Aldershot 2-0 Burton Albion

First-half goals from Jermaine McGlashan and Luke Guttridge gave Aldershot a win over Burton Albion.

Burton, who scored six in their last away game at Barnet on Saturday, went behind when McGlashan headed home from six yards out.

Guttridge then doubled the lead with a stunning strike from the edge of the area.

Michael Rankine also went close for the Shots, while the visitors failed to create any real chances.

Their best effort came just after the hour mark when Guttridge handled on the edge of the area but Billy Kee slipped as he struck the ball and it hit the wall.


Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth told BBC Surrey:

"I am delighted for the players. They've really earnt it. In the first half we were magnificent and in the second we were professional.

"Could it have been more? Yes. I think we played some good stuff on the front foot, and created some good chances.

"We played how we train and that's pleasing. There's a lot of competition for places at the moment."
