Tahvon Campbell struck the bar just three minutes in, after Billy Chadwick had skewed the ball wide from close range moments earlier.

That Town forced four corners in the first 11 minutes was an indication of their early dominance – making up for lost time after kick-off was delayed due to long tailbacks on the M62 – but they failed to turn that into a lead, with Chadwick also hitting the bar with a swerving effort from the edge of the box.

Aldershot grew into the game after a slow start, with Mo Bettamer and Toby Edser both bringing saves from Sam Johnson as the contest evened out.

Bettamer had a good chance after the interval to put Aldershot ahead after a nice move from right to left, but Johnson reacted well to keep it out.

The Town keeper then tipped Josh Rees’ shot wide from distance.

Minutes after Aldershot’s celebrations were cut short by the offside flag, a superb through ball played in Allen, and he swept the ball across goal into the far corner from the right of the box, and sealed another precious three points.
