The Silk­men looked to re­spond ten min­utes later, as Askey’s side were awarded a dan­ger­ous free-kick 16 yards from the right of the goal fol­low­ing Browne be­ing brought down.

But the theme of the home side wast­ing good op­por­tu­ni­ties con­tin­ued as Luke Sum­mer­field’s ball into the box was cleared com­fort­ably by the Shots de­fence.

How­ever, seven min­utes from time Alder­shot put the game to bed as Matt McClure grabbed his sev­enth of the sea­son as the striker showed his striker’s in­stinct.

The for­ward was there to pounce af­ter Flin­ders par­ried away Jake Gal- lagher’s shot and tucked the ball away con­vinc­ingly, to seal all three points for the away side.

De­spite some late chances for the Silk­men, it was too lit­tle too late. Askey’s side can take heart from the fact they still have games in hand on their ri­vals, and they will look to bounce back at the week­end against Bore­ham Wood.
