Cheltenham 2-2 Mansfield: Tyler Walker grabs last-minute point for visitors

Tyler Walker’s stoppage-time equaliser rescued a 2-2 draw for Mansfield against Cheltenham.

Cheltenham led 2-1 as the match entered the 93rd minute, but Nottingham Forest loan striker Walker’s second of the game extended the Stags’ unbeaten run to nine games.

The away side took the lead in the seventh minute when Walker headed in Mal Benning’s perfect cross from the left.

Cheltenham recovered from a sloppy start and Will Boyle forced Bobby Olejnik into a save in the 10th minute. From the resulting corner, Mansfield could only half-clear and Chris Clements set up Ben Tozer to make it 1-1 with a shot into the bottom right corner.

Tozer then turned provider in the final minute of the first half, skipping past Timi Elsnik on the right and crossing to the far post, where Boyle leapt highest to nod past Olejnik.

Cheltenham defended well under some Mansfield pressure after the break, with Jacob Maddox sending a shot just over the bar for the home side in the 69th minute.

But Walker struck from close range in the dying seconds to send the travelling fans home happy.
