Shrewsbury Town 0-1 Barnsley – BBC Sport

Barnsley made it three wins in a row in all competitions with a 1-0 battle at Shrewsbury.

Adam Phillips scored his first league goal for the Reds in the 10th minute, finding the bottom right corner from 12 yards after some fine play from Herbie Kane and Devante Cole.

Shrews forward Ryan Bowman came within inches of converting a Taylor Moore shot that went just wide, before Slobodan Tedic fired from five yards at the other end after Cole saved a header.

The Shrews struggled hard to break down the visitors and were limited to a series of rogue long-range shots as Barnsley showed why they have the best defensive record in Sky Bet League One.

Cole shot over the crossbar from the left of the box in the 85th minute after some good work from Phillips. At the other end, Luke Leahy shot well over 15 yards after a fight in the box.

There was an outbreak in the sixth minute of stoppage time after a foul on Barnsley goalkeeper Brad Collins, but the final whistle blew seconds later.
