Robins snatch point off Shrimpers

Matt Richards' stoppage-time penalty secured Cheltenham Town a 1-1 draw at Southend United in League Two.

The Shrimpers seemed to be heading for a sixth successive win and the top of the table when Kevan Hurst put them ahead just before the break.

But Richards' spot-kick six minutes into time added on handed the Robins a dramatic share of the spoils.

Cheltenham started strongly and Southend goalkeeper Daniel Bentley did well to keep out Kemar Roofe's 12-yard shot before he also parried away a deflected free-kick from David Noble.

The Shrimpers made the most of those let-offs four minutes before half-time when Hurst fired home at the second attempt after being picked out by Barry Corr's downward header from John White's right-wing cross.

But the Robins replied right at the death, with Richards sending his late penalty into the left-hand side of the goal after Southend winger Anthony Straker had handled Jermaine McGlashan's header at the far post.
