Swindon Town 0-0 Cheltenham Town

Swindon and Cheltenham ground out a goalless draw after an instantly-forgettable match at the County Ground.

Much of the first half passed without incident, as neither Lawrence Vigouroux or Scott Flinders had much to do in either goal.

Immediately after the restart Will Boyle was booked for pulling Elijah Adebayo on the outside of the box, and Matt Taylor forced a good save out of Flinders from the resulting free-kick.

There was a scuffle just before the hour when a nasty James Dunne foul on Luke Varney led to Jordon Foster pushing Dunne in frustration. Dunne and Forster were booked for their part in the melee.

Dunne tried to make amends soon after, but he could only guide a low Adebayo cross just wide.

He almost turned to villain in the last 20 minutes when he sliced an attempted clearance towards his own goal, but Vigouroux produced an excellent save to reduce Dunne's blushes.
