Marcus Maddison effort enough as Peterborough shock Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury saw their unbeaten start to the season brought to an end by a moment of Marcus Maddison magic in a 1-0 defeat at Peterborough.
The League One leaders tasted defeat for the first time in their 16th outings of the campaign when being beaten by a Posh side collecting a first victory in six games.
The match was settled by a spectacular Maddison strike which may not to bettered all season at this level.
The attacking ace launched an astonishing 40-yard half-volley past Dean Henderson in the 14th minute to claim his fifth goal of the season.
Shrewsbury were denied a quick reply when Posh goalkeeper Jonathan Bond pulled off a full-stretch save to keep out Carlton Morris' header.
The visitors created little until Alex Rodman saw a late shot parried away by Bond before substitute Lennell John-Lewis' header was hacked off the line by Gwion Edwards.
But only a smart Henderson save to deny Jack Marriott and an Aristote Nsiala block to keep out Edwards' follow up prevented Posh from striking again in an exciting finish.
