Aristote Nsiala headed a late winner as League One leaders Shrewsbury overcame Fleetwood.The central defender crowned an impressive performance when he nodded home Shaun Whalley’s 89th-minute corner for his second goal of the season.Shrewsbury, the only unbeaten team in the Football League this season, have now won 11 and drawn four of their 15 matches.

Shrewsbury skipper Abu Ogogo had an early effort blocked before Whalley’s low shot was comfortably gathered by goalkeeper Alex Cairns.Alex Rodman then fired a half volley off target for the hosts before Shrewsbury ended the half strongly with Junior Brown twice going close.The left-back’s 20-yard drive was held by Cairns before the Fleetwood keeper stopped Brown’s header from Whalley’s corner.Kyle Dempsey fired wide for Fleetwood just after the restart before Shrewsbury twice called Cairns into action to save from Carlton Morris and then Whalley.Ogogo then went close to a breakthrough for the home side when he volleyed just wide before Paul Hurst’s table-toppers ensured they stayed top, two points clear of Wigan, with Nsiala’s decisive late goal.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsShrewsbury1Henderson13BoltonSubstituted forPayneat 72’minutes5Sadler22Nsiala12BrownSubstituted forBecklesat 76’minutes4Godfrey7Whalley8Ogogo20Nolan23Rodman9MorrisSubstituted forJohn-Lewisat 85’minutesSubstitutes6Beckles10Dodds12Gnahoua14John-Lewis15MacGillivray16Morris45PayneFleetwood21Cairns2CoyleBooked at 69mins5Eastham6Pond38CargillBooked at 40mins3Bell8Dempsey23SchwablSubstituted forHunterat 75’minutes4O’NeillSubstituted forGrantat 62’minutes10McAlenySubstituted forHiwula-Mayifuilaat 63’minutes44ColeSubstitutes1Neal7Hiwula-Mayifuila9Burns11Grant15Rodgers22Hunter28SowerbyReferee:Nick KinseleyAttendance:5,989Match StatsHome TeamShrewsburyAway TeamFleetwoodPossessionHome61%Away39%ShotsHome12Away1Shots on TargetHome7Away0CornersHome6Away2FoulsHome8Away11Live TextPosted at Match ends, Shrewsbury Town 1, Fleetwood Town 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+6′ Second Half ends, Shrewsbury Town 1, Fleetwood Town 0.Posted at 90’+5′ Corner, Shrewsbury Town.
