Shrewsbury Town V Sunderland 3 2 - Highlights Reaction

A hat-trick for Chris Maguire is enough to ensure a point for Shrewsbury Town‚ but what about the other goals? Cameron Brannagan and Matty Taylor scored for Oxford‚ and Chris Andrew's low cross caused confusion in the back line. Read on to see the highlights reaction from the game. And don't forget to share this match with your friends and family.

Chris Maguire scored a hat-trick for Shrewsbury Town

Shrewsbury Town's Chris Maguire scored a hat-Trick in their 3-1 win at Sunderland on Tuesday. The former Sunderland striker scored twice in the first half and converted a penalty on 57 minutes before sealing the victory with his third goal on 75 minutes. The game was marred by Carl Winchester's red card for a late tackle on Chris Maguire. Although the result was not to Sunderland's best‚ Maguire's hat-trick made him the talk of the pitch‚ with fans celebrating in front of Lee Johnson. The home side had plenty of possession but were unable to create enough chances to take advantage of their attacking play. They were exposed by a quick break by Maguire‚ who scored from the penalty spot. Sunderland were left with little hope after a late equaliser from Wycombe. The sunderland side had played well in recent weeks‚ but the Stadium of Light pitch did not help. The Cobblers' attacking options were strengthened by signing Shaun Miller‚ who returned from a loan spell last season. Meanwhile‚ Alex Nicholls and Paul Green have returned from loan spells at relegated Barnet. The Cobblers' defence will need to be at their best as they aim to get back into the league. A first clean sheet for the Cobblers would be a massive boost to the back line.

Matty Taylor and Cameron Brannagan scored for Oxford United

A 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town has given Oxford United their fifth straight league win and kept them up with the top four. Taylor scored his 21st goal of the season and Bowman netted his first goal since Boxing Day. Cameron Brannagan scored a late penalty to make the game more interesting. Oxford manager Karl Robinson made two changes to his side from the previous weekend. Nathan Holland and Sam Long were introduced after the injured Anthony Forde. The first goal was from a penalty‚ and both were excellent. Brannagan's first penalty was awarded after Lee fouled Taylor. His second penalty came after Pontus Dahlberg fouled Taylor. Then‚ Brannagan scored a brace in the second half‚ and Taylor netted the third after Lee fouled him. Oxford were on top in the second half‚ so the three points were worth the effort. The game was not without its moments of drama‚ with two goals being scored by the same player in less than two minutes. Embleton gave Sunderland the lead in the fourth minute‚ and Nathan Broadhead doubled the advantage in the 13th minute. Brannagan's second came after a good save from Marko Marosi‚ but Shrewsbury had a couple of chances to score‚ but were unable to convert.

Chris Andrew's low cross caused confusion in the back line

The result was a shock to the Shrews and one they were not prepared for‚ but the victory over the League Two side was well-earned. The keeper‚ Chris Andrew‚ was brilliant and the visitors deserved their third-place finish. But they lacked quality at the back and were unable to score. They conceded two goals in the first half and were dominated by the Sunderland defence.

Zak Jules' foul on Zak Jules

Reaction to Zak Jules' foul at the end of the first half was priceless‚ as the fans chanted for the referee to give a second yellow card. Despite this‚ it didn't matter as Shrewsbury took the lead with a second penalty when Daniel Udoh was brought down. Jules was sent off for the foul‚ and Clarke converted the spot-kick two minutes after the restart. Shrewsbury Town have been in good form lately. They've kept four clean sheets and have gone five games without defeat. They've also brought in loan striker Tyrese Fornah from Nottingham Forest to add some defensive qualities to their side. However‚ Shrewsbury struggled to create chances last time out. This should change. Shrewsbury's unbeaten run can be extended by beating Bolton Wanderers on Saturday. The result was a great game to watch. The first half ended goalless‚ but the second half was different. Sunderland were in the lead for much of the game and Shrewsbury Town had the better chances to take the lead. In the second half‚ Shrewsbury pushed for a winner‚ but were denied by a penalty in the 93rd minute from Luke Leahy.

Chris Maguire's penalty

Shrewsbury Town's victory over Sunderland was sealed with a late penalty from Chris Maguire. The goal was a brilliant individual effort from the former Swindon midfielder‚ who was in the box to take it. The defender was booked for a late challenge on Maguire‚ but the result did not matter as Town won the game 3-2 and Maguire got his second from the spot. The penalty came with an ensuing fracas in the area after a lunging challenge from the Lincoln keeper. Maguire slotted the spot-kick to open the scoring after 31 minutes‚ and was later sent off for a second caution for a foul on Carl Winchester. The penalty‚ which Maguire converted‚ was the last word in the game and the resulting celebrations were heartwarming. The penalty was controversial‚ but Maguire deserved it. He stepped up to the challenge and drew keeper David Patterson out of goal by slipping the ball under his boot on the far touchline. The resulting spot kick was a sublime finish into the roof of the net. A stunned Shrewsbury Town crowd reacted with astonishment and some great footballing reaction. The goalkeepers of both sides played well. Maguire and McLaughlin were excellent and Shrewsbury Town's back four remained solid despite a late Shrewsbury Town attack. The goalkeepers‚ meanwhile‚ included Ruiter‚ Matthews and Oviedo. The Shrewsbury defence was excellent and deserved a historic victory.

Chris Maguire's hat-trick

After the match‚ the euphoria was palpable. Maguire's first goal came from a corner‚ and his second came from a corner kick. A minute later‚ the defending champions found themselves in a commanding position. Maguire headed home a cross by Ben Davies. Then‚ Maguire headed home a header from O'Nien's cross. The match was won without any problems for Newcastle United‚ who managed to see out the game comfortably. The Sunderland fans have a right to be jealous of Chris Maguire. The midfielder spent three years at the club and was allowed to leave on a free transfer. In that time‚ he had become a regular first-team player. His first goal against the Maguires was the opener‚ which was celebrated in front of Sunderland head coach Lee Johnson. After Maguire's goal‚ Sunderland looked like they were going to get something out of this match. The Imps looked to have everything in hand but could not stop a cross on the right wing from reaching the box. A good run by Kwesi Appiah allowed him to steal between two centre-backs and head a goal past the visiting keeper. A point is vital for the Cobblers‚ who have yet to win a league game. The Cobblers were knocked out of the League Cup by Wycombe in the first round of the competition‚ so it is no surprise that they were out of the cup. After all‚ Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's team had suffered a disastrous campaign last time around and are adjusting.
