Tamworth 1-0 Aldershot Town

Tamworth secured a vital win against Aldershot in the Conference Premier relegation zone thanks to Matthew Barnes-Homer's solitary strike.

Brett Williams had the best two chances of the first half for the Lambs, but his low drive was kept out by Alan Martin and he later headed wide.

Barnes-Homer wrapped up victory when he volleyed home from close range.

The Shots offered little in reply, but Craig Stanley's header forced a save from goalkeeper Cameron Belford.

Victory moved Tamworth to within a point of Aldershot, and they are now five points adrift of safety with a game in hand over Southport.

Post-match: Aldershot manager Scott

"Well everything is disappointing and there were no positives to take out of it.

"There was a chance to beat a side that shouldn't be beating us and we've allowed them to because of certain individuals on the pitch.

"We are going to have change things and do them drastically otherwise we are going to lose touch. I'm disgusted with the performance, there was no desire."
