Victory for the Shots was sealed when Rodak brought down Lafayette and he scored from the spot on 76 minutes.

Barry Smith: Aldershot boss on win over Welling

"You know it was a very scrappy game and Welling gave us a lot of problems in the first-half.

"I thought at half time we upped our levels and we caused them problems in the second half and I think we deserved to win the game.

"I've got confidence in the strikers and confidence in players who can score and it was a matter of time. Their keeper made some terrific saves, but you've got to keep believing like we've done this season."
