From Vital Stockport:
Paul Turnbull saved County as Paul Simpson’s men clawed their way back to a 2-2 draw against Aldershot Town at Edgeley Park today.
The unlikely saviour grabbed two late goals to cancel out a two goal deficit that was given to our hosts by Anthony Straker and Marvin Morgan.
In all honesty County barely deserved the point after a mediocre performance against a side backed by a support of around 100, if that. You get the feeling that Aldershot were planning a smash-and-grab akin to The Hatters’ 1-0 win over Oxford last weekend, and they did their best to waste as much time as possible and put as many men behind the ball as possible at all times.
Eventually, as the final ten minutes approached with the score at 0-2, it was down to the introduction of ex-Shrewsbury Town winger Jake Simpson and the heroic effort of the much-maligned Turnbull that we scraped our way back into the tie.
Simpson and Preston North End loanee Jamie Proctor, who played on the left-hand side, both stretched our visitors back-line and started to deliver decent balls into the box.
And as the 75 minute mark was hit, County’s number 4 got forward into the box and powered home a header, diverting in a wicked cross from Simpson.
The Cheadle End was finally given reason to cheer and shout the team on even more, and as we finally found our voice, ‘Bully’ had hauled us level with a pretty stunning chip over the Shots stopper Jamie Young, left stranded by the weight of the midfielder’s effort.
It could have been so different for County as Straker and Morgan put the away side 2-0 to the good with two really sloppy goals from our point of view. First, Morgan got in between ‘keeper Matt Glennon and skipper Danny Swailes to slide a ball across for his strike partner to smash home, and then the gangly Morgan got his name on the scoresheet with a low shot past the Hatters ‘keeper.
