Aldershot Town 2 - 0 Accrington Stanley

Jamie Hopkins reporting from the EBB Stadium

Aldershot Town made two changes from their FA Cup third round victory over Rotherham with Craig Reid replacing the suspended Danny Hylton and Dani Lopez coming in for Aaron Morris.
Accrington Stanley also made two changes to their starting line-up with Nicky Hunt and Will Hatfield replacing Pádraig Amond and Craig Linfield.
Former Southampton striker James Beattie also started for the visitors whilst new Shots recruit Oliver Risser began on the bench.
It was the visitors who made the brighter start to the contest with Lee Molyneux seeing plenty of the ball early on.
And the former Everton winger was first to test Shots keeper Jamie Young, but his curling free-kick was comfortably saved.
But it was the Shots who took the early lead against the run of play when Kieron Cadogan’s dangerous corner was tapped past away keeper Cameron Belford by the well-placed Troy Brown.
And the Shots came close to doubling their lead shortly after, Cadogan’s delivery once again causing problems , but this time there was no-one there to convert the opportunity.
The chances continued to come for the Shots with Anthony Tonkin’s accurate cross reaching the head of Peter Vincenti, but the midfielder could only glance the ball wide.
The pressure on the Accrington goal seemed relentless on the half-hour mark, this time Cadgon teed up Shots skipper Ben Herd just inside the area but his strike flew just over the crossbar.
Accrington then enjoyed a decent spell of possession in the Shots half but they were unable to create any real opportunities from a series of corners.
An ambitious 30-yard free-kick for Cadogan which was tipped over by Stanley keeper Belford, was the last opportunity of a first half which ended with the Shots deservedly leading 1-0.

Half-time: Shots 1 – 0 Accrington Stanley.

The Shots started the second half as they ended the first, Danny Rose's excellent ball through met Dani Lopez but his tame shot just inside the area was easily saved by Belford.
Beattie, who looked a frustrated figure in the first period, created his first opportunity of the match after 55 minutes when he met a Lawrence Wilson cross, but his header flew wide of the left-hand post.
The Shots then came close to doubling their lead when Sonny Bradley’s powerful header was cleared off the line by Molyneux as the Shots went on search for that all important second goal.
But sloppy defending from the Shots nearly gifted Beattie the opportunity to equalise, but his angled shot inside the area was hit straight at keeper Young.
With 20 minutes to play, Stanley midfielder Romauld Boco twisted and turned his way into space just outside the area but his shot was unable to test keeper Young as another half-chance for Stanley went begging.
Craig Reid looked to have been brought down in the penalty area soon after, but referee Andy Woolmer turned down the striker's appeal, much to the dismay of the Shots faithful.
With 10 minutes left, an excellent double save from Stanley keeper Belford prevented the Shots from making it 2-0.
Belford saved the initial shot from Reid and the follow-up from Lopez, to keep Stanley’s hopes of securing an unlikely point.
But the Shots then confirmed victory a minute later when Dani Lopez’s glancing header smashed into the top corner from another dangerous Cadogan free-kick.
And substitute Oliver Risser should have scored on his debut in injury time, but the midfielder mistimed his header after a quick counter-attack from Vincenti.
It wasn’t always pretty at times, but the Shots secured the three points they deserved and now have three wins on the bounce.
