After a promising start by Town, it was Cheltenham who created the first serious chance when Richards shot just wide. Cheltenham then broke from a corner and Grimsby did well to get back and clear.

Coulson then produced a top save from Brown and from the resulting corner Linwood had a header cleared off the line.

Three minutes before half time Linwood gave away a penalty with a poor challenge on Richards. Richards took the kick after a long delay and hit the bar.

The first half ended 0-0 with Cheltenham on top.

On 56 Akpro broke in the second half and Eastham scythed him down and received a red card for a second offence.

Town had a goal disallowed in the 60th minute and Proudlock received a yellow card.

A couple of minutes later Proudlock was played onside and his shot was shaved from close range.

New signing Fletcher came on for Akpro with 20 minutes to go.

With 5 minutes to go Linwood gave the ball away to Lowe who failed to make the most of a golden chance.

Bore missed a good chance at the far post in the first minute of 4 minutes of injury time.
