In Pictures: Robins 0, Coventry 2

24 July 2013

Check out the best images from Tuesday's 2-0 pre-season loss versus Coventry.

Cheltenham's 100% pre-season record came to an end with League One side Coventry winning 2-0.

The Sky Blues took the lead through former Swindon striker Leon Clarke when his 20 yard curling strike left Scott Brown with little chance of a save on 36 minutes. It was a shame for Brown because Cheltenham's number one had made several very good saves beforehand. Cheltenham had their chances to score with a McGlashan cross inches away from a striker's touch and Craig Braham-Barret's cross come shot inches over the bar.

The second half was disrupted with a number of substitutions and Coventry doubled the score on 73 minutes when full back Cyrus Christie thundered down the wing past Kotwica and smashed the ball in past Brown. There were plenty of positives for the Robins with impressive performances from Troy Brown, Matt Richards, Terry Gornell and Zack Kotwica but they now face a sterner test when Premier League side Cardiff City come to town at the weekend.
