Ian Branfoot finally had something to smile about as Saint grabbed their first away point – but it was so nearly three. They turned a disastrous coca-cola cup exit at third division Shrewsbury into a promising performance.
Only a dramatic equalizer from Coventry’s Phil Bab stopped Saints as he toe-poked the ball to wrongfoot keeper Tim Flowers two minutes from time.
Ian Branfoot said “I thought we had done enough to win the game but it was heart wrenching in the end.”
Saints’ 21-year-old £250000 newcomer Simon Charlton, scored his first premier league goal, swooping in the 57th minute to head past keeper Jonathan Gould.
