Brentford 1 Aldershot Town 1

It was honours even at Griffin Park in this FA Cup 1st Round tie and the sides will meet again at the EBB Stadium in ten days time.

Wade Small followed up his midweek goal at Hereford with another excellent strike to put Shots ahead in the 12th minute, only for Bees striker Charlie Mcdonald to head home an equaliser just seven minutes later. 

Aldershot finished the match the stronger and only the woodwork denied them what would have been a thoroughly deserved victory over their League One opponents. 

Small, Aaron Morris and Jermaine McGlashan all shone but in truth, it was an excellent team performance and manager Kevin Dillon will be delighted with both the result and the extra revenue that the replay will generate.
