Shrewsbury Town 0-1 Swindon Town

Simon Ferry's second-half goal handed Swindon a narrow victory against Shrewsbury Town.

The midfielder scrambled the ball past Chris Weale after Andy Williams headed down Adam Rooney's cross.

Loanee Sam Winnall went close for the hosts but his 30-yard effort was saved by Wes Foderingham and he then headed Aaron Wildig's free-kick over the bar.

Ex-Shrewsbury striker James Collins missed from four yards out after good work by Williams in the first half.


Shrewsbury Town manager Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"We didn't deserve a point. We came up against better players and we made silly errors.

"Generally we were quite poor with the ball and I thought we had weathered the storm - but then conceded."

Swindon Town manager Paolo di Canio told BBC Wiltshire:

"A typical game that in the past we used to dominate and maybe lose.

"In general, for 70 minutes, we dominated the game (and) we should score more goals.

"At the end we came out with three points (which were) fully deserved.

"If you want to stay at the top you have to suffer in the way we suffered today."
