Shawcross struck from a set-piece in victory over Crystal Palace.
He explained: "My goal was a bit lucky. Huthy's won a tackle, it's dropped to me, I've swivelled and it's gone in the corner.
"I don't think you can discard set-pieces because they've been such a massive part of our game. You can get so many goals from them.
"It's nice to be one ahead of Huthy in the goal charts, too. We have a bit of friendly rivalry, so I'm off to a good start."
