Shrewsbury 2-0 Chesterfield

Shrewsbury 2-0 Chesterfield

Manager Micky Mellon took charge of Shrewsbury this summer, and he opened his first game in charge with a two nil win over Chesterfield.

A goal in each half from both James Collins and Craig Curran gave us the perfect start to our game preparations for the coming season and the gaffer would've taken plenty of positives out of the 90 minute showing, especially given the number of additions he has made so far this summer.

It's probably too early in reality to read much into the game, but with Chesterfield taking the title in League Two last season, this could prove to be a good bench mark for us if we can show consistency now moving forward for the season properly, in terms of where we stand to our upcoming opposition.

One pleasing thing is that although Chesterfield has their own opportunities, we equally could've won by a greater margin.
