Cheltenham   2 - 1   Stockport

Cheltenham 2-1 Stockport

Cheltenham 2-1 Stockport

Cheltenham picked up their first win in nine games as Wes Thomas downed League Two's bottom club Stockport.

Jake Thompson, on loan from Exeter, put the hosts ahead when he raced onto Jeff Goulding's pass and slotted past Hatters debutant Ian McLoughlin.

Aaron Brown pegged the Robins back when he rose to head home David Poole's cross unmarked at the back post.

Thomas earned the winner when he robbed defender Mansour Assoumani, cut inside and slotted into the corner.


Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"We were better all over the place, we had energy, we had a tempo to us, we closed down, second half we didn't start too well.

"I'm not going over the top, but it was a damned sight better than Saturday. We've got our things that we're not quite so good at, but when they give me that commitment and effort then we look a half decent team.

"We've never said we're the finished article, we've never said we're going to do this, we're going to do that and perhaps one or two have got carried away that we have been in a lofty position - we needed that win."

Stockport County caretaker manager Peter Ward told BBC Radio Manchester:
"It shows the deficiencies in our squad. When we lose three players we look a shadow of the team that played on Saturday [a 3-2 defeat by Bradford].

"The naivety of our defending is just becoming so frustrating.

"It was frustrating as they sat back and drew us on and hit us with a sucker punch on the counter-attack."
