Aldershot 1, Spurs XI 3

Our Spurs XI team enjoyed a comfortable win against Conference champions Aldershot Town on Tuesday night.

The damage was done in the first half at the Recreation Ground.

A bright start was rewarded with only eight minutes on the clock when Tomas Pekhart was found wide by Danny Rose and the Czech striker crossed low for David Hutton to sweep home in style.

Pekhart had only a short time to wait to get on the scoresheet himself when home keeper Nikki Bull found John Bostock's drive too hot to handle and Pekhart tapped home the rebound.

The third goal followed on the half-hour with the lively Andy Barcham drilling past Bull from the edge of the area.

Aldershot didn't lose heart and responded when Danny Hylton skipped around David Button only to strike the upright from a tight angle.

A number of substitutions affected the flow of the game in the second half and it took until past the hour mark for the first shot of note as Louie Soares hit his effort straight at Button.

Hutton and Bostock went close before the home side bagged a consolation goal, Hylton capitalising when Button failed to gather in Jumo Thomas' deep cross, enabling the striker to fire home from close range.
