United's last away game of the season was the long trip to Shrewsbury for their Friday afternoon fixture.
And it turned into a frustrating day as they missed chances to pull clear having edged into the lead just after the break.
"It was 0-0 at half time but we'd created some good openings, and we felt it was only a matter of time," coach Eric Kinder said. "We took the lead through Max Kilsby, from a corner, and I thought we'd push on from there.
"Again, we could have, and we probably should have, but we just couldn't find a way to finish off the good work we were doing.
"They were awarded a penalty when Sam Fishburn misjudged a clearance in his own box and it popped up and hit his hand.
"We kept going, and Lewis Rooks had one disaollowed, but it just wasn't our day."
"We were still in with a chance of finishing top leading into this one, but that's gone now," he added. "That is what it is, but overall it's been a very good season.
"Five of our second years were missing today, but there are some very good signs looking forward.
"Max Kilsby, Ryan Carr, Jack Ellis and Josh Barnett were all excellent, and there were some other very good performances.
"We finish off with Walsall at home next week, and the lads can all feel really pleased with what they've done."
