Aldershot Town 0-0 Tranmere Rovers

Aldershot and Tranmere cancelled each other out in an entertaining draw at the Recreation Ground.

Rovers' Lee Vaughan had an angled shot deflected over, before Shots striker Charlie Walker's effort was saved by Scott Davies in a lively game.

Alfie Pavey thought he had scored on the hour for Aldershot, but was adjudged to be offside.

Both sides were able to extend their unbeaten runs, as Tranmere remain fourth in the National League table.

Aldershot Town boss Barry Smith told BBC Surrey:

"It was a great point at home against a team that was fourth in the league and who are vastly experienced team and that's why they in that position for a reason.

"So to get a clean sheet and come away with a point will take that. Hopefully that's progress.

"The team had been doing well defensively but mistakes had killed us. We have eliminated the mistakes and the boys work so hard as a whole team."
