A brace from on-loan striker Ben Marshall helped Cheltenham come from behind to secure a resounding 5-1 victory over Barnet and end the club`s winless run at 11 games.

The visitors dominated the early stages and were rewarded in the 13th minute when leading scorer John O`Flynn headed Albert Jarrett`s cross firmly past Scott Brown.

But the Robins hit back quickly when centre-back Andy Gallinagh scored his first goal of the season with a neat glancing header from David Bird`s free kick.

After Barnet`s Yannick Bolasie was denied by a fine low save from Brown, Cheltenham struck for a second time from a set-piece.

Marshall headed his first Cheltenham goal after Justin Richards` overhead had returned Bird`s free-kick across the face of the goal.

Jamaican Richards was denied by an acrobatic save from Jake Cole seconds after the restart, but he quickly made amends with a close-range volley from Marshall`s cross to make it 3-1.

Marshall himself then added his second after a defensive mistake five minutes from time, before Barnet`s misery was completed when Ismail Yakubu deflected Richards` shot into his own net to make it five and hand John Schofield his first win as Cheltenham`s acting manager.
