In Pictures: Cobblers 2, Robins 3

9 December 2012

Check out the best images from this weekend's victory over Northampton Town.

Fight, spirit and a comeback to be proud of was on the menu for a Cheltenham side determined to keep up the pace in the promotion hunt.

In truth the game started horrendously for the Robins with Adebayo Akinfenwa scoring within a minute to give the hosts a lead. Ben Tozer's long throws were discussed ahead of the game as a very real threat and so it proved when one of the 'bombs' led to a Billy Jones own goal and 2-0 Northampton. Cheltenham suddenly clicked into action and it wasn't long before Darren Carter had grabbed a goal back following some decent work by Chris Zebroski. The forward rocked Sixfields minutes later when he headed a Billy Jones freekick into the bottom corner for the equaliser.

The second half was a much tighter affair and Cheltenham at times rode their luck with Akinfenwa hitting the bar for Northampton's best opportunity but it was substitute Darryl Duffy who grabbed all three points after he got onto the end of Carter's through ball and unleashed a superb strike for 3-2 and a deserved victory.
