WHO ARE THE SHOTS PLAYING?
The Shots return to action at the EBB after picking up three superb points against Hartlepool last Saturday. Tommy Widdrington continued an impressive run of only losing once at home this season, and will be looking to extend it tomorrow night.
In the way are “the Magpies” Maidenhead United. The Magpies are sitting 22nd in the National League going into this fixture, but have lost just once in their last five, losing last time out on the road against Barnet.
Maidenhead got the better of Shots on the head to head last season, winning at the EBB and getting a point in the other fixture last season. Jake Hutchinson was on the scoresheet at York Road in a 1-1 draw, and Inih Effiong scored for the Shots in a 2-1 loss at the EBB.
The Shots last got the better of Maidenhead in National League action in 2021, as a Josh Rees hat trick and Reece Miller first half goal got Aldershot all the points in a 4-2 victory at York Road.
Maidenhead finished 20th in the National League last season, winning 13 games over the course of the 46 game season, ending the season 2 points clear the drop come the end of the campaign. The Magpies made it to the first round proper of the FA Cup last season, but were knocked out of the competition by Dagenham in the first round.
Maidenhead made it to the fifth round of the FA Trophy, but were knocked out by eventual winners Halifax on penalties.
23/2/4 SO FAR:
Maidenhead are currently 22nd in the National League, having picked up two wins against Dagenham and Dorking so far this season. The Magpies were four games without defeat before they lost to Barnet last time out, having gotten a point against Rochdale, Chesterfield and Oldham and beating Western-Super-Mare in the FA Cup.
Their victory against Western-Super-Mare set them up with a first round proper tie against Oxford United on the 4th November.
IN THE DUGOUT:
In charge of Maidenhead this season is former England international Alan Devonshire. The former midfielder played over 350 times for West Ham during his playing days, and had previously managed Maidenhead between 1996 and 2003. His first step into management came at Osterley, and then managed Brentford Women before he joined the Magpies for the first time. He then went on to manage Braintree and Hampton & Richmond, and rejoined Maidenhead in 2015, taking the side back into the National League and keeping them there since their promotion.
