Aldershot   1 - 0   Torquay

Highlights - Aldershot 1-0 Torquay

Aldershot 1-0 Torquay

Aldershot ended their nine-game winless run with a victory over Torquay.

Danny Stevens fired straight at Shots goalkeeper Jamie Young as the visitors had the best of the early chances.

Luke Guttridge hit the bar with a long-range effort, but did go on to score when he volleyed in a Peter Vincenti cross to put the home side ahead.

Craig Stanley rounded Young and fired at goal, only for Darren Jones to clear off the line and save the points for the home side.


Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth told BBC Surrey:
"At stages it has to be ugly. The players are improving on their knowledge and know-how.

"The players had to earn it tonight. We weren't under pressure and we weren't getting over-run.

"It was a good battle and a good challenge. This has given us a bit of confidence.

"We're still not where I want us to be but we're getting there. We're a decent side and a test for anybody."

Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:
"We're disappointed, we haven't played at our best and we've fallen a bit short.

"I thought in the first half we were controlling the game with the ball but we let ourselves down with the final pass.

"As the game wore on it looked like it had draw written all over it and in the end we've switched off from a corner and we've paid the price."
