Manager Michael Duff praised his team's performance and felt they were deserved winners after Carabao Cup victory at the Weston Homes Stadium.
Cheltenham recorded a 1-0 away win over higher level Peterborough United to advance to the second round of the competition thanks to Liam Sercombe's second half hit.
In what was the Robins first outing of the new 2020/21 season, the behind closed doors fixture saw Duff's charges produce a strong all-round performance.
There was also a clean sheet for debutant and teenage goalkeeper Josh Griffiths who would have enjoyed his 19th birthday.
He was among a group of five players who made their debuts for the club and Duff was also full of praise of their first performances in red and white.
