VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Scunthorpe manager Brian Laws told BBC Radio Humberside:
The first half, I thought we dominated large periods of the game, and we should really have seen the game out and buried it
When you miss opportunities to get your second or even third, they've still got something to hold on to.
In the second half, they took the gamble and pushed onto us. We had a couple of scary moments, but always needed that second goal.
Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"We've got to keep working hard and keep believing - believing is not saying the right thing, it's doing the right thing and at the minute we're just a little bit short.
"I think the supporters saw the effort and all the commitment. Everyone's just got to keep working and raising their game.
"For 60 minutes of the game today, I thought we were the better team but we've lost."
