Match ends, Braintree Town 1, Aldershot Town 2.
Richard Brodie scored the winner as Aldershot came from a goal behind to win at Braintree.
The hosts led at the break thanks to Jordan Chiedozie's header from a Dan Sparkes cross.
The Shots pushed for an equaliser after the interval and got the goal they deserved when Charlie Harris fired in a 70th-minute volley.
Brodie won it for the visitors with four minutes remaining with a header from a Harris cross.
Aldershot boss Barry Smith told BBC Surrey:
"Delighted with the win because I thought we were off the pace in the first half and the players got criticism. So the pleasing thing for a manager is after taking the criticism they responded in the right way by keeping a clean sheet in the second half and scoring two goals.
"We want to win games and Braintree is a difficult place to come, we did have four strikers on at the end of the game but that's the only way to win games.
(On Charlie Harris) "We knew what he was capable of and we don't want to go overboard with him because he's a young lad. He'll have ups and downs but he's definitely shown he's more than capable of handling the National League."
