Grimmer slipped a pass to Grant and the midfielder, on loan from Blackpool, smashed an unstoppable shot from 15 yards to the roof of the net.Shrewsbury made sure of the points with a second 15 minutes from time

Jermaine Grandison headed down Grant's corner and Collins fired in on the turn for his eighth goal of the season
