Andy Scott: Aldershot boss after defeat to Eastleigh

Aldershot Town boss Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

"I cannot believe we have lost because there was not a lot between the two sides especially in the first half. The conviction in the final third wasn't quite there and that was the only criticism.

"Second-half we pounded them with chance after chance, we could have had two nailed on penalties and we got one against us. It's not sour grapes, it's the truth and I think anyone watching today's game will wonder how we didn't get something from the match.

"We just said to the boys, let's not detract from from the performance and the fact is we are still performing well but we have some tired legs. There's a few voices in the crowd and I don't get it."
