Aldershot gained a valuable point in their battle against relegation following a 0-0 stalemate at draw specialists York.

The visitors were the first side to register an attempt on goal in a quiet opening with Kieron Cadogan's tame strike proving comfortable for Michael Ingham.

The Minstermen had threatened very little in the first half until Michael Potts brought a save out of Jamie Young on the cusp of half time. The midfielder collected Matty Blair's header before seeing his dipping volley tipped wide by the Shots goalkeeper.

With time running out, Aldershot had Young to thank as he produced a smart save down to his left from Potts. A positive run down the left by Blair started the move before he once again teamed up with his fellow midfielder who brought the best out of Young.

Aldershot top scorer Craig Reid then had the chance to win all the points for his side late on but he could only blaze over the bar after substitute Michael Rankine set him up.
