Sullay Kaikai netted a brace to take his goalscoring exploits to four goals in three starts since returning to Shrewsbury Town as they extended their unbeaten run to eight matches by drawing 2-2 at Bury.
After slamming home a shot from outside the area on 16 minutes, the winger then put his side in front again on 33 minutes by twisting and turning inside the area after ex-Eagle Tom Soares had drawn the Shakers level.
However the Shrews were pegged back and had to settle for a point, which takes them eight clear of the League One relegation zone.
Deeper in trouble are Jonny Williams’ MK Dons. Despite the Welshman’s 76th minutes on the pitch he couldn’t help his temporary side slipping to a 2-1 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion and sliding into the Championship relegation zone in the process. The Dons now have eight games to salvage their season, having only won promotion to the second tier last term.
In League Two Leyton Orient moved into the play-off places after an own goal handed them a 1-0 home win against Morecambe. Jerome Binnom-Williams played the full 90 minutes while David Gregory remained on the bench, meanwhile Jake Gray’s Hartlepool United edged a little closer to safety thanks to a goalless draw at Crawley Town with the midfielder playing the whole match.
After being hospitalised last week, Ryan Inniss sat out Port Vale’s heavy 4-0 home defeat to Burton Albion, and in non-league Oliver Pain was involved in a six-goal thriller as the Metropolitan Police drew 3-3 with VCD Athletic.
