Thornhill off the mark in Robins draw: Match Review

.

Matt Thornhill grabbed his first goal for Cheltenham as Mark Yates' struggling side stretched their unbeaten away run to five games with a 1-1 draw at Barnet.

Thornhill fired the Robins in front in the 20th minute, but Albert Adomah equalised 10 minutes before the interval to earn a point for the hosts.

Barnet started brightly with strikers Jake Hyde and John O'Flynn forcing visiting goalkeeper Scott Brown into early saves from close range.

But they were made to pay for their missed chances when Cheltenham took the lead against the run of play on 20 minutes as Josh Low's cutback was stabbed home by Thornhill.

The Bees rallied and equalised 15 minutes later thanks to Adomah's thumping drive into the top corner from the edge of the box.

Cheltenham should have moved back in front with their first attack of the second half but Theo Lewis sent a free header harmlessly wide.

Barnet then saw an O'Flynn strike ruled out for offside after 55 minutes.

Ian Hendon's men thought they had won it 15 minutes from time when Adomah's first-time shot crashed off the underside of the bar but was adjudged not to have crossed the line.
