Despite Liverpool making a quick start to the second half, it was the visitors who edged ahead as Caoimhin Kelleher palmed David Edwards’ header towards Shaun Whalley, who headed in from close-range.

However, VAR intervened and disallowed the goal as a Shrewsbury player was ajudged to be offside in the build-up.

Liverpool took the lead in the most bizarre of circumstances as Williams’ long ball towards Elliott was intercepted by Ro-Shaun Williams, who headed the ball over his keeper and into the back of the net.
