GOALS from Shane Cansdell-Sherriff and Mark Wright gave Shrewsbury their first win in four games as they got the better of promotion rivals Gillingham.
Cansdell-Sherriff struck midway through the first half before Wright wrapped up the win five minutes from time to stay just six points adrift of the automatic promotion spots.
But Shrews boss Graham Turner said he was still not atisfied despite the three points, maintaining his side should have won by a greater margin following their dominant display.
"I thought it was a comprehensive win. We did well and that should do the players' confidence a lot of good.
"It was an important three points but we should have scored more thea the two goals we managed.
"Goalscorers thrive on getting the ball into the back of the net but at the moment it isn't happening for our forwards.
"We were strong defensively though which is always pleasing."
Town took the lead on the half hour when Cansdell-Sherriff sent a rip-roaring volley beyond Ross Flitney as the Shrews protected their 20-match unbeaten home league run.
But they had to wait until late on to secure the points as Wright popped up to dispense with a poor Gillingham clearance from Jermaine Grandison's cross to settle supporters nerves and maintain their promotion push.
