Grimsby   0 - 0   Cheltenham

Grimsby 0-0 Cheltenham

Grimsby 0-0 Cheltenham

Cheltenham missed a penalty at Blundell Park as Grimsby's winless run extended to 17 games.

Justin Richards fired his spot-kick against the bar after being fouled by Michael Leary on the stroke of half-time.

Ashley Eastham was then sent off for a second bookable offence but the Mariners failed to take advantage.

Cheltenham goalkeeper Scott Brown secured a point with fine saves from Nick Featherstone and Jean-Louis Akpro.


Cheltenham Town Manager Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"I pay my goalkeeper to make saves and I pay my defenders to defend, and we had to do that putting bodies on the line"

"I wouldn't have taken a point before the game, but I would've taken a point once Ashley Eastham was sent off - and he's got to learn from that".

"We defended well and kept our shape, but we've also created a number of decent opportunities on the break. Perhaps we were even a little bit unlucky not have gone on to win the game."
