Salop earn all three points against Hull City away from home.
Shrewsbury Town’s afternoon in Hull ended with Salop securing all three points with a 1-0 win over Sky Bet League One leaders Hull City.
A first half goal from Charlie Daniels was the difference between the two sides as his chip secured the win.
An even first 15 minutes started with the two teams looking to progress into danger areas at every given opportunity. That forward positive play allowed Salop an early chance at goal. Shaun Whalley broke well down the right flank and managed to pick out Ollie Norburn on the edge of the box but the midfielder’s shot was pushed just wide of the post.
As the half progressed, Salop grew further into the game and made the pressure tell in the 28th minute. A smart forward move saw Dan Udoh play Charlie Daniels in on goal and the left-back smartly dinked the ball over the on-rushing Matt Ingram to give Town the lead.
It was the Shrews who looked the stronger team despite the difference in league position. Steve Cotterill would have been happy with his team as the Shrews went into the break with the advantage.
Honeyman had a real chance to give the home side an equaliser late on in the tie. The midfielder got on the end of a perfectly weighted cross but his volley flew over Matija Sarkic’s bar.
However, resolute and organised defending saw the Shrews over the line. Town’s dominating performance during the first half and early stages of the second were rewarded with Salop securing all three points over the league leaders.
