In Pictures: Tranmere 2, Robins 3

24 August 2014

Check out the best images from this weekend's impressive 3-2 win away at Tranmere Rovers.

The Robins recorded a superb comeback to beat Tranmere Rovers 3-2 at Prenton Park this weekend.

Cheltenham had the better chances throughout the first half but a lack of clinical finishing threatened to ruin the weekend with Tranmere capitalising on their chances with goals from both Eliot Richards and Marc Laird snatching a 2-0 lead at the break.

An ill Steve Elliott was withdrawn at half-time with Omari Sterling-James replacing him and the Football League debutant was a catalyst in what was an amazing turnaround for Cheltenham. The former Redditch midfielder struck the post with a fabulous diving header early on but soon after his blocked shot fell into the path of Matt Richards who slammed it into the back of the net from an angle to give his side hope. Just two minutes later and another another substitute made a massive impression with Koby Arthur smashing in an equaliser and the Robins were not finished there.

A third goal in six minutes grabbed the lead for the Robins. Matt Richards' curling backpost cross was met by the volley of debutant Jordan Wynter and Mark Yates watched on as his side comfortably held onto their 3-2 win and all three points.
