FOOTBALL: Shrewsbury Town V Scarborough.

Striker Duane Darby repaid Shrewsbury Town manager Jimmy Quinn's faith with a double to strengthen their play-offs push.

Darby's first goals after a ten goal drought helped turn a half-time deficit against Scarborough into a 4-1 win at Gay Meadow. The home fans jeered the Shrews off the pitch at half-time after Chris Senior had headed the Yorkshire visitors ahead in the 19th minute following a defensive mix-up.

But Darby fired Shrews level from Martin O'Connor's pass on 54 minutes and Jake Sedgemore curled in a 25-yard free-kick nine minute later. Though Luke Rodgers' red card for two bookings reduced the hosts to ten men, they added a third when O'Connor lashed home from 20-yards and after Boro had Scott Kerr dismissed, man of the match Darby swept home Ryan Lowe's right-wing cross.

'I've stuck by Duane,' said Quinn. 'Colin Cramb's been breathing down his neck but Duane gives something different to the team. That display was the Duane Darby I've seen in the past.'
