Matthew Richards scored a late stunner as Shrewsbury came from 2-0 down to maintain their unbeaten home record with a 2-2 draw against Oxford.

Richards drove home from 35 yards deep into stoppage-time as the Shrews stretched their unbeaten record at the Greenhous Meadow to 25 games, a run stretching back more than a year.

Oxford led 2-0 at the break but Shrewsbury showed real spirit to pick up a point, with the home side lifted once Mark Wright cracked in an unstoppable volley from Marvin Morgan's cross in the 54th minute.

Oxford were in complete control at the interval, with on-loan Southampton man Lee Holmes netting twice. Holmes fired Oxford in front after just 52 seconds when he drove a 20-yard shot to the bottom corner of the net after breaking from just inside the Shrewsbury half.

Wright's poor corner was then hammered downfield by Asa Hall at the near post and Oli Johnson burst clear to set up Holmes to lift his shot over advancing goalkeeper Chris Neal in the 37th minute.

In-between the goals, Asa Hall cracked a shot from the edge of the area with Shrewsbury creaking. But Graham Turner's men turned the tables after the restart to ensure the spoils were shared.
