Aldershot manager Andy Scott has urged his players to start believing in themselves after they stretched their unbeaten run to four games with a goalless draw at Chesterfield.

Having started his reign with three points at the weekend, Scott's second game in charge could have ended in another victory but for a goalline clearance which denied Sonny Bradley in stoppage time.

But Scott was still satisfied with a performance that keeps Aldershot two points above the drop zone in npower League Two.

He said: "This is a good side and there are some talented players here. But we have also got some players with heart. The blocks they were making to stop the ball going in the goal showed that and I'm absolutely delighted with them.

"That's four games unbeaten now and two clean sheets on the trot for me. They have got to start believing they are a good side because they've probably dominated 70 per cent of this game.

"There are things to work on but a lot of positives as well and in terms of a new manager coming in, they have responded really well. It's another point to the total and it builds more confidence.

"We said to them they have to believe in themselves because we do from what we've seen in the last few days."
