Scott only arrived on Friday after the club parted company with Dean Holdsworth and things went perfectly to plan, with Hylton putting the hosts ahead after 38 minutes before Fleetwood capitulated after the break with both Jamie McGuire and Alan Goodall seeing red.

Goodall's offence was a professional foul in the penalty area and although Craig Reid's spot-kick was saved, Hylton made sure of the points with his second six minutes from time, much to the delight of Scott.

"It was full of incident and excitement and that's what people want to come and watch," said the new Shots boss.

"The lads gave everything that they could, got a fantastic result and it could have been more convincing in the end.

"We played well 11 against 11. Obviously I only came in on Friday so for my first game I'm absolutely delighted.

"We made a real point at half-time that we want to get the game by the throat, kill the game off and score more goals.

"We played the majority of the first half in their half and created chances and got our momentum up."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
