‘Boro fell to their second successive 1-2 defeat of pre season to NPower League 2 opposition at the hands of Aldershot Town tonight.

Boss Spencer Day was forced into a change before kick off when ‘keeper Craig Bradshaw was injured in the warm up, Joe White deputising for the popular custodian.

Further injury woes followed when on 24 minutes Phil Page was forced out of play with a cut to his head.

The visitors took the lead on 41 minutes Jordan Roberts heading home from the edge of the area.

Marcus Moody resored parity with twenty minutes to go, rounding of an excellent team move, before Aldershot nicked it 8 minutes from time, the unfortunate Adam Bygrave deflecting the ball past sub goalkeeper Jamie Norris.

546 hardy souls braved the unseasonal conditions at Cherrywood Road.
