FA Cup: Shrewsbury Town 1-0 Scunthorpe United highlights

Shrewsbury Town are through to the FA Cup third round after a dramatic victory against Scunthorpe United.

Aaron Amadi-Holloway scored the winning goal on 35 minutes, sending a right-footed strike into the bottom corner.

Kyle Wootton should have equalised for Scunthorpe with a header, which went over the bar.

The visitors were awarded a penalty in controversial fashion in the 88th minute, when referee Ben Toner adjudged that James Bolton had pulled Lee Novak's shirt - although there seemed to be very little contact.

However, goalkeeper Steve Arnold denied Josh Morris from the spot to earn Shrewsbury a third-round place for the third time in four seasons.

It also meant a fifth win in six games for managerless Shrewsbury under caretaker boss Danny Coyne.
