Sheffield United striker Shaun Miller made a dream debut for Shrewsbury Town as he netted the winner against Bradford City.

Miller, who only arrived on loan before kick-off, popped up in stoppage time to pinch the winner.

The Bantams had taken the lead when Andrew Davies fired home from close range after 79 minutes.

But the Shrews turned the game on its head when Jon Taylor equalised within a minute, before Miller beat goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin to leave City shattered.

“It’s a great reaction when we are one 1-0 down and everyone is writing us off,” said Shrews manager Michael Jackson. “It’s appreciated and a credit to all the players’ efforts today.

“When the Bradford goal went in I thought here we go again, but we made changes, passed the ball better and to get level straight away was a great reaction from the players.

“Some very good positives today - they’ve all done great but probably sat a little deep in the second half, but it wasn’t an easy finish to win the game.

“All the players have given us something to think about ready for Tuesday, and I thought we have defended set-plays really well.”
