Cheltenham   2 - 2   Torquay

Cheltenham 2-2 Torquay

Cheltenham 2-2 Torquay

Wesley Thomas scored a late equaliser for Cheltenham as they battled back from 2-0 down to draw with Torquay.

Jake Robinson picked up a Lee Mansell pass and fired in from 25 yards to give the visitors the lead.

Danny Stevens doubled the Gulls' advantage when he drove in an effort from just outside the area.

But Jeff Goulding pulled a goal back for the hosts from close range, before Thomas scrambled home late on to earn a point for the home side.


Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"Points-wise it's not what we would have wanted, but I thought the least we deserved was a draw - against a very good side I thought we were the better team, we've come back from two down and shown a lot of character.

"The performance, the spirit, the willingness to keep going, the desire - that's what I want from my team - it isn't always going to be pretty. We've got a 14-game season now, let's get some points.

"It's a good base now, we've had two [home games without defeat] and we've stopped the rot in terms of not collecting points at home."

Torquay United manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon:
"It was a game we controlled, at 2-0 up we were coasting and we were in total control.

"We had a couple of opportunities to run the clock down, but we didn't take it and we've paid the price."

"It's never nice conceding a goal late and if it was a good goal we'd hold our hands up, but we know we should have done a little bit better."
