In Pictures: Robins 1, Dons 0

29 September 2013

Check out the best images from Cheltenham Town's first home league win of the 2013-14 season.

Jamie Cureton provided the magic needed to hand Cheltenham Town a first home league win of the 2013-14 season.

The Robins striker was introduced as a substitute in the second half by Mark Yates and he caught hold of long headed clearance from Troy Brown before chipping an effort over the head of Ross Worner to secure all three points in the 94th minute.

AFC Wimbledon were full of confidence ahead of the game as they sat high in the league table and the first half proved to be an even affair with both sides enjoying half chances in front of goal. The Robins stepped it up in the second half and came close through Terry Gornell, Byron Harrison and David Noble but it was Wimbledon who had the chance to draw first blood late on when the referee awarded a freekick inside the area for a pass back although this was wasted by Chris Arthur as he smashed the ball into the side netting. Up the other end Cheltenham Town were awarded a penalty by the referee for a push on Terry Gornell but Darren Drysdale reversed his decision minutes later and handed Wimbledon a freekick despite the baffled protests of the Robins.

In truth, Cheltenham Town deserved the win and Troy Brown's long clearing header handed substitute Jamie Cureton the opportunity he needed as he raced away from the tiring Wimbledon defence and chipped his shot over the head of Worner to grab all three points in the final minute of injury time.
