FC Halifax Town 4-0 Aldershot Town

Halifax won 4-0 for the second match in a row as they thrashed Aldershot Town to maintain an unbeaten home record.

Lee Gregory opened the scoring from a long throw for his eighth goal in six matches and turned provider for Adam Smith minutes later.

Gregory then set up a third before the break for Scott McManus before Marc Roberts headed in a second half free-kick to complete the rout.

The Shots rarely threatened and have taken one point in their last four.

Andy Scott: Aldershot Town boss after Halifax defeat

"We didn't cope with their physical dominance and again, set-pieces have cost us. The most disappointing thing for me was that we conceded a goal and then conceded two more in quick succession and that shows a lack of mental strength.

"They had just more belief in what they were doing, more than us and that's very disappointing and hard to take. They acted like men and played like men and we were like lambs to the slaughter.

"The fact we got rid of the 10 points probably too early had exceeded our expectations and all of sudden you are managing expectations. We said at the beginning of the season that we have a side that is playing well. We will be ok."
