Aldershot remain in the Conference Premier relegation zone despite fighting back from two goals down to draw with Nuneaton.

Gavin Cowan headed in Danny Sleath's free-kick and James Armson scored from the spot to put the visitors 2-0 up after Adam Webster fouled Dave Hibbert.

Jaydon Gibbs crossed for substitute Josh Scott to finish as the Shots responded in the second half.

And Martin Rowlands levelled after he collected Craig Stanley's pass.

It was the former QPR midfielder's first goal of the season, but Aldershot remain two points adrift of safety.

Post-match : Aldershot boss Andy Scott

Aldershot manager Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

"No-one was happy with the first half, but in all honesty when you take a step back there wasn't much between the two sides.

"I just wanted more urgency to our play so I made two changes, and we played with a desire to get back into the game and to win it.

"Lets not forget Nuneaton are fourth in the league and we've not picked up many points against teams high up in the league. But in the end I'm quite disappointed we haven't gone on to win it".
