Dartford 1-1 Aldershot Town

Striker Andy Pugh earned struggling Dartford a well-earned point as they came from behind at home to Aldershot Town in the Conference.

The hosts were a goal down midway through the first half when Josh Scott latched onto Brett Williams' cross.

Williams then almost doubled their lead when he forced keeper Jason Brown to parry away his long-range effort.

Pugh then notched a second-half leveller when he converted Harry Crawford's cross from the left wing.

Aldershot Town boss Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

Scott: Aldershot boss after Dartford draw

Obviously it is frustrating not to win today but the team we had at the end was patched up and we did struggle.

"We were encouraged by how we've played today and the most disappointing thing is that we made poor decisions.

"We have felt the illness in the camp this week and that hasn't helped.

"The side was unrecognisable from any side that we've put out."
