Leading 2-1 and seemingly on course to add to their impressive 5-0 victory at Dover Athletic in midweek, the Shots bossed the second half but paid the penalty for missing three good chances that should have rapped up the points.

“In the second half we should have killed the game off and gone on to win by three or four.
“We missed three gilt-edged chances after Alfie had put us 2-1 up. We’d have deserved that win, but in the end haven’t got it. It’s very disappointing.”
