Cheltenham Town 0-0 AFC Wimbledon

Cheltenham's hopes of promotion from League Two were dealt a blow following a goalless draw with AFC Wimbledon.

In a first half of few chances, Jeff Goulding and Alan Bennett both saw efforts go wide for the Robins.

Substitute Billy Knott then went close for the visitors, but his shot flew just wide of the post.

The hosts could have won it in the closing stages at Whaddon Road, but Jimmy Spencer's header was tipped over, before Kaid Mohamed fired wide.

Cheltenham would have gone top if they had won, but Mark Yates' men stay second, third-placed Swindon's late win against fourth-placed Shrewsbury having allowed them to swap places with morning leaders Southend.


Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"I thought we played well, I was pleased with the effort we put in, I was pleased with some of the football we put in.

"We just didn't quite have enough to see it over the line, in times before this we would have got beaten, but we showed a bit of resolution, bit of fight and could have nicked it.

"We didn't quite make the right decisions at the right times when we got into really good areas."

"It's a good point gained, believe me - it's a point more than we had this morning, so for me it's a good point gained."
