Leamington achieved a very creditable 0-0 draw against League 2 Cheltenham in front of a crowd of 570 and one dog at the New Windmill Ground today. The Robins brought their first team squad and each side fielded different teams in each half.
In the first half the Robins looked like a League 2 side with some fluent passing and good pace that often meant they were first to the ball. Just before the break Cheltenham looked like they might go ahead but Tony Breeden in the Brakes goal made a superb save.
After the break prodigal son Richard Morris returned to the Leamington goal in an orange outfit that led to suggestions that his name was now Richard van Morris. But he was capable of dealing with anything Cheltenham could produce. For their part Brakes played with greater confidence, playing neat diamonds in midfield and pressing forward more.
However, it fell to Morris to make a superb save five minutes before the end to deny Cheltenham.
