Video: Greg Docherty Gets His First Goal For Shrewsbury Town

Greg Docherty got his first goal for Shrewsbury Town in their 1-1 draw with Portsmouth at the weekend.

The Rangers midfielder surprisingly joined the English League One outfit on a season-long loan in the summer.

But Steven Gerrard arrived and had different plans for his midfield, meaning Docherty could leave to find first team games elsewhere.

And it’s Shrewsbury who get the services of one of Scotland’s best young midfielders for a season.

But now he’s got one in six after seizing on a bad mistake to give his side the lead:

Unfortunately for Docherty and Shrewsbury, they were unable to hold on to their lead and the game ended 1-1 after Brett Pittman’s late penalty equaliser.
