Aldershot Town 0-2 Harrogate Town

Newcomers Harrogate extended their unbeaten start to life in the National League with a 2-0 win at Aldershot.

The visitors started brightly and created the first opportunity of the game after just six minutes when Joe Leesley's cross was half-cleared by George Fowler to George Thomson but his shot was well stopped by Jake Cole.

And Cole was called into action again eight minutes into the second half as he got his fingers to a 30-yard effort from Howe to tip it over the crossbar.

Harrogate got the goal they had been threatening in the 58th minute when Lewis Kinsella was robbed in possession and Dominic Knowles ran on to fire past Cole from an acute angle.

The Yorkshire outfit increased their lead after 63 minutes when Leesley's cross from the left was deflected into his own net by Kinsella.
