Cheltenham stretch unbeaten run with goalless draw against Burton Albion

01 April 2023

Cheltenham Town extended their unbeaten run to six matches with a 0-0 draw at home to Burton Albion.

It was a largely uninspiring encounter between improving teams who have moved clear of the bottom four in recent weeks.

Aidan Keena forced Albion goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray into the two best saves of the game with a well-struck shot in each half.

The Irish striker, who had scored in the previous two games, thumped one towards the near post in the final minute of the first half, but MacGillivray pushed it away.

And he made a flying save to touch Keena’s curling effort over the bar in the 64th minute.

The closest Burton went to finding a breakthrough was a free-kick from Joe Powell that flashed just wide of the post with Luke Southwood at full stretch in the 51st minute.

Jasper Moon cleared off the line to deny Caleb Taylor in the 77th minute and at the other end Dale Taylor’s shot was parried by Southwood.

Keena and Alfie May sent low shots just wide late on on as both teams had to settle for a point.
