Elsewhere, Southport failed in their bid to win their second Conference Premier away game of the season when they went down 2-0 at Woking.

The Sandgrounders had the lion’s share of possession in the first half yet were lucky to go in level at the interval as Woking hit the woodwork no less than three times .

John O’Sullivan shot narrowly wide after a good run for the visitors but it was The Cards who came nearest with Joe McNerney, Kevin Betsy and John Goddard all being denied by the goalpost.

Ten minutes after the restart, Scott Randell finally found the net, heading in a cross from Josh Payne, and Keiran Murtagh made it 2-0 10 minutes from time.

Despite the defeat, Southport retained 20th place in the table, four points above the relegation zone, although Aldershot have a game in hand.

They must now look to continue their good home form when they face Macclesfield Town on Saturday.
