Shrewsbury had three defenders on target from set-pieces as they battled back from a goal down to boost their promotion bid with a 3-1 win at home to Hereford.
Hereford, seeking their third consecutive win over their opponents, went ahead after only five minutes when Leon Constantine easily shrugged off Graham Coughlan to lash a 15-yard drive past David Button.
The visitors looked vulnerable from set-plays though and four consecutive corners eventually resulted in Kelvin Langmead heading in from Craig Disley's cross.
The same player was again the provider in the 24th minute as his free-kick was nodded home by Shane Cansdell-Sherriff.
Hereford improved after the break and dominated the first 20 minutes of the second half but Shrewsbury went closest with a Jake Robinson header against the crossbar.
The home side put the result beyond doubt in the 79th minute when Coughlan grabbed the third goal from another corner.
