Wycombe Wanderers made it eight league games without a win as they were defeated 1-0 at home to Shrewsbury Town.

Matt Bloomfield’s side started the better and nearly took the lead on 21 minutes when Luke Leahy saw his free-kick get tipped over the bar by Marko Marosi, before David Wheeler fired wide six minutes later.

For large parts of the contest, Wycombe bossed the ball but lacked any creativity, whilst the Shrews sat back and led Wanderers to enjoy possession.

This passive play allowed the visitors to sit back as they took the lead five minutes before the break through an incredible goal by Taylor Perry.

The ex-Cheltenham Town man picked up the ball from smashed home a terrific drive beyond Max Stryjek for his third goal of the season.

It was your typical smash-and-grab strike.

During the second period, Wycombe made several changes as Lyle Taylor, Garath McCleary, Chris Forini and Sam Vokes all came on, but Marosi in the Shrewsbury goal kept Wanderers at bay.

Wycombe remain 15th.
