A superb free kick from Cheltenham's Frankie Artus helped the Robins to a share of the spoils in their 1-1 draw against Morecambe.

The midfielder produced a wonderful strike from 30 yards that beat Barry Roche to his right-hand side in the 69th minute.

Morecambe had taken the lead 10 minutes earlier when Stewart Drummond produced a looping header from Tony Capaldi's left-wing cross that beat Scott Brown as the ball found the top left-hand corner of the Cheltenham goal.

Both sides then had chances to win the game with Cheltenham's Brian Smikle heading wide from an open goal three yards out on 89 minutes and the home side's Andy Fleming also came close with a header from Chris Shuker's right-wing cross.

The first half saw plenty of decent approach play with Morecambe having keeper Roche to thank for three excellent saves from Smikle.

Morecambe's best efforts came from Jimmy Spencer and Kieran Charnock.
