Crystal Palace academy graduate Sullay Kaikai is making a real name for himself whilst on loan at Shrewbury Town, having bagged another goal for the League One outfit last weekend.
Following what was a cagey opening 20 minutes, it was Sullay who opened the scoring at Greenhous Meadow, capitalising on a mistake from the Scunthorpe keeper by swivelling on the loose ball six yards from goal before smashing it into the roof of the net in nonchalant fashion.
The Shrews were to keep the lead until the 69th minute, when Kyle Wooton slotted home from inside the penalty area for the visitors, followed just nine minutes later by Paddy Madden who looked to have secured a complete turnaround for Scunthorpe after jinking one way and another inside the box before finding the back of the net.
Shortly after that, Sullay was replaced by Andrew Mangan, with the game looking to be slipping away from Shrewbury’s grasp in disappointing fashion after performing well for so long.
There was to be late drama though as Akpa-Akpro found a 90th minute equaliser for Micky Mellon’s side after a searching free-kick found its way into the bottom right-hand corner, sending the home fans into raptures. The draw leaves them nine points clear of the drop zone with 10 games left to play.
Let’s hope for a few more goals from Sullay in a stress-free end to the campaign for he and his teammates.
