    On any other night Cheltenham would have won this game by a couple of goals, however they didn't sharing the points in a 1-1 draw with the home side. Cheltenham dominated vast periods of the game and only superb goalkeeping by Fleetwood's stopper Davies saved the day.
    The first half was almost all one way towards the Fleetwood goal. The Robins played some good passing footward with Benson, Deering and Pack dominating the game.
    The only surprise was that it took the visitors 24 minutes to take the lead, having gone close through Deering, Pack finnaly scored from outside the box following a corner. (0-1)
    Davies then denied Taylor with a super save after a fine following move. Carter was then unlucky to see his curling shot go inches wide.
    On half time in a rare attacking move Brown saved a close range effort from Fontaine.
    Fleetwood made a change bringing on Parkin and the well built forward put in a super cross which Gillespie failed to convert. Cheltenham began to press again and Benson was denied by the best save of the night by Davies, pushing away the close range effort one handed.
    The introduction of Junior Brown sparked further improvement in the home side and it was Brown who headed past his namesake in the Cheltenham goal to level the score. (1-1)
    The goal sparked Cheltenham back into attacking mode however they lacked the cutting edge to take the points.
