Middlesbrough 1 Shrewsbury Town 0: Emnes dashes brave Shrews’ hopes

Have your say

Middlesbrough did just enough to spare their FA Cup blushes as Marvin Emnes’s 40th-minute strike killed off brave League Two visitors Shrewsbury.

Shrewsbury created two great first-half chances, but Matt Richards and Lionel Ainsworth shot wide, before Emnes struck the only goal, his 11th of the season after great work from Malaury Martin.
