Goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams was the star for Tranmere as they rescued a point at Shrewsbury.

Marvin Morgan powered in a header on the stroke of half-time from Mark Wright's free-kick.

Fon Williams was at his best to deny Morgan and Terry Gornell, and the visitors hit back when Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro turned the ball in for 1-1.

The hosts might still have won it but for more inspired goalkeeping, as Asa Hall and Michael Hector were denied.
