Match report: Sheffield Wednesday 1 Shrewsbury Town 1

18 September 2021

Shrewsbury Town earn a point on the road against Darren Moore's Sheffield Wednesday.

Shrewsbury Town's Sky Bet League One trip to Hillsborough Stadium ended with Steve Cotterill's men leaving Sheffield with a point in the bag

Ryan Bowman was Town's man on the scoresheet as his first-half goal secured the Shrews a second consecutive draw.

A competitive start to the fixture saw both teams battling relentlessly for the ball in the middle of the park. With every spell of possession, both teams looked to advance forward to create issues in the final third. To Town's disappointment, it was the home side who found the opening breakthrough. With six minutes on the clock, Saido Berahino rose highest to meet a corner with a solid header that nestled into the corner of the Salop net.

In the 23rd minute, the home side were awarded a penalty after Josh Vela pulled down Olamide Shodipo inside the Salop box. However, to Town's relief, Barry Bannan's effort from the spot was dragged wide of the post.

Town finally registered a response in the 36th minute with a goal of their own to square things up. After a goalmouth scramble, Town forward Ryan Bowman was able to scuffle the ball over the line from half-a-yard out to bring Salop back on level terms at Hillsborough.

Luke Leahy was next to go close for the Shrews with a left-footed effort under pressure inside the box. The defender found himself through on goal but couldn't guide his shot on target due to the pressure of the Wednesday defender hot on his heels.

Despite Town and the home side pushing until the final whistle to find the winner, neither team could break the deadlock and the points were ultimately shared.
