Saturday's home defeat dropped Scott's Shots into the bottom two of League Two.

Jack Midson's fine chipped finish on 72 minutes proved the difference at the Recreation Ground - although Aldershot should have led in the opening stages when Craig Reid shot wide.

"Staying in this division is about being a team, it's not about individuals,"' said Scott.

"It's about being a group and believing in ourselves. We've lost our last two games by a single goal and before that we went six unbeaten.

"It's fine lines and when you're down the bottom you get punished for things. Now it's about sticking together and if we get pressure from elsewhere we'll deal with it as a group because we're stronger as a group.

"They're all big games now. I don't care what anyone says now, they're all big.

"It doesn't matter who we're playing against because every game could give us three points. We need points to stay up and we won't approach things any other way.

"The game was a bit of stalemate, I felt. We had a few good chances and an unbelievable chance in the first half.

"We made a mistake for their goal and when you make mistakes down the bottom of the table they cost you. It's a big blow."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
