Aldershot continued their climb out of the League Two relegation zone with victory over Accrington.

Troy Brown sent them on their way by tapping in Kieron Cadogan's pin-point delivery at the far post.

The Shots missed chances through Peter Vincenti and Ben Herd but found a second goal in the final 10 minutes when Dani Lopez nodded in another Cadogan cross.

The win means Aldershot are now two points clear of the bottom two.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Aldershot Town manager Dean Holdsworth told BBC Surrey:

"The decision to play two strikers today was important for us to exploit Accrington's weakness and score goals. I thought we were dominant in the game.

"Some of our build-up play and the touches between the front pair were excellent and really good signs. They just lacked the finish.

"You look at that bench today and there were good options. We shored it up and I thought it was a good squad performance."
