On this day in 2016, Town fought back from two goals down to beat Aldershot and boost their National League play-off hopes.

Charlie Walker's deflected free-kick put the hosts ahead, before Giorgio Rasulo's shot doubled the lead.

Town then took a 3-2 lead with goals from Padraig Amond, Omar Bogle and Nathan Arnold, before Rhys Browne fired in an equaliser for Aldershot.

But Jon Nolan's cross went over Shots keeper Phil Smith and into the net to earn the Mariners all three points.

The result kept Paul Hurst's side third in the table, seven points above sixth-placed Braintree.

Town: McKeown, Tait, Gowling, Nsiala, Robertson, Arnold, Nolan, Disley, Monkhouse (Bogle 46’), Amond (Clay 90’), Hoban (Stewart 46’).

Subs: Pearson, Bogle, Clay, Pittman, Stewart.
