Aldershot Preview

17 August 2018

Town take on Aldershot on Saturday, with both sides having secured a first win of the season on Tuesday night.

While Town were seeing off Barnet at The CNG Stadium (highlights below), Aldershot recorded a 2-1 victory over Dagenham and Redbridge at The EBB Stadium.


Now in his third season in charge, former QPR and Republic of Ireland midfielder Gary Waddock guided his side to fifth and a Play-Off place last season, only to be eliminated by Ebbsfleet.

Before Tuesday night's first win in seven competitive matches, Aldershot had gone three games without a goal, though Town will need to keep an eye on Scott Rendell who hit double figures during 2017/18.

Town's current unbeaten run now stretches to seven matches, while Saturday's opponents have not lost any of their last six in normal time on home soil.

Waddock's side have been hit with injury at the heart of defence with George Fowler joining Captain Karleigh Osborne on the sidelines recently, both of whom are a doubt for Saturday.

Town, meanwhile, will be without long term absentees Mark Beck, Jordan Thewlis and Ryan Fallowfield for the first ever meeting between the clubs.
