Notts County keeper Bartosz Bialkowski fumbled into his own net to earn Shrewsbury Town a late equaliser in an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Meadow on Boxing Day.

Jon Taylor’s cross from the right took a deflection and Bialkowski could only help the ball across the line.

Town went in front on 19 minutes when Notts old boy Luke Rodgers reacted to Marvin Morgan’s knockdown.

County were quickly level with a goal claimed by Lee Hughes, before Jamal Campbell-Ryce stabbed home a rebound.

Alan Judge almost increased his side’s lead in the second half but was twice denied by home keeper Chris Weale before Shrewsbury’s late leveller to stretch their recent improved run to just one defeat in seven games,

Rodgers had been struggling with illness, while winger Taylor was also close to missing out with a hamstring injury suffered in the 2-2 draw at Bury.
