A Ryan Lowe strike saw Sheffield Wednesday reach the third round of the FA Cup at the expense of Aldershot.

The former Bury man was lively throughout and could have given his side the lead earlier, but his shot deflected off Darren Jones.

Lowe was not denied after the break however, and he found the bottom corner after being teed up by Chris O'Grady.

The Shots' best chance fell to Adam Smith, but his drive was well saved by Richard O'Donnell.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Sheffield Wednesday manager Gary Megson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"We just want to keep winning all the time, regardless of what competition we're in.

"It's important that we keep Hillsborough as tight as it is and if we do ever lose a game at home, it's because the opposition are a good side and have played really well, not because we were lousy on the day.

"It's not a worry, it's a concern. We're creating a lot of opportunities to score and we're not taking enough of the ones that we are creating so we need to shape ourselves a little bit.

"They haven't really created a huge amount. They've got a few set pieces, especially early on. But they've never created anything where I've thought 'crikey we're in trouble here' apart from one occasion when it was more down to the fact that we defended really sloppily."

Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth told BBC Surrey:

"Possibly we could have done a little bit better to stop the goal. One lapse of concentration has cost us.

"I though we gave a great account of ourselves, especially in the first half. We passed the ball really well and the effort and work rate was excellent.

"We had two good chances, and their keeper made great saves. But it was always going to come down to defining moments."
