Hot Scott creams a cracker.

CLOSE calls for both sides in the first five minutes set the pattern for this tight-run tussle.

Both teams struggled to turn chances into goals, but the home side must have expected to score more than once.

McGleish finally cracked the Shrewsbury defence with his 11th goal of the season.

Heald's headed effort was cleared off the line and McGleish buried an unstoppable shot from the edge of the box. Some nine minutes later Town levelled after having survived a string of close calls.

Gayle latched on to a loose clearance on the right and fed Tretton at the far post for the Town defender to knock home from two yards.

Both sides battled hard for the winner and Shrewsbury had Kerrigan and Preece booked along with Barnet's Wilson, but the visitors must have departed the happier side.
