Brown Under Pressure Ahead Of Vics Match

VICS could claim another managerial scalp if they beat Aldershot tomorrow.

Shots boss Terry Brown is under fire after his team lost at home to Crawley last week - their worst performance of the season' according to Brown.

Pauls Hart and Cook have already lost their jobs after defeats to Steve Burr's men this term.

The Vics manager has no new injury worries, with Mark Sale still struggling with a back problem.

Steve Payne and Chris Williams are out, but Ryan Brown and Phil Senior have recovered from illness. Gareth Griffiths is back in the squad after returning to training this week.

James Dean is finally available after suspension and ineligibility have left him kicking his heels on the sidelines since he signed from Clitheroe.

Stuart Elliott serves a one-match ban after picking up five bookings.

Aldershot will be without defender Andy Edwards after he broke his leg against Crawley.

But new boy Jonny Dixon is pushing for a starting spot in attack after signing from Wycombe last week.

Shots skipper Darren Barnard says the players are behind their boss.

"The pressure is on everyone, not just Terry," he said.

"We have a good opportunity to go to Northwich and get a win under our belts to help the gaffer."

Brown is under no illusions how important tomorrow's trip is.

A section of fans waited behind after the final whistle on Saturday to make their dissatisfaction clear to the manager.

"We just have to pull together and fight," said Barnard.
