Things didn't start too well though. A cross from the right was not dealt with properly and the ball fell to Tim Sills to fire a low shot home after just 5 minutes.
It looked a case of here we go again but we battled hard and from a great Lee Boylan cross, Steve Burton scored his first Canvey goal with a powerful header on 16 minutes.
Aldershot though gradually began to take control. Danny made a great save from a deflected shot and Aldershot looked extremely dangerous on the break putting in a number of dangerous crosses.
Eventually another cross from the right caused havoc. Danny made a superb reaction block but the ball fell loose for Jake Robinson to thump home 6 minutes before half time.
Lee Boylan had looked very lively throughout and fizzed an effort wide but on the stroke of half time an excellent Ollie Berquez cross caused chaos and Lee fired home after a real scramble.
Canvey started the second half with real purpose and the intrioduction of Mario for the ineffective Tom Williamson did wonders. The game started to swing Canvey's way when Shots' David Lee was sent off for a second booking.
Mario was beginning to pull the strings in midfield and he had a couple of efforts on goal. Lee fired a free kick over and at the other end Jake Robinson cut in but fired his shot straight at Danny.
Jon Keeling came on for Midgers and suddenly Canvey were alive. Duffers was wreaking havoc down the left and his crosses were causing all sorts of problems. Keeling was going past people and a well struck shot was held well by the keeper. Duffers drove an effort wide, Burton volleyed over after a great cutback by Keeling and Mints hit the side netting when he should have scored.
The atmosphere was electric, the football superb and Canvey were really going for it. Aldershot held out and could have won but for a superb Danny save after one of their players hit a superb Marco Van Basten style effort.
Ollie was announced man of the match but moments later was sent off for a second booking. We held on for a deserved draw but in fairness probably deserved to win.
We dominated the second half and played some great football. Noto and Keeling definitely should have been on from the start. They scared the life out of the Shots defence!!
Duffers was outstanding, absolutely on fire. Burton showed some nice touches, whilst Lee was lively. Sedgy performed well in defence.
A great performance, full of skill and determination. A bit dissapointed with the crowd of 904. Thought we'd definitely get over a 1000 but think Shots may have brought a few less than usual. Only looked about 200 in the away end. Was still a great atmosphere, the best at Park Lane for a while and the last 20 minutes when we chasing a winner was really exhilerating.
Great game, great performance and a fine point. Good stuff Yellows!!
