Aldershot 2-1 Woking

Aldershot moved to minus-three points as goals from Matt Paterson and Brett Williams gave them victory over Woking.

The Shots made the perfect start, scoring after 21 seconds as Paterson fired home with his left foot after capitalising on Woking hesitation.

Paterson then set up his side's second as he crossed for Williams to head home at the near post.

Glenn Morris fouled Woking's Gavin Williams, who converted the resulting penalty, but the home side held on.


Aldershot Town manager Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

"It was important, after the set-back on Saturday, that we responded in the right fashion and in the first half the way we went about it was fantastic and they couldn't cope with it.

"Understandably legs got tired and we were out on our feet from 60 minutes. It showed the heart and the desire of the players to withstand everything.

"We said that you can't expect the crowd to lift us, we've got to lift them. We were up for it and this means as much to us as it does to the fans."

Woking assistant manager Steve Thompson told BBC Surrey:

"Their heads never dropped but I don't think we created a lot and we've got to create more throughout the whole game, not just the second half.

"Obviously we're very disappointed in that defending in the first 20 minutes.

"Our partnership at the back was new because Jack Payne was out but, to be fair, I thought Mike Cestor came through the game quite well.

"I don't think we can take any team lightly at the moment. You don't win games on possession you win game on a cutting edge."
