Davies hands Shots~all three points


Davies powered home the winner just four minutes from time after Jackson had cancelled out Kirk Hudson’s opener by pouncing on a defensive mistake.

Gillingham had been reduced to 10 men in just the 13th minute when Mark McCammon was harshly dismissed for violent conduct on Shots’ goalkeeper Nikki Bull.

It was Gillingham who started the brighter and the visitors hit the post in the first half through Mark Bentley’s header.

Aldershot should have taken the lead through Hudson on the stroke of half-time but Simon King scrambled the ball clear however the forward made no mistake on 75 minutes when a fine one-two between Hudson and John Grant saw the 21-year-old power the ball into the bottom corner.

Jackson looked to have salvaged a draw for the plucky visitors after he capitalised on Ben Harding’s error and slotted home with just seven minutes to go, but Davies broke Gillingham hearts just three minutes later with his powerful low drive.
