In Pictures: Robins 1, Cobblers 1

2 February 2014

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

Another lead lost and another potential three points surrendered as Cheltenham drew 1-1 with Northampton this weekend.

The Robins got off to the perfect start with Jamie Cureton's first minute opener courtesy of Matt Duke's mistake following a lofty ball over the backline by Matt Richards. The visitors then hit the post minutes later through Ian Morris but from then on the Robins looked in control and really should have extended their lead with a number of decent chances on goal.

The second half started much like the same and Mark Yates watched on as his side battled the elements but a double substitution from new Northampton manager Chris Wilder turned the game on it's head. Northampton began to pile pressure on Cheltenham's backline and that pressure soon paid off when a hopeful cross was dropped in at the near post beyond the Robins defenders and Matty Blair was on hand to poke it past Scott Brown for the equaliser.

Both sides had chances late on but this one ended as a draw and an eight home draw of the season for the Robins.
