Shrewsbury held at home by late Gillingham strike

Mark Byrne scored a late equaliser as Gillingham picked up a point from a 1-1 draw at second-placed Shrewsbury.
Abu Ogogo's early goal had the Shrews on course to return to top spot in Sky Bet League One before Byrne struck nine minutes from time to extend the Gills' impressive run to just one defeat in their last 13 games.
Ogogo fired Shrewsbury in front in the 14th minute when he broke into the box to convert Shaun Whalley's inviting low cross from the right. It was captain Ogogo's first goal since scoring for Shrewsbury in April 2016.
Nathan Thomas saw a shot from just outside the box deflected just off target as the hosts continued to ask questions of the Gillingham defence.
Sheffield United loanee Thomas then drove over from even further out.
Gillingham goalkeeper Tomas Holy tipped a James Bolton volley over the bar midway through the second half before Byrne pulled Gills level in the 82nd minute with a fine shot from a tight angle to the top corner of the net.
Byrne then made a goalline clearance from Ogogo's late volley to ensure Gillingham collected a point.
