It's a point gained not dropped - Boss

23 September 2017

Manager Gary Johnson insisted it was ‘a point gained’ as his Robins secured a deserved 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley in Sky Bet League Two.

Mo Eisa grabbed his sixth goal of the season as Cheltenham Town took the lead before Kayden Jackson equalised before the break.

And the Robins also had chances in the second half as Jerell Sellars and Freddie Hinds forced late saves from Aaron Chapman.

“I think it’s a point gained,” said Johnson. “But, I must admit, in the last five minutes I wanted to go and win it.

“We finished strong and had a couple of great chances, the goalkeeper has made a couple of good saves and we missed the free kick chance in the first half.

“The first half was a little bit disappointing, we had chances and they had chances. It was a little bit too open. In the end it was a fair result.

“At Yeovil I felt it was two points lost, but today I felt it was a point gained. They are strong here and they have good combinations and good footballers.

“We coped with that second half, we had to because we couldn’t allow them to have the same level of opportunity they had in the first half.

“We were decent going the other way. We created chances and I’m going home happier than I normally am from these away fixtures.
