Altrincham 1-0 Aldershot Town

Chris Barker
Chris Barker joined Aldershot in summer 2013 after leaving Southend

An own goal from Aldershot caretaker player-manager Chris Barker gifted Altrincham their fourth straight win.

It was the 34-year-old's first game in temporary charge of the Shots following January's sacking of Andy Scott.

Barker deflected in James Lawrie's effort from a wide angle as Altrincham finally broke the deadlock in a game they had dominated.

The result leaves Altrincham safe in mid-table, while five defeats in a row leave Aldershot close to the drop zone.

Barker on Altrincham v Aldershot

Aldershot Town caretaker Chris Barker told BBC Surrey:

"It wasn't brilliant but we came here as an organisation and we've done the shape for the last four or five days and this is what we've all worked on.

"We have to stay together and we now have three home games out of four so hopefully the fans will get behind us and hopefully we'll climb the table.

"I thought the three boys who came played well, I crossed the ball to Josh (Scott) and if that goes in 1-1, everybody is happy but we have to carry on and the results has gone against us today. We go again Monday."
