Cheltenham 2 – 2 Sheff Wed

Title-seeking Sheffield Wednesday fought back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw at Cheltenham.

All four goals came in the second half, with Aidan Keena and Alfie May putting the home side 2-0 up as the Owls looked set to be doomed to a third consecutive defeat.

But Aden Flint’s header gave hope and Lee Gregory scored a late equalizer to move them within two points of leaders Plymouth.

Cheltenham created the best chances in the opening 45 minutes but David Stockdale held them off with a string of saves, disallowing May twice and Keena.

Will Vaulks’ long-range effort was hit over the bar by Luke Southwood just before the break.

Southwood made an excellent save to prevent Michael Smith four minutes after half-time.

Cheltenham opened the scoring in the 62nd minute when Will Ferry’s delivery was missed by Dominic Iorfa, allowing Keena to score their second goal in two games.

May almost added a second two minutes later, but her effort rolled just wide.

But he made no mistakes in the 69th minute after his fifth goal in as many games as Stockdale could only parry Taylor Perry’s low shot.

Flint headed in a fine cross from Barry Bannan to restore hope for Wednesday and Smith provided the ball from the right for Gregory to hit the leveler with three minutes remaining.

Vaulks hit the post with the final kick of the game as Wednesday missed the chance to get the upper hand.
