Match Preview

Robins in rude health Cheltenham manager Mark Yates has a fully-fit squad at his disposal as he prepares his npower League Two high-flyers to face Northampton. Goalkeeper Jack Butland came through his England Under-21 appearance in midweek unscathed and he is set to start between the sticks while full-back Luke Garbutt will also come back into the starting line-up after spending time with the England Under-19s this week. Cheltenham will be hoping to cut the gap on first-placed Swindon with a victory at Whaddon Road and Luke Summerfield, Kaid Mohamed and Darryl Duffy are all looking for first-team recalls. The trio had to settle for a place on the bench during the 2-0 victory over Burton last time out. Northampton have no new worries. With a busy March ahead, manager Aidy Boothroyd may make changes. Defenders Byron Webster and Ben Tozer and forwards Lewis Young and Jake Robinson are among those players who could be restored to the starting line-up. "We didn't pick up any injuries against Port Vale and everyone is fine for Saturday," said Boothroyd. "We've got eight games in March and we are going to need the whole squad. "We had a reserve game against Leicester in the week and it was very important for us to get some match time into some of the players. "It was a very good competitive game and it gave me a chance to look at one or two players coming back from injury. "It also gave me a chance to have a look at one or two players who might come into contention for Saturday and with a lot of games coming up in a relatively short space of time we have got to try and keep everybody fit."

Match Report

Robins leave it late to frustrate Cobblers Darryl Duffy scored a late brace as promotion-chasing Cheltenham claimed a 2-2 draw to deny relegation-threatened Northampton a memorable victory. First-half goals from Ben Tozer and Adebayo Akinfenwa put Aidy Boothroyd's bottom of the table side on course for three headline-grabbing points, but Cheltenham dominated the second half and duly hit back. Northampton opened the scoring in the 20th minute when Michael Jacobs' ball into the box was touched against a post by Brett Williams and Tozer followed up from close range. Luke Summerfield saw a chip touched over by Matt Duke, but Northampton hit Cheltenham on the break to make it 2-0 in the 35th minute. John Johnson's long ball falling to Akinfenwa, who applied a calm finish. Williams wasted a chance to make it 3-0 in the 44th minute, firing wide from a great position. Duke parried a drive from Summerfield three minutes after half-time before also blocking well from Jermaine McGlashan. But there was nothing he could do in the 76th minute as substitute Duffy pulled one back from the penalty spot after Johnson handled, and the Robins striker earned a point for the hosts with a last-gasp strike after Kaid Mohamed's pass.
