It was also a very good day for Peterborough, who eased to a 3-0 win over Port Vale. Jonson Clarke-Harris scored a first-half double and Joe Ward made sure of the points in the 73rd minute.
Shrewsbury trail Posh only on goal difference after a 2-1 win over bottom side Burton. Victor Adeboyejo canceled out Christian Saydee’s opener, but Ryan Bowman netted the winner in the 66th minute.
