Tranmere Rovers 2-2 Aldershot Town

Tranmere lost ground at the top of the National League after Aldershot held them to a 2-2 draw.

Matt McClure stunned the hosts by flicking the Shots into a 1-0 lead after three minutes, but Tranmere hit back through Cole Stockton's sharp volley on the rebound nine minutes later.

Connor Jennings then fired Tranmere in front after being put clean through by James Norwood after 23 minutes, but Aldershot dug in and levelled up via Bernard Mensah five minutes before the interval.

Lois Maynard headed Liam Ridehalgh's free-kick wide as the hosts pushed late on, but they were unable to stop leaders Lincoln extending their advantage to five points.
