Anichebe, Mulumbu hand Irvine winning West Brom start

Victor Anichebe and Youssouf Mulumbu struck for West Bromwich Albion in their 2-1 win over Shrewsbury.

New Baggies boss Alan Irvine oversaw a behind-closed-doors victory against Bury on Saturday but this was the first chance for Baggies' fans to see their new manager in the dugout.

West Brom, who were without new signing Joleon Lescott, England international goalkeeper Ben Foster, Gareth McAuley, Chris Brunt and James Morrison, took the lead on 12 minutes through Anichebe.

Cameron Gayle, released by West Brom at the end of last season, started in defence for the Shrews.
