Following Saturday’s 2-0 win over Bury, Jason Dodd praised the team’s ‘immense’ work rate shown by the team.

Speaking to the club’s official website Dodd said ‘The players were excellent. We know the players are good here and the workrate they gave in this match was immense… After the previous match versus Bury I thought the lads answered a few questions in this game.’

The duo of Jason Dodd and Paul Williams were in charge of the club for three and a half weeks following the departure of Gary Waddock and Martin Kuhl last month.

In that time the Shots picked up a win, a draw and two defeats. But, they did manage to keep two clean sheets, which hadn’t been done all season.

Dodd continued ‘It would have been disappointing to leave without winning the match today. It is pleasing to have beaten a good side and to have a second successive clean sheet too.’

He’s leaving to take on a role at Southampton’s academy on Monday, when Kevin Dillion is expected to be announced as the new manager of Aldershot Town. He concluded ‘The new manager is going to come in and will be happy because he is taking over a fantastic bunch of players… There is an element that would have liked to have carried on but is just wasn’t to be due to different circumstances. I start a new job on Monday and possibly this wasn’t the right time.’
