Shrewsbury   1 - 1   Cheltenham

Shrewsbury v Cheltenham

Shrewsbury 1-1 Cheltenham

Tom Bradshaw's last-minute header rescued a point for Shrewsbury in an entertaining game with Cheltenham.

The Shrews started brightly and Robins keeper Scott Brown was forced to make a fine early save from Mark Wright.

But the visitors hit back and Wes Thomas grabbed his ninth goal of the season when he curled a neat 18-yard shot inside the far post on 26 minutes.

The hosts piled forward late on and were rewarded when Bradshaw nodded home the equaliser from 12 yards.


Shrewsbury boss Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire:
"When Cheltenham took the lead they got the confidence we seemed to lack, but we've got to be pleased with the fightback in the second half.

"Tom Bradshaw added a little bit of sparkle up front, and while the goal might have gone in off his backside we've deserved a bit of luck.

"Equalising lifted the dressing room and our supporters, and keeps us in the promotion pack."

Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"I thought we were superb today and my only criticism is that we didn't pass enough but I think we've proved that we're more than a match for the big teams in this league.

"We carved them open with our movement and our players really didn't deserve what happened to them at the end, Shrewsbury couldn't live with us for 45 minutes before that.

"We haven't got the biggest or best squad in the league but we've got a group of players that did brilliantly today with the only exception being that we didn't see out the last five minutes."
