Report: Robins 2-2 Charlton Athletic

7 May 2023

The Robins drew 2-2 with Charlton Athletic on the final day of the Sky Bet League One season.

A late goal from Alfie May as well as a second-half-strike from Aidan Keena secured the point for the Robins, which confirmed they would finish 16th in the table. 

Cheltenham started the game well, with Ryan Jackson winning a corner that was played in by Liam Sercombe before being cleared by Charlton.

Charlton did take the lead through Scott Fraser who tapped in from close range ten minutes before half-time.

The Robins would bring the game level just after time, May went for goal which was saved by Ashley Maynard-Brewer but turned in by Keena from close range.

Cheltenham kept the pressure up, May found himself in space in the Charlton half before playing through Will Ferry whose long-range effort went wide of the post. 

Not willing to accept a draw, May drilled a ball across the six-yard box that was flicked goal-wards by Ryan Broom but went just wide of the post.

Ferry whipped a brilliant ball toward the back post, May met it on the volley but sent the ball over the bar. 

Despite the pressure from the Robins, Jack Payne capitalized on a loose ball to give the visitors the lead.

A superb left-footed effort from May put the Robins level just before full-time earning a well-deserved point for Cheltenham.
