A dramatic injury time equaliser allowed Rovers to snatch a point against Cheltenham Town, just when defeat was looking a certainty.

Shaun Harrad had given Cheltenham, whose squad included former Rovers men Steve Elliott and Darryl Duffy, the lead in first half stoppage time, but Oliver Norburn's spectacular long-range shot in the dying seconds of the match meant the score ended all square.
