Aldershot Town stunned Peter Taylor’s Wycombe by finally ending their unbeaten start to the season. Kirk Hudson put the Hampshire side 2-0 up, with two strikes in the first half. Angelo Balanta pulled one back with a powerful header before Daniel Hylton restored Aldershots two-goal advantage. Matty Phillips ensured a nail-biting finish with a thunderous effort, but the Shots fully deserved their three points.
Peter Taylor told the clubs website: “Nobody would have dreamt we would go 18 games unbeaten.
“I don’t think anyone is going to go 18 games unbeaten again, we’re certainly not, but we need to make sure we go on some good runs between now and the end of the season.”
Elsewhere on a day of headlines, Darren Anderton scored Bournemouth’s winner against Chester. It was a fairytale finish to the 36-year old’s career, and gave the south-coast side a 1-0 win.
Shrewsbury moved up to 2nd with a hard-fought win against 9-man Rotherham. The Millers went into the game on the back of a dreadful run, but played well until Drewe Broughton was sent-off for a second bookable offence. Then keeper David Stockdale was given a straight red for bringing down Kevin McIntyre, and Grant Holt slotted the penalty in.
The games at Darlington and Accrington were both called off due to the weather.
