Cheltenham   1 - 2   Aldershot

Cheltenham vs. Aldershot

Cheltenham 1-2 Aldershot

Aldershot picked up a straightforward win over struggling Cheltenham.

Anthony Charles kept his head to stroke the Shots into the lead after the hosts, with only one win in 11 games, failed to clear a corner.

Peter Vincenti robbed a dithering Keith Lowe to break clear and round Robins keeper Scott Brown to make it 2-0.

The hosts pulled one back when Michael Pook's looping free-kick outfoxed Jamie Young but Steve Elliott blazed over to scupper any hopes of an unlikely point.


Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth told BBC Surrey:
"Absolutely marvellous. We've learnt together and we're growing as a group. The team spirit is spot on.

"We dug in at the end and Cheltenham pushed and pushed. It would have been terrible to come away with a draw after keeping them under wraps. I'm really pleased for the team and the travelling support.

"The belief is there, the ability is there and they're really enjoying it. They're learning. It was a great team performance."

Cheltenham boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"It was a nothing game, we had a little go in the last 10 minutes but that wasn't good enough, I apologise to everyone today.

"I'm sick of saying the same things about basics, desire, seeing danger and doing the right thing at the right times, we're not doing that as a group.

"We are lacking in experience. Perhaps we need to look at how we recruit players. The modern younger players have a lot to say for themselves and they think they know better."
