Accrington Stanley saw off Shrewsbury Town thanks to Bobby Grant's 14th goal of the season despite being reduced to ten men.
The win sees Stanley record their 18th point out of a possible 21 as they went home from New Meadow with all three points.
Shrews' striker Jake Robinson should have put the home side ahead but side-footed wide after rounding goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis.
And Town were made to rue their missed chances when Grant fired in from close range after a mix-up between Kelvin Langmead and Shane Cansdell-Sherriff.
Shrewsbury shot-stopper David Button made several fine saves and the game was marred late on after Andrew Proctor was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the last ten minutes of the game. However Accrington held on for the win.
