A brace from Jason Gilchrist and strikes from Josh Gillies, Bali Mumba and Nathan Lowe saw Shields – who were roared on by a crowd of over 3,200 – claim a vital three points.
But who were the key men? Scroll down and click through the pages as we dish out the player ratings:
5. Wouter Verstraaten - 8
A Rolls Royce of a performance at times. Didn't look as comfortable after Shaw's departure.
6. Phil Turnbull - 8
Used all of his experience to control the midfield without seeming to break sweat.
7. Josh Gillies - 8
A constant threat down the right in both halves. Two assistas and deserved his goal.
8. Robert Briggs - 7
Under-stated performance in the first half helped Shields dictate possession. Forced into an unfamiliar centre half role after Shaw's departure.
