Nuneaton Town 1-1 Aldershot Town

Sam Hatton's strike earned Aldershot a point at managerless Nuneaton.

Hatton fired in midway through the second half from just inside the area, after good work from Brett Williams.

The hosts had gone ahead through Andy Brown's header from Ryan Smith's cross, and Lee Fowler almost doubled the lead but his shot hit the bar.

Nuneaton's claims for handball against Josh Scott were dismissed while Tristan Plummer fired over for the visitors as neither side could find a winner.

Meanwhile, Boro have signed free agent Leon McSweeney on a short-term deal.

The much-travelled 30-year-old right-back is available for Tuesday's visit to Bristol Rovers.

Aldershot Town boss Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

Scott on Nuneaton v Aldershot

"There's not many decent words to say about the first half. It was appalling - lacking in energy, quality, work-rate - everything that we build our teams around wasn't there.

"We didn't play well, nowhere near acceptable. At half-time I told them in no uncertain terms that is not acceptable performance.

"To get a point, after playing as appalling as we did in the first half, is a point gained.

"It's another wake-up call for players, who do not understand this league, that you've got to be at it in every game."
