Whaddon Road
Cheltenham Town's return to the National League came after 16 seasons in the Football League

Cheltenham Town drew for the second successive game in the National League after being held by Aldershot.

Jim Stevenson fired over early on for the visitors while Robins striker Danny Wright was twice denied by the post.

Amari Morgan-Smith then had an effort ruled out for offside for the hosts, while Aldershot's best chance saw Rhys Browne shoot wide from six yards.

Harry Pell and George McLennan both went close for Cheltenham as Aldershot took their first point of the season.

Aldershot Town manager Barry Smith told BBC Surrey:

"It was a fantastic game and the fans, especially the travelling ones who came here in their numbers, would have enjoyed watching that.

"We did ride our luck at times but we also created some chances that on another day we might have scored.

"Once we got sorted out, I thought the boys played extremely well and made it very difficult for them. We defended the box a lot better and we come away with a good point from a very difficult place to come."
