Kurtis Guthrie
Kurtis Guthrie has made 11 appearances for Forest Green Rovers this season

Kurtis Guthrie's header helped Forest Green Rovers rescue a draw against Gloucestershire rivals Cheltenham and remain top of the National League.

The Robins took the lead against the run of play when Amari Morgan-Smith turned in George McLennan's cross.

David Pipe equalised by heading in from Keanu Marsh-Brown's free-kick, before Harry Pell put Cheltenham back ahead.

But Guthrie's late goal secured a draw which keeps Rovers three points ahead of the Robins at the top of the table.
