Cheltenham add to the misery for relegated derby rivals Forest Green

22 April 2023

Alfie May’s double fired Cheltenham to a 3-1 derby win over already relegated Forest Green.

The result guarantees the Robins’ Sky Bet League One survival as they made it one defeat in their last 10 games, with all the damage done in the first half.

May opened the scoring in the 14th minute after Aidan Keena’s pass, finishing with a low shot in off the left post.

Keena added the second with another finish into the bottom left corner after seizing on a misplaced pass in the 31st minute.

Cheltenham were rampant and May reached Will Ferry’s cross from the left to steer the ball inside the far post with goalkeeper Ross Doohan taken out of the game in the 38th minute.

It was the in-form striker’s ninth goal in the last 10 games and his 20th of the campaign in all competitions.

Doohan fell on a shot from Keena at the end of a half dominated by the home side.

Rovers pulled one back three minutes into the second half when Corey O’Keeffe’s corner from the right was not cleared and Dom Bernard’s shot was touched in by Jordon Garrick.
