Darlington caretaker manager Craig Liddle admitted his side were guilty of some unnecessary errors resulting in a 2-1 defeat at home to Aldershot.

Liddle saw goals from Aaron Brown and Marvin Morgan give the Shots victory before Paul Arnison reduced the deficit late on.

"In the first half we gave a couple of stupid goals away and again we were caught out when giving away stupid set-pieces," Liddle said. "We were a lot better in the second half but I don't know if it was our performance or them taking their foot off the gas."

He added: "We played relaxed. Everyone seems to have accepted our fate and hopefully we can go to Shrewsbury on Saturday and play in a relaxed fashion again."

Macclesfield Town

Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson was furious over the penalty that Rotherham were awarded in his side`s 3-1 defeat in South Yorkshire.

The Silkmen looked like earning a point after Ben Wright cancelled out Danny Harrison's opener. However, Adam Le Fondre won a late penalty, which he converted, and Drewe Broughton hit a third two minutes later.

Simpson was furious with the penalty decision and said: "It's a fiasco. The linesman doesn't give it, the referee is five yards from it and he doesn't give anything. The linesman didn't flag. If our player has kicked him or stamped on him why hasn't he booked him or sent him off? It's a complete fiasco."

Accrington Stanley

Accrington manager John Coleman believed his side had an off day as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at home to Burton.

Shaun Harrad and Greg Pearson were both on the scoresheet without reply to give the Brewers a solid win. The defeat sees Stanley five points off the play-offs and has given them a tough task of keeping up with the top seven.

Coleman said: "That wasn't my Accrington team out there. We didn't play anywhere near like we can. We were a million miles from where we usually are and Burton ran out worthy winners."
