Match ends, Plymouth Argyle 1, Shrewsbury Town 0.
Plymouth Argyle top scorer Reuben Reid returned from injury to help the Pilgrims beat Shrewsbury Town.
Reid's head met on-loan Bristol City midfielder Bobby Reid's first-time cross from the left to power home his sixth goal of the season on 33 minutes.
Dominic Blizzard's dipping shot from the left soon after was well saved.
Plymouth goalkeeper Luke McCormick palmed Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro's close-range header onto the bar in the second half and also denied James Collins.
Shrewsbury have not scored away from home in more than eight hours of football, since Andy Mangan's first-half match-winner at Leicester in the League Cup on 26 August.
Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon told BBC Radio Shropshire:
"I would call anyone a liar in this stadium who says that we didn't deserve something out of this game - but we'll continue to play the way we have been .
"I can't question the commitment from any of our players. We just need to be better from set plays and be more clinical in front of goal.
"But I couldn't have asked any more from the players. I am happy with the group of players I've got. We have players who will continue to work hard. The fans stuck with us to end and were fantastic."
