Substitute Matt Paterson's last-minute header gave 10-man Aldershot victory over Braintree.
The visitors went ahead when Kenny Davis scored from the spot after Adam Webster was fouled.
Brett Williams then prodded the ball home from Manny Oyeleke's ball into the box to draw level.
Aldershot had Jordan Roberts sent off for a second yellow card with 12 minutes left but Paterson pounced to nod in Adam Mekki's mis-hit shot.

Aldershot manager Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:
"It wasn't our best performance of the season, but it was a vital one. We kept going, we kept trying to win the game.
"I don't like sitting back, they only had one man up front. It's for them to score and it was an opportunity for us to get the ball in the net. The fans love it, and sometimes a little bit of drama like that is better than winning 5-1 on a Saturday.
"We'll take any win, and certainly given the circumstances with so many players out, that was a massive result, and huge credit to the players responding like they have, filling in positions and never moaning."
