Ryan Glover played a key role as Aldershot Town extended to four games their unbeaten run in the National League with a dramatic 2-2 draw against Altrincham at the EBB Stadium on Saturday.
Glover, who was the programme cover star, supplied the assist for Mohamad Sylla to put the Shots 2-0 in front five minutes before the interval.
The 21-year-old cleverly feinted to take a shot and created space for himself, allowing him to tee up Sylla whose low curling effort found the bottom corner of the net.
It was Glover’s third assist after setting up two goals against Bromley on his debut, the midfielder having started in last month's wins against Grimsby, Torquay and King’s Lynn.
Earlier, Alfy Whittingham had opened the scoring for Mark Molesley’s team, his third goal in his past four games.
Toby Mullarkey halved the arrears on the stroke of half-time before Glover went close to marking his eighth appearance for the Shots with a goal early in the second half.
After Corie Andrews had sent Alfie Saunders scampering down the wing, his cross was met by Glover whose acrobatic attempt flew narrowly wide of the target.
Glover was replaced by Mikael Ndjoli midway through the second half before Altrincham levelled in the dying seconds when Ryan Colclough’s hopeful cross eluded everyone and sailed past Shots goalkeeper Laurie Walker.

Euan Pollock turned in a lively display after coming off the bench in Truro City’s 3-1 defeat against high-flying Chesham United at the Meadow.
Pollock made his 16th appearance for the White Tigers when he replaced Ollie Tomlinson at half-time and as the visitors trailed 3-0.
Two penalties from Bradley Clayton sandwiched a well-taken goal from Zak Joseph as the Generals took command in the first half.
A double substitution at the interval saw Pollock and Ryan Dickson come on, the changes leading to an improved second-half showing from Truro.
Pollock had a powerful half-volley blocked and gave the Chesham defence plenty to ponder, Tyler Harvey grabbing their consolation late on.
The 19-year-old will be hoping for more game time when Truro host Tiverton Town at Bolitho Park on Tuesday (7.45pm).
Jake Scrimshaw will be hoping to make his 18th appearance for Scunthorpe United when they face fellow League Two strugglers Stevenage at Broadhall Way on Tuesday (7.45pm kick-off).
