flicked on a header to fellow youth team striker Jordan Wilson whose shot to the near post was smother away by the Latics goalkeeper.

In a game of few chances, Town striker George Hassall's header onto the roof of the net was the closest either side went at Shrewsbury Sports Village.

Shrewsbury Town were held to a goalless draw against Wigan Athletic in the Final Third Development League - West Division on Tuesday afternoon.
