BOTH TEAMS WILL BE BUOYED BY DRAW

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

THERE may not have been any goals at the Globe Arena but both teams showed why they have en­joyed far more pos­i­tive starts to the sea­son than many ex­pected.

The first half be­longed to un­beaten Chel­tenham, who played with con­fi­dence as they laid siege to Barry Roche’s goal.

The big keeper pulled off sev­eral ex­cel­lent stops to keep More­cambe on level terms.

Wing-back Craig Bra­ham-Bar­rett was the Robins main out­let and More­cambe’s Shaun Bee­ley had his work cut out to con­tain him.

John Mar­quis also caused ma­jor prob­lems for Jim Bent­ley’s side but some­how it re­mained 0-0 at the break.

In the sec­ond half Chel­tenham’s back three were forced to throw their bod­ies on the line, which they did ad­mirably to weather the storm and reg­is­ter their fourth clean sheet in six out­ings.

A point each was a fair out­come and both man­agers will be en­cour­aged by what their teams served up.
