Aldershot manager Gary Waddock heaped praise on forward Danny Hylton after the youngster came off the bench to inspire a remarkable second-half fightback in a 2-2 draw against Hereford.

The visitors were 2-0 up thanks to a double from Tristan Plummer, but Hylton began the comeback with a close-range header with five minutes remaining and the 20-year-old then turned provider, playing Marvin Morgan through to equalise with four minutes remaining.

Waddock said: "He had a good pre-season and possibly could have started the season. He could possibly consider himself a bit unlucky not to be starting more games."

He added: "But he's a good young lad with lots of potential and when he comes off the bench you know you are going to get something from him and he got us back into the game.

"We could have gone on to win it. John Grant had an opportunity, so did Marvin Morgan, so we were close to pulling off a 3-2 win.

"But you must never underestimate a point and especially when you are 2-0 down. So overall we are happy."
