IRON TEAM NEWS
Post-Oldham, Iron interim manager Tony Daws revealed both Kgosi Nthle and Rob Apter were enforced substituted from the game through cramp.
Aiden Marsh (foot), Liam Feeney & Jordan Hallam (hamstrings) will all miss out through injuries, but Colin Daniel (tendonitis) was back on the training pitch on Thursday.
The Shots were held to a 0-0 draw at home against Eastleigh on Tuesday, previously suffering a narrow 2-1 loss to Altrincham on Saturday.
Aldershot Town currently sit 22nd in the Vanarama National League after 12 games, with an emphatic 5-1 victory at home to FC Halifax Town the standout of their three victories so far.
The Hampshire-based side dropped into the English fifth tier in 2013, following a difficult period which saw the club placed into administration.
Back-to-back play-off campaigns between 2016-18 saw the Shots finish fifth on both occasions, however neither season saw them reach the Final, with a semi-final defeat at the hands of Tranmere Rovers in 2017.
Following two play-off campaigns, a 21st finish in the 2018-19 season could have seen the Shots demoted to the National League’s regional tiers, however Gateshead took their place due to financial difficulties and Aldershot were granted reprieve to stay in the National League.
