Aldershot Town goalkeeper Jamie Young believes the club's torrid run of form has helped to unite the side.

Shots extended their unbeaten spell to two games with a 0-0 draw against Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday, after a run of seven defeats in a row, during which they conceded 17 goals.

"We've been through a very tough time, including the staff who have always backed us," Young told BBC Surrey.

"Now we've got two positive results I think we can spring on from that."

Dean Holdsworth's side currently lie second from bottom of the Football League, but Young is confident the side can use recent displays to move up the table.

"Now we can kick on from this springboard we've generated," added the Brisbane-born keeper.

"There are some players in our team who haven't experienced the tougher side of football. That's when it's more important to stick in there and believe in what you're doing.

"It's a learning curve that they can take heart from."
