Saturday 18th November 2017, 3pm
Victoria Park

In Opposition
Aldershot Town have bounced back in solid fashion after finishing 5th in the National League last term only to fall at the play-off semi-final hurdle to Tranmere Rovers.

Gary Waddock’s side are certainly easy on the eye this term too; they’ve scored 31 goals which is more than any other team in the division but they’re also up there with the leakiest defence as well.

The Shots have tasted defeat in three of their last four away games but they have found the net at least once in all but one of their last eleven games so they certainly need to be taken seriously.

They currently sit in the final play-off berth in the table but, such is the tight nature of the division, Pools can leapfrog their visitors with a win at The Vic this weekend.

One To Watch
Experienced front man Scott Rendell is one player Pools will need to keep a close eye on when Aldershot Town visit The Vic this weekend.

He hit the net an impressive 49 times in 83 appearances for Woking before joining The Shots last June and he brings EFL experience with the likes of Wycombe Wanderers and Oxford United.

Rendell has scored three goals for Town this term but remains a real threat so Craig Harrison will know he will need monitoring closely on Saturday.

Aldershot: WWDLLW

Head To Head
Saturday’s game will be the 57th competitive meeting between the two sides but the first since December 2004 when Pools ran out 5-1 winners in the FA Cup at Victoria Park.

Pools have a good record against The Shots having won on the last four occasions the teams have met and you have to look back to 1989 for Town’s last victory in the fixture – though that was a 6-1 thrashing at the Recreation Ground.

Entertainment is usually guaranteed with the sides producing 22 goals in their last five encounters – there’s also never been a goalless draw between them.

Referee
Matthew Donohue will be on the whistle for this weekend’s game as he takes charge of his second Pools match for the visit of Aldershot Town.

He was last in the middle for a Pools fixture when Craig Harrison’s men won 2-1 in dramatic fashion at Solihull Moors at the start of October.

Still in his first season on the National League list of referees, Donohue has overseen six fixtures this term with his most recent appointment coming at Tranmere Rovers for their 4-2 win over FC Halifax Town last month.

Live Coverage
Pools legend Brian Honour is back behind the mic this weekend when he joins Mark Simpson on Pools PlayerHD for full live online commentary of the game.

The duo will be on-air from 2.50pm to set the scene and then guide you through all the action as it unfolds as Craig Harrison’s men welcome Aldershot.

Cut Price Tickets For Saturday

8 Hours ago

The Club have introduced a special ticket offer for Saturday’s (18th November) game with Aldershot Town at Victoria Park (3pm Kick Off).

We’ve cut the price of match tickets by up to 50%, meaning supporters can now get in to see Craig Harrison’s men in action against The Shots for just £10 (adults), £5 (concessions) or £1 (Under 16s).

And, in a second layer to the offer, any supporter who takes advantage of the ticket savings for the Aldershot Town match, will also be able to snap up tickets for the fixture with Halifax Town on Tuesday 21st November (7,45pm Kick Off) at the same price*.

With Pools having been backed by some outstanding travelling support in our last three away fixtures, we’re looking to recreate that atmosphere back at Victoria Park.

And so we’ve slashed match ticket prices for the next two fixtures** to encourage as many supporters as possible to come along and get behind the team.

While any supporter wanting to take advantage of both ticket offers must purchase in advance directly from the Club Ticket Office, the cut-price Aldershot Town tickets will be available both in advance and on the day of the game.

Anyone who has already purchased tickets for the Aldershot Town fixture (or both fixtures) will receive a partial refund via the same payment method.

The ticket offer will be available to supporters from 10am on Tuesday 14th November.

*Both sets of tickets must be purchased together up to 4pm on Friday 17th November prior to the game with Aldershot Town.
** Halifax Town tickets cheaper when bought together with Aldershot Town tickets.
