Shrewsbury Town 2-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Ollie Norburn's stoppage-time penalty earned Shrewsbury a dramatic come-from-behind victory against Wycombe Wanderers.

Jason McCarthy's free-kick gave the Chairboys the lead midway through the second half before Omar Beckles headed an 87th-minute equaliser.

Then came Norburn's late winner from the spot after Shaun Whalley was brought down by Adam El-Abd.

Shrewsbury were first to threaten as Whalley's early shot was kept out by Wycombe goalkeeper Yves Ma-Kalambay.

But the visitors then created several first-half chances, with Shrewsbury's Steve Arnold stopping Paris Cowan-Hall's close-range effort and then tipping Alex Samuel's volley over the crossbar.

Arnold also did well to block an Anthony Stewart header.

Wycombe took the lead as McCarthy found the top corner from a free-kick.

Shrewsbury equalised three minutes from time when substitute Beckles headed in Greg Docherty's free-kick, and skipper Norburn won it from the spot following El-Abd foul.
