Macclesfield   0 - 2   Cheltenham

Highlights - Macclesfield 0-2 Cheltenham

Macclesfield 0-2 Cheltenham

Macclesfield were left to rue missed chances as clinical Cheltenham made them pay at Moss Rose.

It had all been one-way traffic, with Robins keeper Scott Brown clawing wide a Paul Bolland header before Tyrone Barnett headed over from close range.

But soon after, veteran Josh Low beat the offside trap to score from 15 yards, and then Brian Smikle hooked in Danny Andrew's free-kick.

The Silkmen missed further chances through Barnett and Ross Draper.


Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"It was a splendid performance. We had to compete - you have to dig in against these, they play to their strengths and they play it very well.

"But I thought we handled it very well, competed and at times played some great football, scored a couple of really good goals and could have scored quite a few more.

"It was a big three points for us, we needed it, we needed to get above them, we need to get closer to that pack ."
