The last meeting of the two teams resulted in a 2-0 win for the Hampshire side back in April, however the meeting before that was the scene of a seven goal thriller, with Aldershot coming out 4-3 victors. This season has seen the Shots start off poorly, losing their first 5 games before a change of fortune on Tuesday, which saw them beat National League new boys Southend United 3-2. The Stones game on Tuesday was a hardly fought one, but resulted in a slim 3-2 loss to Notts County, however the Stones can hold their heads up high in the manner of the defeat. Wealdstone sit in 17th place, whilst Aldershot are in 21st.
The Stones have a relatively clean bill of health, with the only injury being Connor Stevens, however he is not far off returning. A near-full squad will be available for the game against Aldershot Town.

WHO TO WATCH FOR?
Corie Andrews: The AFC Wimbledon loanee has been in great form for Aldershot, netting three in his last four. A highly rated member of the Dons setup, he has previous non-league experience, scoring multiple times for Kingstonian in another loan spell away from his parent club. With an eye for goal, a rapid turn of pace and an ability to make a nuisance, the forward will be a handful for the Stones back-line as the Shots make the short trip to Grosvenor Vale.
