Aldershot 1-2 Gillingham

Frank Nouble and Chris Whelpdale were on the scoresheet as Gillingham won at Aldershot.

On-loan Nouble put the visitors ahead early-on when he glanced home Danny Jackman's corner.

Whelpdale doubled the Gills' advantage when his speculative 30-yard attempt went past home keeper Jamie Young.

Scott Davies pulled one back for the Shots with a well-struck effort from Luke Gutteridge's pass but they were unable to force a late equaliser.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent:

We could have had more - Hessenthaler

"I thought the first-half was the most complete performance this season, with or without the ball. Had it been 4-0 at half time it would have been the right result.

"We had to stay strong second-half and we defended terrifically.

"We had opportunities to get the third goal so all in all our first-half performance won us the game."
