Aldershot manager Dean Holdsworth praised his side's professionalism after securing a 2-2 draw at Wycombe. Wycombe had looked set for a come-from-behind win, Danny Foster and Kevin Betsy cancelling out Luke Guttridge's early strike. John Halls was then the unlikely hero for the Shots, grabbing an equaliser 14 minutes from time. Holdsworth said: "Overall it was a pleasing performance. We were fantastic for 44 minutes; passed the ball, moved the ball, penetrated and really got what we deserved. "A little lapse of concentration cost us but we came back well and that shows our character. "At half-time I told the lads it was about professionalism; professionalism to kill a game off and shut up shop. There's still a lot more this team has to learn in that sense but I'm delighted that we came back and got something because we deserved at least a draw. "There aren't going to be any easy matches from now until the end of the season. You've got to show you've got the minerals to get through these games."
