Match Previews

Preview: Aldershot Town (H)

17 September 2019

The Bees are back in action tonight as they welcome Aldershot Town to The Hive London.

Darren Currie’s side welcome the Shots off the back of a 1-0 victory over Maidenhead United on Saturday courtesy of a 66th minute Josh Walker winner.

The Opposition:

After initially facing relegation last season, the Shots were gifted a lifeline after the expulsion of Gateshead.

Aldershot will be looking to regain their Football League status in the near future after relegation from League Two in 2013.

However, they currently find themselves 20th on 11 points after clinching three victories so far this season, including two in their last five.

All three wins have come away from home and they will undoubtedly be hoping to add another three points on their travels tonight.

The Shots will be full of confidence after winning 2-1 away at Stockport County at the weekend in their most recent fixture.

Manager: Danny Searle

This season proves to be Danny Searle’s first as Shots manager after taking up the hot seat in May.

The 41-year-old spent the back end of last season in charge of relegated Braintree Town after a spell as Assistant Manager.

Searle was also a coach within the Academies at Chelsea, Charlton Athletic, Southend United and West Ham United.

Last Time Out:

Barnet came away with all three points in their last meeting with the Shots at The Hive London back in March.

The Bees won 2-0 after second half goals from Ephron Mason-Clark and Shaq Coulthirst ensured the win.

Top Scorer: Ethan Chislett

With three goals to his name, midfielder Ethan Chislett is currently the Shots’ top scorer.

He bagged his first of the season against Solihull Moors before clinching his second five games later away at Eastleigh. His third strike came in the following fixture as his side fell to a 2-1 home defeat against Barrow.

Connections:

Cheye Alexander joined the Bees in 2018 after spending three years with Aldershot, helping them reach the play-offs on two occasions.

Callum Reynolds captained the Shots during his two-year spell at the club. Signing from Boreham Wood, the defender made 90 appearances for the Hampshire side before arriving at the Hive this summer.

Andre Boucaud featured 13 times for the Shots after signing on loan from Peterborough United in 2005. His brief spell in Hampshire only lasted three months before he was recalled by his parent club.

New signing Alfie Pavey spent a short spell on loan with the Shots in 2016 whilst at Millwall.

Match Reports

Match Report: Barnet 2-0 Aldershot Town

17 September 2019

The Bees made it three wins on the trot as a superb second half showing was enough to secure the points against Aldershot Town.

After a cagey opening 45 minutes, two early second half strikes from Mason-Clark and Wes Fonguck gave Darren Currie’s men a comfortable cushion.

A solid defensive display meant it was two home clean sheets on the spin, in a confidence boosting victory at The Hive, London.

In the early exchanges Ricardo Santos made a superb block to deny Ethan Chislett as he struck just inside the area.

The Bees struggled to really get going in the opening 15 minutes, as the buoyant visitors started quickly following their win over Stockport in their previous match.

Midway through the half and it was Currie’s side who made the next opening, as Mason-Clark slipped in Fonguck but his shot was well saved by Mitch Walker. Seconds later it was Fonguck again but he couldn’t get the better of the Shots number one.

There was plenty of endeavour from the Bees but the final ball massively let them down in the opening 45, as they looked to build on back to back wins.

At the other end Shields’ effort was brilliantly blocked at the end of the half, as the visitors tried to assert themselves at the end of the half. 

That was the final opportunity of a half that lacked any cutting edge on a chilly autumn evening in North London.

Currie opted to bring on new signing Alfie Pavey at the break as he replaced Josh Walker. Just three minutes into the second half the Bees had the lead as Mason-Clark broke through and fired into the back of the net.

In response the Shots came inches away from an immediate response as Powell struck a decent free-kick from 30 yards out, leaving Loach scrambling across goal.

Just eight minutes later the Bees had a second of the evening, a whipped in ball was headed clear as far as Fonguck who curled an inch perfect strike into the top corner. It was superb strike and sent the Bee Army into delight after a fast start to second half.

With twenty minutes to go the Shots should have halved the deficit but Harrison Panayiotou slotted wide from six yards after the ball fell to him kindly.

The bar was rattled up the other end as Fonguck lifted the ball over Walker on the rebound, after Akinola broke into the area and saw his shot saved. The Bees were scintillating to watch at times in the second period, as their confidence grew following the goals.

J Taylor saw a long distance effort fly over the bar, as the Irishman looked to add the icing on the Bees cake.

The win means Currie’s men head to Halifax in good form as they will look to gain a positive result on the road against a promotion rival.

A further three points sees the Bees climb to fifth in the Vanarama National League, with still only one defeat to their name.
