Harry Panayiotou maintained his scoring streak as Aldershot beat Wealdstone 2-0 in the Vanarama National League.

Panayiotou made it three goals in four games with a well-struck 35th-minute shot after the ball had come off the head of defender Joseph Olowu.

Substitute Chike Kandi converted Jon Nouble’s cross in the fifth minute of stoppage time to seal victory and move the Shots to within six points of the play-off places.

Wealdstone’s Dennon Lewis had the ball in the net just before half-time but his effort was ruled out for offside.

Aldershot were the better team and Jermaine Anderson’s 30-yard effort flew just wide before Wealdstone goalkeeper Jake Askew denied Ricky Miller and George Fowler with fine stops.

Manager Stuart Maynard said his players had given everything during the match despite them ending up on the wrong side of the scoreline.

“The lads have given everything they’re just dead on their feet,” Maynard told the club Youtube channel.

“We were short on numbers today, Dennon’s played injured for us, Green has played injured and Wishart’s not played for god knows how long and he’s got through it. The lads have dug deep again today and they’ve given a good account of themselves today.

“The lads have given everything today, they’ve put their body’s on the line and I couldn’t ask for any more.”

Maynard also singled out 19-year-old goalkeeper Jake Askew for praise after full time.

“ I didn’t think both goalies had anything really to save except for the last 10 minutes and Jake has pulled of probably two or three great saves in the last 10 minutes when the lads literally are dead on their on their feet, so we can’t ask any more than that. We’ve got a week now, to prepare and to recover.”
