Match ends, Aldershot Town 0, FC Halifax Town 1.
Halifax celebrated a win over in-form Aldershot at the Recreation Ground.
The Shaymen set their stall out from the word go to end their desperate run of 12 without a win, Danny Clarke warming the palms of Lewis Ward with a fierce shot.
Halifax took the lead after a fine piece of opportunism by Scott McManus.
The midfielder spotted that Ward was lackadaisical in possession and raced in on the Shots keeper, taking advantage of a heavy touch to prod into the net on 39 minutes.
In the second half Shots substitute Jake Gallagher did have the ball in the Halifax net, but was adjudged offside.
