FULL TIME: Cheltenham Town 2 Accrington Stanley 1

First published in Sport

BURY target Kal Naismith missed an injury time penalty as Accrington Stanley were beaten at Cheltenham Town in League Two.

Naismith, the subject of a rejected bid from the Shakers earlier in the week, had equalised for Stanley in the 77th minute at the Whaddon Road.

That cancelled out Byron Harrison's 34th-minute opener for Cheltenham, but the hosts went back in front with six minutes left through Koby Arthur.

Stanley looked like they had been handed a lifeline in stoppage time when substitute Piero Mingoia was brought down in the box, but Naismith fired the spot kick over the bar.

Another woeful season for Accy. Won't be surprised to see them go down.

A little early for that assessment but we've been the bookies favourites for relegation ever since we came into the league & yet we're still here, starting our ninth successive season in league 2 - don't bet on us not being here for a 10th!
