Aldershot Town 2-2 Forest Green Rovers

Relegation-threatened Aldershot shared four goals in six second-half minutes with Forest Green as each side earned a point from this Conference encounter.

Neither side was able to create any clear-cut first half chances before James Norwood turned in Lee Hughes's cross to put the visitors ahead.

Adam Mekki levelled things up with a neat finish before Bradley Bubb's close-range effort put the Shots ahead.

But Hughes finished from six yards to level the match again.

Aldershot move out of the relegation zone on goal difference, while Forest Green lie in 15th place.

"It looked like two teams who hadn't played for a while, to be honest. There were a lot of mistakes, [it was] end to end, so I think it was a good point, given the fact we've been off for a while.

"After being ahead, we'd have liked three [points], but the second goal was a ricochet and it fell to the one man (Lee Hughes) who's always scored goals wherever he's been.

"The pitch was very heavy tonight - I think had there been rain before the game it could've been in doubt - and it's not conducive to good football."

"The conditions were very tough but I thought we showed a lot of character.

"I thought we were the better side and that was a good point for us.

"We had some good chances although we weren't clinical enough in the first half.

"But I can't fault the lads at all as their effort was fantastic."
