Aldershot striker Danny Hylton says hard work is the key to stopping their poor run of form.

The Shots have lost six of their last eight League Two games and are now just six points above the relegation zone.

Hylton told BBC Surrey: "We're not on a good run at the minute and the sooner we can start winning games the better.

"We're getting sucked nearer the bottom of the table and it's not easy to get out of it. We've got to pull our sleeves up."

The 22-year-old added: "When you're not winning games you've got to be mentally strong and stick together.

Hylton positive over goal drought

"We've got to work hard and start taking our chances and defending better.

"There's a good bunch of lads in the dressing room and we'll dig deep and I'm sure we'll pick up results."

The Shots have struggled for goals recently, having scored only once in their past seven games in all competitions.

Hylton, meanwhile, has not scored in 10 games since winning the League Two player of the month award for October.

"It's annoying when you don't score in one game," he continued.

"When you've gone 10 [since scoring] you find it hard to sleep at night because you're wondering when the drought is going to end.

"All I can do is keep getting in positions and work hard on training field, and one will fall for me."
