Paul Hurst’s new Shrewsbury side are riding the crest of a wave | Jeremy Alexander

Shropshire’s only league club are the Football League’s only unbeaten side, beating Scunthorpe 2-0 to stay top of League One by four points

Ten years ago, as Shrewsbury moved out of town after 97 years at Gay Meadow, they changed their crest too, losing two of its three loggerheads as well as the inscription “Floreat Salopia”. This season they restored them. Evidently three dunces are better than one. The crest is of a wave and Shrewsbury are flourishing, the Football League’s only unbeaten club and top of League One by four points after beating Scunthorpe United 2-0 at home on Saturday.

“It was a big win,” said Paul Hurst, their manager, not because it was their first by more than a goal but because The Iron had conceded only three before and not lost away. Hurst cuts the season into months and, after 10 points out of 12 in August, he said “to take 19 out of 21 is ridiculous”. Last season they did not reach 29 points until the end of January.

• Shrewsbury continue flying start, Exeter still top of League Two

Cardiff missed an opportunity to go to top of the Championship after a 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday. Gary Hooper headed the visitors in front and Neil Warnock’s side left it very late to find a way through the Owl’s obdurate defence. It was the 95th minute when Sol Bamba poked home after Lee Westwood spilt Lee Tomlin’s free-kick into the path of Nathaniel Mendez-Laing. Diogo Jota’s brace at the City Ground saw Wolves earn a 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest and leapfrog the Bluebirds into second. The Portuguese Under 21 scored either side of a Mustapha Carayol 30-yard stunner.
