Cheltenham   0 - 0   Port Vale

Cheltenham 0-0 Port Vale

Cheltenham 0-0 Port Vale

Port Vale will stay second in League Two after they could only manage a draw away at Cheltenham.

The visitors had the best opportunity when Andy Gallinagh deflected a Marc Richards cross onto his own post.

Cheltenham goalkeeper Scott Brown was at his best to deny Justin Richards and John McCombe as the visitors pushed for an opener.

Brian Smikle came closest to scoring for the home side, but saw his shot fly over as the sides shared the points.


Cheltenham Towns Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"They showed us respect by playing five at the back and I was pleased with the effort and commitment we showed today.

"We didn't deserve to win it but we wanted to and it was a good clean sheet against a really potent set of forwards.

"They shaded the first-half, we shaded the second but we just couldn't produce the quality to beat the keeper today"
