Harrogate Town 4-1 Aldershot Town

Full-back Warren Burrell scored a hat-trick as Harrogate came from behind to beat Aldershot and close the gap on the the National League leaders.

Adam McDonnell opened the scoring for the visitors in the 14th minute but Harrogate levelled shortly after the half-hour mark when Burrell squeezed the ball in from close range after a goalmouth scramble.

Burrell added his second in the 54th minute to put Town ahead for the first time in the match when he headed in Joe Leesley's corner.

He then notched his third in the 70th minute when he headed in Leesley's free-kick.

Jack Muldoon added the gloss to the scoreline when he fired into the top corner in stoppage time.

The win kept third-placed Harrogate in touch with leaders Leyton Orient and second-placed Salford, who both lost on Saturday.
