“Even with Trevor Kettle in charge!” – Cheltenham fans react to win over Crewe Alexandra

Cheltenham Town ended a run of six successive away defeats on Saturday as they beat Crewe Alexandra 3-1 at Gresty Road.

The Robins fell behind in the first half thanks to a goal from full back Aaron Taylor-Sinclair, but Kevin Dawson equalised in first half stoppage time to ensure the sides went in level at the break.

Alex defender George Ray was sent off shortly after the restart and Cheltenham made their man advantage count as Billy Waters and Luke Varney scored late on over their former club to claim all three points.

Crewe were Luke Varney’s first professional club in football, joining the Railwaymen in 2003 from Non-League Quorn. He would have a successful four year stay with the Alex, notching 27 goals before sealing a £2m move to Charlton Athletic.

Waters came through the academy ranks at Crewe, before joining Cheltenham in 2015. He was released by then manager Steve Davis after scoring just two goals in 25 appearances.

The result sees Cheltenham equal their points tally from last season with six games remaining in League Two, and the Robins faithful were more than impressed with their sides efforts in Cheshire.
