Recap: Cheltenham Town and Forest Green both leave it late to secure vital points in the League

Forest Green and Cheltenham Town both scored in the 88th minute on Saturday in their League Two fixtures and the goals were both scored by players returning from injury.

It was George Williams who scored a late equaliser for the Green Devils, after they went one-nil down to Oldham. It was an even greater moment for the goalscorer, after he broke his leg against the same team in the first game of season.

The away draw does not look like a bad result for Forest Green after losing three-two at home to Port Vale on Tuesday night, but the point does mean that they are still without a win in seven league games.

Cheltenham however earned another valuable three points to move them up to fifth place in the league.

Despite going a goal down to Leyton Oreint in the 17th minute, Winter signing Alife May scored just a minute after conceding to make the game level.

Striker Ruben Reid then netted the winner for the second time this week, to push the Robins even closer to solidifying their play-off position.
