Harry Chapman bagged a superb brace for Shrewsbury Town at the weekend, as he enjoyed a dream home debut for the League One club.

Up against play-off chasing Peterborough United and without manager Steve Cotterill, who is currently fighting COVID-19, Chapman netted a stunning double to earn victory for the hosts.

Chapman lashed home with his left foot from the edge of the area just six minutes into the second half, before adding his second late on with another excellent strike.


His goals ensured the Shrews moved up to 17th place in the division thanks to the 2-0 home triumph.

Whilst it was a good day for Chapman, there was disappointment for Fleetwood Town and Charlie Mulgrew at Oxford United.

Mulgrew, who scored twice for Rovers on his last trip to the Kassam Stadium in 2017, was sent off just six minutes into the game against Karl Robinson's side for bringing down Matt Taylor outside the area, as Fleetwood suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat following Josh Ruffells' strike.

Elsewhere in the division, Hayden Carter wasn't in action following Burton's home game with Blackpool being postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests.

In League Two, Brad Lyons came on as a late substitute as Morecambe suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Tranmere Rovers.

Lyons entered the action in place of ex-Rover John O'Sullivan and featured for the final three minutes in a game that saw another Rovers old boy in Yann Songo'o sent off on the stroke of half time.

Continuing in the league, Tom White wasn't involved in Bolton Wanderers' victory over Leyton Orient.

North of the border in Scotland, Ross County and Joe Hilton weren't in action.
