Sullay Kaikai continued his fine start to his latest stint at Shrewsbury Town this season by scoring in his second successive game in a 2-2 draw against Scunthorpe United last Saturday.
The winger, who also found the back of the net against Coventry City the previous Tuesday, put Town ahead on 21 minutes but after the Irons had turned things around to go 2-1 up, an injury-time equaliser from Jean-Louis Akpa-Akpro helped extend their unbeaten run to seven games and pull them nine points clear of the League One drop zone.
Also edging away from danger are Jake Gray’s Hartlepool United who moved eight points clear of League Two’s bottom two after a goalless draw against Newport County on Tuesday night.
The midfielder played his second game in three days, having grabbed the clinching goal in a 3-1 win against Dagenham and Redbridge at Victoria Park last Saturday with a fine strike from 20 yards to net his sixth for the Pools.
Back in League One Ryan Inniss was stretchered off after 36 minutes of Port Vale’s 3-2 win against Peterborough United after he landed awkwardly on his back and was coughing up blood, but after being rushed to hospital he was thankfully given the all-clear and returned home with his teammates, who are now just three points shy of a play-off place.
Also in that division David Gregory still awaits his Football League debut as he was an unused substitute in Leyton Orient’s 1-0 win at Oxford United, with Jerome Binnom-Williams playing the full 90 minutes.
In the Championship, Jonny Williams played the final seven minutes of MK Dons’ 1-1 draw with high-flying Hull City, and Oliver Pain featured once again for the Metropolitan Police as they lost 2-1 against Farnborough; however they sit comfortably in mid-table in the Ryman Premier Division.
