Mark Molesley's 20-yard strike earned Aldershot victory over Macclesfield and took the hosts back up to zero points.

The Shots, who were deducted 10 points for going into administration, had the better chances in the first half with Joe Oastler twice going close.

But they did not lead until 20 minutes after the break when Molesley crashed in a long-range shot via the crossbar.

Macclesfield almost grabbed a late equaliser when Peter Winn's volleyed effort hit the bar.

Aldershot manager Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

Post-match: Aldershot boss Andy Scott

"I've never felt so sweet to be on zero points!

"It's the first obstacle to get back psychologically. It was a messy game, we were patient in areas but we didn't have the tempo in the first half. We didn't play at our best today, but we got a decent result and a clean sheet.

"There is still loads to work on and everyone can see that. The consistency level with players is up and down. But we've got to help each other through - on their day they are really good players.

"If we can now pick up points away from home as well as here, we're going to be charging up the league."
