Wycombe recorded their fifth consecutive home league win as they downed a spirited Shrewsbury side 3-2 in an entertaining victory.
A fast-paced opening half yielded a 2-1 advantage for the Chairboys, but it was Shrewsbury who opened the scoring as early as the third minute - an Aaron Holloway header skipped off the turf to beat home goalkeeper David Stockdale's despairing dive.
Wycombe swiftly replied when Adam El-Abd expertly turned and fired a volley into the bottom corner in the 11th minute.

Just two minutes later the Shrews capitalised on a defensive mix-up which allowed Fejiri Okenabirhie to slot an effort inside Stockdale's far post.
