Luke Summerfield's header on the stroke of half-time earned relieved Shrewsbury only a fourth win of the season, with the three points enough to lift Graham Turner's men out of the League One relegation zone.

But Davis was left bitterly disappointed that his side's strong penalty appeals shortly before the goal were rejected, on-loan Fulham striker Lauri Dalla Valle appearing to be barged over in a congested area.

"I felt we should have had a penalty," Davis said. "It was an absolute stonewaller. You won't get any more stonewall than that and it was just five minutes before they scored.

"That should have been given and I spoke to the referee about it and he said it wasn't. Everybody else in the ground thought it was apart from him."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
