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.

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.
