Aldershot remain rooted to the bottom of League Two after they succumbed to defeat at mid-table Wycombe.

After an even first half, the hosts took the lead five minutes after the break when Matt McClure capitalised on a defensive slip to fire home.

Aldershot pressed and levelled through Craig Stanley's drilled effort on only his second start this season.

But McClure played in Joel Grant to score against his former side and secure three points for Wycombe.

Aldershot are now three points off safety following York's surprise win at play-off hopefuls Northampton.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wycombe player-manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"An equaliser from Aldershot with all their fans, I think other teams would have crumbled. Not this Wycombe, not my Wycombe.

"I thought the second goal was outstanding, Matt McClure's little ball in was fantastic.

"I thought we could have had four or five goals today and I think it's slowly turning - I'm so proud of the boys.

"People are probably looking at things saying 'Wycombe have nothing to play for'. How wrong they are going to be because we have everything to play for."

Aldershot Town manager Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

"I've never had a problem with their work rate. You could take one of those 1,000 fans watching on the pitch they would work hard.

"The consistency has been a problem over the games that it's very difficult to have the same performance week in, week out.

"As a defender you can't win the game but you can certainly do something to not lose it. To be honest, I am very disappointed."
