Match ends, Braintree Town 1, Aldershot Town 0.
Dan Holman's early goal secured a comfortable win for Braintree and left struggling Aldershot in the Conference Premier relegation zone.
Holman struck his sixth goal in eight games when he poked home a long ball past goalkeeper Glenn Morris.
Braintree could have doubled their lead after the interval but Dan Sparkes' free-kick came back off the crossbar.
Craig Stanley and Brett Williams went closest for the Shots but they could not find an equaliser.
Aldershot Town boss Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:
"It's frustrating for everybody and the fans are frustrated because it's another ridiculous goal we have conceded, where it's been a long punt forward with indecision costing us.
"We didn't create as much as we liked but I felt we were in control of the game. In the second half we didn't have the ruthlessness in the box that makes the difference and we've conceded a poor goal.
"We can't dwell on this result too much and we've got two games at home.
"They dominated the game - the way they went about the tempo - and it was difficult."
