Shrewsbury played a goalless draw with Ipswich in their last home game of the season.
Matthew Pennington came close with an early header for the hosts in an opening period where the odds were slim.
It took 30 minutes for Ipswich to register a shot as Tottenham Loanee Troy Parrott pulled a save from Harry Burgoyne with the game feeling like a dead end-of-season rubber.
The best half-time chance went to 17-year-old Shrewsbury forward Tom Bloxham, who latched onto a Donald Love ball before being turned down by David Cornell.
There was a lack of goal-mouthing action in the second half, that is, until the last quarter of the game.
Parrott blazed before Daniel Udoh of Shrewsbury saw his head shave off the crossbar.
Then, as the two teams competed for a late winner, the game opened up and the ball fell to Ipswich skipper James Norwood in the box, but he shot over the crossbar.
