The Salop head coach pulled no punches during his post-match interview after Town’s goalless draw with Bristol Rovers, saying it was only a League One fixture ‘by title’.

Hurst has picked up a habit of speaking openly and honestly about his team’s performance after games since returning to the Shrewsbury Town dugout, with Monday being no different.
