In Pictures: Robins 2, Bury 1

2 March 2014

Check out the best images from Cheltenham Town's 2-1 victory over Bury in Sky Bet League 2.

It hasn't been often this season that the home supporters could walk away happy from Whaddon Road, but they did this weekend.

A 2-1 victory for the Robins secured a vital three points which ensured Mark Yates' men wouldn't be dragged into the swirling vortex that is the 2013-14 relegation battle. There's still a long way to go but Cheltenham's grit and determination won the day as well as finished from Vincent and Harrison.

The game began with Bury on top. The Shakers had not lost a game in ten matches and masses of possession instantly predicted a long afternoon for the Robins and they soon took the lead when Nardiello swept past Elliott to feed Clive Platt at the near post. That lead however last no more than 2 minutes as a resurgent Ashley Vincent swept an effort past Jensen in the Bury goal to level the scores.

The Shakers to their credit were impressive and their range of passing was almost similar to that which had been witnessed just a few days earlier in the Chesterfield game but no matter how hard they tried they just couldn't break through a backline led well by Troy Brown. The substitutes appearances of both Kotwica and Harrison proved inspired as both players tackled Bury head on and it was the latter that scored the winner with a little help from some magical wing work by Jermaine McGlashan. The wingers quick feet left McNulty dizzy and his cross to the near post was bundled home by Harrison to win the day.
