Cheltenham 3-2 Crewe

Cheltenham 3-2 Crewe

Cheltenham   3 - 2   Crewe

A Wesley Thomas double saw Cheltenham come from behind to see off Crewe.

Crewe led when Patrick Ada smashed in a fine volley but the Robins levelled when Thomas fired in at the back post after a Brian Smikle shot was saved.

The home side went ahead just before the break when Thomas pounced after another Smikle shot was half-saved.

Calvin Zola lashed in the visitors' second to level against the run of play but Jeff Goulding's sharp turn and low drive won the game for Cheltenham.

Home keeper Scott Brown produced a point-blank save to deny Shaun Miller a headed equaliser and Westwood's through-ball eluded everyone and hit the post in the final minute.


Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"It was exciting, it was a little bit nervy at the end, but they [Crewe] had got nothing to lose, they were trying to get back in the game. If we'd have made better decisions, we'd have killed them off.

"I was pleased with the performance and I think that the supporters have got something that they can get behind and be excited by.

"I thought we played some great stuff, Crewe are a renowned passing team and like to stroke it around and open you up and I think we did exactly that to them."
