In Pictures: Cobblers 1, Robins 1

26 October 2013

Check out the best images from this weekend's 1-1 draw away at Northampton Town.

Cheltenham Town had to settle for a point despite their dominance at Sixfields this weekend.

Northampton rarely threatened the Robins and it all started well for Mark Yates' squad when Byron Harrison pounced upon a Sam Deering pass and lashed his shot into the back of the net after just 9 minutes. The powerful striker could have had a second had he been able to divert a diving header past the goalkeeper following good work on the wing from Troy Brown. There were some strong individual performances but it was another defensive mistake that allowed Northampton striker Luke Norris to hit back minutes before half time against the run of play.

The Robins reacted well to that equaliser but found themselves up against a goalkeeper in good form between the sticks with Harrison, Gornell and Noble all being denied by the big shot stopper. The Cobblers held out despite heavy pressure and sealed a point but the performance will have pleased Mark Yates and a vocal travelling support.
