Aldershot lost their fourth consecutive Johnstone’s Paint Trophy match on Tuesday night, as Danny Hylton missed the deciding penalty which sent the Shots crashing out after a 2-2 draw at Edgar Street.

Manager Gary Waddock had major injury worries, as a total of nine players sat the game out and as a result, only managed to name four substitutes.

Aldershot’s depleated side had made a bright start and took the lead after 14 minutes when Hylton laid the ball off for Kirk Hudson who hit it into the bottom corner.

Hereford came back into the game after this and were back on level terms in spectacular fashion when James Walker smashed an unstoppable shot into the top corner from 30 yards out just before half time.

The second half was end to end stuff, but it took until the 89th minute for the next goal as substitute Mathieu Manset managed to scramble home what appeared to be a late winner for the home side.

However, in the fourth minute of added on time a Louis Soares strike got Aldershot level and the match went to penalties.

Hereford had scored 4 of their 5 penalties and with the score at 4-3, Danny Hylton stepped up to take the final penalty. His effort rattled the bar and Hereford were through to the next round of the competition.
