Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon insists his side had plenty to be proud of, despite crashing out in the play-off semi-finals to Rotherham.

The Shots had a fine second half of the season to make the play-offs in just their second season back in the Football League but went down 3-0 on aggregate to the Millers.

"It's a celebration. We have just celebrated our season in the dressing room. The boys have done great we have never been this far before," said Dillon.

Although Rotherham keeper Andy Warrington was rarely tested throughout the two legs, Dillon felt his side should have made Wembley.

"Overall we played some decent football. It was a close contest but in the end a couple of mistakes have cost us.

"I don't think the right team went through, but I wouldn't take anything away from them.

"The first leg we had three chances and they had one and scored, here they have had two chances and it was two goals and that's the difference."
