Shrewsbury manager Micky Mellon says that he is "so proud" of his players after their 1-0 victory over Norwich City in the third round of the League Cup.

Shrewsbury manager Micky Mellon has said that he is "so proud" of his players after they recorded a 1-0 League Cup third-round victory over Championship side Norwich City.

The Shrews struck nine minutes after the break to register a famous victory as they knocked out a side two divisions above them at New Meadow.

"I'm so proud of my players," Mellon told BBC Sport after the win. "This was no smash and grab. We worked hard, played well and thoroughly deserved to win.

"We don't just lump it in the box. We get the ball down and knock it about and I don't remember our keeper having to make a save.

"I've said since I first came in that my first job was putting a smile on the fans' faces after a year of doom and gloom."

Fifty-two league places separate the two sides, with Norwich City currently second in the Championship and Shrewsbury lying sixth in League Two.
