Cheltenham boss Mark Yates felt the referee was influenced into giving a late penalty which led to Stockport claiming a 1-1 draw.Brian Smikle put the visitors ahead but Greg Tansey scored with a stoppage-time spot-kick which came after Hatters fans had invaded the pitch to stage a sit-down protest.An angry Yates said: "It was never a penalty, the lad has dived and it was just plain cheating,"We deserved more from the game but that's life."I think the fans had an influence on the decision to award a penalty. What happened before the incident clearly had a bearing on it."We've achieved our objective for the season and that's it, no more, no less. We've now got a lot of work to do over the summer to make sure we are better next season."
