REPORT: Cheltenham Town 0 Stanley 0

Reds chalk up second successive away league point

11 February 2023

Accrington Stanley made it two consecutive League One points with a 0-0 draw at Cheltenham Town.

Goalkeeper Lukas Jensen proved the Stanley hero, keeping out the Robins especially in the second half.

Both sides are one of the lowest scorers in the league and it was a tight game – Cheltenham haven’t won in the league in 2023 and Stanley haven’t won on their travels since November.

The point keeps Stanley in the relegation places ahead of their clash with promotion-chasing Wycombe at the Wham Stadium on Tuesday.

There was no Harvey Rodgers for Stanley as he sat out a one-game suspension with Baba Fernandes slotting in and Aaron Pickles making only his second starting appearance for the Reds.

Mitch Clark returned to the bench after injury - he last played at the start of January.

Stanley started well but Cheltenham had the first chance with a counter-attack on 11 minutes which ended with Wolves loanee Taylor Perry’s shot touched out by Jensen.

The Robins had another go a minute later but an overhead kick by Sean Long was straight into Jensen’s arms.

Stanley were frustrated on 25 minutes when a high challenge by Ryan Broom on Liam Coyle was only punished by a yellow card.

John Coleman’s side started to create more with Sean McConville and Shaun Whalley both firing just off target.

Cheltenham were dangerous on the counter-attack though and 10-goal top scorer Alfie May fired into the side netting from one quick breakaway.

A slip let in the Cheltenham defence allowed Aaron Pressley to run into the area but, as he looked to make space, defender Charlie Raglan got back to block his shot.

The best chance of the half came Stanley’s way on the stroke of half-time when Rosaire Longelo’s cross found McConville in the six yard box. He got in front of his marker but could only find the arms of keeper Luke Southwood.

It was Cheltenham was bossed the chances in the second half.

Stanley had a let off just after the restart when a defensive mistake gifted Aiden Keena the ball and he fed May in the six-yard box but he thankfully fired wide.

Jensen kept out Broom at the near post and pushed over a strike from Liam Sercombe.

On 70 minutes, Coleman made a double change with Tommy Leigh and Nathan Butler-Oyedeji replacing the front pairing.

Jensen was the hero again keeping out May from close range on 80 minutes while Sercombe rifled the ball off target in the final minutes.
