The New Meadow
Marcus Stewart's 83rd minute close range finish rescued a point Exeter and extended our unbeaten run to 7 games.
Matt Gill's first half penalty which crashed against the crossbar was City's only real chance until a well worked setpiece gave Stewart his fifth goal of the season and set off huge celebrations amongst the 300 or so travelling fans.
In a tale of two penalties, Grant Holt had slammed home his spot-kick just after the interval but the Shrews took their foot off the gas a little and Exeter slowly worked their way back into the match.
The point (that at full-time felt almost like a victory) keeps the Grecians above Shrewsbury who will be annoyed they couldn't hold on for three valuable points.
The away support was once again top-notch. To have 300 or so fans, most of whom travelled the 3hr 30mins drive from Exeter for a Tuesday night game, must be such a boost for the players. The way they all clapped the fans as soon as the emerged from the tunnel showed just how impressed they were with the turn out.
