In Pictures: Robins 2, Hartlepool 2

15 December 2013

Check out the images from this weekend's 2-2 draw at home to Hartlepool United.

Cheltenham Town dropped a two goal lead and could only claim a point at home to Hartlepool United this weekend.

Things had started so well for the Robins with Jermaine McGlashan's 4th minute opener setting the tone for the remainder of the first half. The scoreline was doubled through the devilish header of Kemar Roofe which claimed a first senior goal for the on loan youngster from West Bromwich Albion. Hartlepool weren't without their threats in the first period with Scott Brown denying Monkhouse on two occasions and the linesman's flag coming to the aid of Cheltenham when the visitors had thought they pulled a goal back.

It wasn't meant to be for Mark Yates' side however and their opponents soon had the hope they needed with goalkeeper Flinders thumping a long goal kick up the pitch landing perfectly for Johnathan Franks to sweep it past Brown. Hartlepool secured their comeback on 71 minutes through a delightful strike from that man Franks again and the Robins had to settle for a point despite being heavily in control early on in proceedings.
