TNS more than held their own against League Two opponents and could easily have won with a bit more sharpness in front of goal.
The Saints shaded the first-half possession and chances but had nothing to show for their efforts, with former Tranmere and Rushden front man Alex Hay firing wide and keeper Glyn Thompson saving from the feet of Michael Wilde.
Shrewsbury's best efforts came from Ceiran Lyng twice and David Edwards who sent his header just wide.
The half-time arrival of Steven Evans proved something of a disaster as he immediately conceded a set piece on the byline and then turned Jamie Tolley's low free-kick into his own net.
TNS stepped up the tempo to pressure the Shrews' goal and got their just reward on 73 minutes when John Lawless beat his man down the left to cross for sub Marc Lloyd Williams to head past Thompson.
In a frantic finale, Barry Hogan and Lloyd Williams saw shots saved and Scott Ruscoe curled a good effort just round the post from out wide, but it was a satisfactory performance from all concerned in which it was the visitors who were hanging on at the end.
