Team News

Form Guide

The Wood are now unbeaten in four matches, following the win over Bromley.

Garrard and his side came back from a goal down to beat Bromley 2-1, with goals from Gozie Ugwu and Justin Shaibu.

Shaibu has now scored three goals in his last four matches and will be looking to add to that tally against The Shots.

The victory leaves the Wood in 11th place in the National League, on 25-points.

Managed by 56-year-old Gary Waddock, Aldershot Town sit 16th in the National League table, on 20 points.

They lost 3-0 to Gateshead in their last match away from home, but beat Eastleigh in the match prior 2-1.

One to Watch – Lewis Kinsella

The only player in the Shots’ side to have featured in all of their league matches this campaign.

The marauding left-back is key for Aldershot both in defence and attack and has the end-product to match.

Kinsella came through Arsenal’s academy before moving to Aston Villa in 2011, where he enjoyed time on loan at Luton Town and Kidderminster Harriers.

He has since played for Colchester United and originally joined Aldershot on loan, before making the move permanent.

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“I think that Gary Waddock is one of the best managers outside of the Football League, with what he has achieved at Aldershot in the last two years and the way that they play.

“If you can marry up the way that they play, with results, then he is the Barcelona/Man City of the National League.

“We have to set up a game plan against them because they play a very expansive game of football and they make the pitch very big.

“I know they have gone and gotten beaten 3-0 against Gateshead, so they have got a journey back south where they will be upset.

“I can imagine that they will want to put some wrongs right on Tuesday evening and it is our job to make sure that we continue the form that we are in.”
