Aldershot Town 2-0 Alfreton Town

Aldershot bounced back from their midweek defeat at Dover to secure only their second win in eight matches.

Sam Hatton fired the Shots into the lead with a low free-kick after Alfreton's Luke Graham had fouled Brett Williams outside the box.

Dan Bradley wasted a chance to equalise, heading over when unmarked six yards out.

Jaydon Gibbs wrapped up the win for the home side, rifling in a right-footed effort, as Aldershot rise to 14th.

Aldershot Town boss Andy Scott told BBC Radio Surrey:

Scott on Aldershot v Alfreton

"It was a good clean sheet and a good win. We scored two good goals and we created quite a few chances to wrap the game up.

"We threatened the opposition and the team worked extremely hard and they showed that they were stung by the criticism on Tuesday night and rightly so. Today was a response.

"I'm delighted for everyone. We made a few changes to freshen it up a little bit and that worked so that was great that players who have been on the sidelines have made an impact."
