Tom Eaves marked his return to Shrewsbury Town with a goal as they secured victory at lowly Stevenage.

Francois Zoko tapped in to put the home side ahead before on-loan Adam Reach lifted an equaliser over the keeper.

Fellow loan man Tom Eaves, who signed for a second spell with Shrewsbury from Bolton Wanderers on Thursday, then nodded home Paul Parry's cross to put Shrewsbury 2-1 up at half-time.

Joe Jacobson sealed the points when he headed home Darren Jones' cross.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Shrewsbury Town manager Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"It feels great to have an away win. The dressing room is buzzing and we feel we have deserved it.

"We have been unfortunate to fall behind here but finally when it comes right we are delighted. We opened them up with our passing against a difficult side - and Adam Reach had a good finish to level.

"The play building up, and keeping the ball is what we have been looking for from our training sessions and we have looked very strong. But to defend, at 3-1, was difficult. You can't stop all the service into your penalty area and we dealt with it very well."
