Low: Scored opener

Cheltenham secured their League Two status with a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley.

The Robins took an early lead through a Josh Low strike from 12 yards out with less than ten minutes on the clock after he converted a Justin Richards pass.

However the home side may have to rue plenty of missed chances which should have given them a convincing victory.

The visitors drew level midway into the second-half when Chris Turner's powerful effort from inside the area defeated Town goalkeeper Scott Brown.

Another chance went begging for Cheltenham just before the break when a header from Julian Alsop was brilliantly saved by Stan shot-stopper Ian Dunbavin.

Michael Townsend then went close early in the second period but he failed to find the target with his header from six yards out.
