Rodman: Scores winner

Alex Rodman's first-half winner extended Aldershot Town's unbeaten run to seven matches, as they beat Bristol Rovers 1-0.

The winger struck in the 36th minute to net his first goal of the season, capitalising after a slip by Pirates defender Adam Virgo had allowed the Shots the chance to break on goal at the Memorial Stadium.

Michael Rankine took advantage to surge forward and, although Rovers defender Cian Bolger got in a tackle, the ball eventually broke to Rodman, who fired home a low shot from 12 yards.

It was the second away win in a row for the Shots, who turned in an impressive display and withstood all the home side could throw at them.

Chris Zebroski had a couple of first-half chances for the Pirates, but fired an angled shot from the corner of the 18-yard box across goal and saw keeper Ross Worner beat out another fierce attempt.

Rovers were furious when they had a 73rd-minute penalty appeal rejected. Matt Harrold appeared to be flattened by keeper Worner as he chased down a long clearance, but referee Tony Bates was unimpressed and the Shots withstood some later pressure to nail down their victory.
