Aldershot Town suffered an early exit from the Johnstone Paint Trophy on Tuesday night, after a narrow defeat at the hands of debt ridden Plymouth Argyle at Home Park.

All of the goals came in the first half, when Paris Cowan-Hall put the hosts 1-0 up after just 30 seconds of play. The shots responded in tremendous fashion when Craig Reid engineered a stunning from inside the opposing box into the top left hand corner of the net. On the 30 minute mark, Argyle’s Andres Gurreiri rifled home in the bottom corner as Plymouth knocked Aldershot out of the Johnstone Paint Trophy.

Aldershot manager, Dean Holdsworth said “there were plenty of positives to take from the game”, and that the Shots “should have deserved more out of the game”.
