Burton Albion 0-4 Shrewsbury Town

Shrewsbury ended their three-game losing streak in League One with a comfortable 4-0 win at struggling Burton.

Former Brewers loanee Christian Saydee continued to be a thorn in Albion’s side, having scored the opener in the reverse fixture back in September, bagging a first-half double.

He could not have asked for a better start, capitalizing on a defensive error with just nineteen seconds on the clock to roll the ball into an empty net.

Albion responded well to that blow with skipper John Brayford seeing a header at the back post superbly cleared off the line by Chey Dunkley and Deji Oshilaja having a shot deflected inches wide after Mark Helm had almost capped his Burton debut with a goal.

Saydee scored his second with a composed, curling finish two minutes before half time when the ball landed at his feet after a scramble in the Brewers box.

Burton’s attempts to mount a second-half comeback were extinguished in 57 minutes when Luke Leahy won and converted a penalty after being brought down by Tom Hamer.

Shrewsbury capped their afternoon with a fourth in added time when Dunkley rose at the back post to head home.
