Shrews might be short on confidence and struggling in the league but they are more than capable of getting a result as they have done in the FA Cup. There is never an easy game in this division and I expect Albion will be focused on the task in hand as usual. Not expecting any team changes after last weeks excellent win at Coventry.
Hoping for 3 points but not taking anything for granted.
Quite like Salop to be honest, their supporters have shown us respect over the last few seasons.

A real smash and grab win today, but take anything that comes our way at the moment. Winner came in the 93rd minute with a quick break after Burton had about 100 corners in a row!

The defence was so much better than last week. Teams have much more success against us by running at us rather than putting in crosses. Whitbread I thought played well, and Wellens in the midfield could be a key signing.

Would be good to see Burton stay up there for the rest of the season.

I would also say that the ref was poor today, just seemed to make it up as he went along. Stopped us taking a quick free kick in the first half as Wellens sock had rolled down, and pulled back a Burton free kick as he randomly blew his whistle after it had been taken. That is amongst a catalogue of other strange decisions.

No complaints from me, we didn't deserve to lose but didn't deserve to win either. Shrews battled well and got the points from a real smash and grab. I thought the ref Mr Salisbury had a good first half but completely lost the plot second half. He refereed us earlier in the season against Posh, just ask there fans about him. That's 2 diabolical games from him out of 2 reffin us !

Well done salop. Like terraceman says we didn't deserve to win. Perhaps thought we only had to turn up after winning at Coventry.
Let's see what we are made off now...a losing run or get straight back into winning ways
