In Pictures: Pilgrims 1, Robins 1

26 January 2014

The best images from this weekend's 1-1 draw away at Plymouth Argyle.

A valuable point for Cheltenham Town but it could have been so much more for the Robins had they maintained a lead they worked so hard to gain.

A tense and cautious first half between the sides was edged by Mark Yates' Robins and they could have taken the lead had Kemar Roofe's effort had not struck the post and Argyle keeper McCormick not reacted well to his defender's poor clearance. Jamie Cureton also came close on a number of occasions but it was a stalemate at the break.

The second half offered much more entertainment for the 6,735 crowd and it was the Robins that were controlling the game soon after kick off. Numerous attacks were threatening to topple the Pilgrims with Kemar Roofe and Craig Braham-Barrett causing problems but it was Byron Harrison's tenth goal of the season that took the lead courtesy of a slight deflection. Mark Yates watched on as his side were seemingly cruising to all three points but a sloppy challenge from Matt Richards 20 yards from goal gave Plymouth the opportunity they needed and substitute Luke Young swiftly took it with a wonderful freekick.

The Pilgrims offered a late burst of energy in an attempt to appease the home crowd and Cheltenham could have arguably grabbed maximum points themselves but it ended as a draw and the Robins had ended their run of defeats.
