MATCH REPORT: Chorley 0 Aldershot Town 0

Aldershot town managed to maintain a clean sheet with a 0-0 draw against fellow league strugglers Chorley FC.

With an inconsistent form, the Shots were in need to return to North Hampshire with three points to escape the relegation zone.

Chris Holroyd caused trouble with multiple chances, whilst debutant Mo Bettamar was close to netting his first for the club.

Chorley started well, when Adam Blakeman aimed a left-footed curl into the box. Luckily, Max Hunt was on hand to confidently clear his shot. Soon after, Ethan Chislett raced down the left wing, but only managed to fire a shot over the bar.

Holroyd attempted another chance with a turned strike midway through the first half, forcing Mitch Walker into a crouched save.

Two more promising opportunities arose for the Shots during the game. The first on the stroke of half time when Santos edged close to the near-post and slid the ball across the goalmouth to Jacob Berekely-Agypong. However, the midfielder failed to get the vital tap in needed.

Chorley captain, Andy Teague, was replaced by Mark Ross soon after his shot on target. A corner from Blakeman found the head of Teague, who fired it over Walker’s bar.

Both Lewis Kinsella and Bettamar had a chance in the second half. Kinsella, who found the ball from 25-yards out, curled the ball towards the top corner, with it just skimming the crossbar.

Debutant Bettamar picked up the ball following a free-kick from Jack Powell, but the Barnet loanee headed it five yards wide.

Although the Shots secured a point away from home, they will be looking to secure all three this coming Tuesday when they face play-off chasers Dover Athletic.
