Cheltenham   1 - 1   Rotherham

Cheltenham v Rotherham

Cheltenham 1-1 Rotherham

Cheltenham front man Julian Alsop scored a late equaliser to thwart Rotherham's efforts to keep pace with second-placed Dagenham and Redbridge.

Adam Le Fondre capitalised on a handling error by Cheltenham keeper Scott Brown to open the scoring for the Millers in first-half stoppage time.

But Alsop headed home a Theo Lewis cross with five minutes remaining to clinch a point for the Robins.

The draw leaves Rotherham four points adrift of league leaders Bournemouth.


Rotherham United caretaker manager Steve Thornber tells BBC Radio Sheffield:

"It was there to see, we created enough chances specially first half to win three games.

"We know what their strength was, we've defended we've not looked like conceeding we've defended it for 89 minutes.

"They scored with the only threat they had."
