Match ends, Burton Albion 1, Shrewsbury Town 0.
George Taft scored the first goal of his career to give Burton a narrow win over promotion rivals Shrewsbury.
The defender steered a half-volley into the bottom-right corner from 12 yards following Matthew Palmer's corner.
Shrewsbury dominated the first half as Jon McLaughlin saved two James Collins headers and Bobby Grant's shot.
After the goal, Burton's Kelvin Maynard shot wide and hit the legs of Shrews keeper Jayson Leutwiler before Mickey Demetriou blazed over for the visitors.
The victory for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's Brewers sees them leapfrog Shrewsbury into second place in League Two, a point behind leaders Wycombe.
Burton Albion manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told BBC Radio Derby:
"They came here to beat us and were ready for the battle but my boys were ready for them as well. I think Shrewsbury is a very very good side and they gave us a lot of questions to answer and luckily we could answer them at times.
Sometimes they gave us problems but they are a good team and you have to respect them. We did respect them and I must say we looked a unit, we looked very hard to break down and at times, when we had the ball, we looked to give them problems.
We were very calm on the ball and looked like we were getting chances. I was very happy with the performance and the points"
