Accrington Stanley 2-3 Shrewsbury Town

Substitute Daniel Udoh's last-minute goal completed a superb come-from-behind win as Shrewsbury beat Accrington 3-2 after being 2-0 down.

Former Stanley defender Omar Buckles was judged to have pushed over Colby Bishop in the area and the striker sent Max O'Leary the wrong way to make it three goals in three games to open the scoring.

Soon after, Dion Charles produced something out of nothing, curling home from 20 yards for his first English Football League goal.

Shrewsbury got back into it after 77 minutes when Ryan Giles whipped in a cross which goalkeeper Dimi Evtimov cleared into the path of Mark Hughes, who hit it into his own net.

Then two substitutes helped Shrews to the win. First Fejiri Okenabirhie turned home a corner from close range after 86 minutes to make it 2-2.

Udoh then raced from midfield and slotted the ball past the outrushing Evtimov to seal their second win of the campaign.
