Gulls rock Robins with JPT win

01 September 2009 10:41
The Gulls led 3-0 at the break at Whaddon Road after 45 minutes of slick passing which had Cheltenham chasing shadows with two goals from Danny Stevens and an Elliot Benyon header just reward for their dominance.

Within a minute of the restart, Nicky Wroe had a penalty saved by Scott Brown, much to the annoyance of Stevens, who wanted the chance to compete his hat-trick but was overruled by skipper Tim Sills.

Cheltenham came on strong after the break with Josh Low pulling a goal back after 55 minutes but the Gulls deservedly went through.

Stevens' opener came after six minutes, aided by a deflection from Michael Townsend, and after 31 minutes they were two up when Benyon glanced in a cross from Wayne Carlisle.

Stevens fired in his second on the stroke of half-time with an angled drive from 16 yards after Benyon picked him out.
