Fan reaction: Oli Fell's view of Cheltenham 1 Wimbledon 0
Oli Fell's view of Cheltenham 1 Wimbledon 0:
I don't think I've ever seen a crazier last 10 minutes of a game than that... From despair, to joy, back to despair, then back to joy supporting Cheltenham TOwn truly is the rollercoaster ride of a lifetime.
I was slightly surprised with our team selection, I'm not a big Jason Taylor fan, and he wasn't exactly great today, and I wasn't really sure that he should have played ahead of Sido.
I'm still not comfortable with Matt Richards and Keith Lowe as our two full-backs. There's not enough pace there to pose a threat, especially having Russ Penn on the wing too.

That was a fairly drab game, in all honesty. But, as they say, a win is a win. And I'm certainly not complaining about the game.
It never really felt like there was a goal in the game and, to be honest, I thought they were going to score from the indirect freekick and that would be it. But, nevertheless, the side showed fantastic resilience to go on and win it.
The game itself only really livened up in the last 20 minutes. Both sides were playing some great football, and although the result was harsh on Wimbledon, the three points are coming home with us.
I'm really hoping that win can kickstart a run now, we desperately need some more points. It's not great being 19th in the league, but I have total faith in the players, the board and especially in Yates that we can turn it around.
That is a massive relief though, and hopefully some fans, who might have wanted Yates out, can now look at the future more optimistically.
Another top performance from our two top men, but, like I said, I'm not convinced about Richards and Penn being used in their secondary positions.
Heading into our next game, I'd love to see Sido Jombati come back in for Taylor. And then pushing Richards up to left midfield. This leaves Craig Braham-Barrett on the bench, ready to come back in when he's ready.
All in all, it's a stepping stone on the road to recovery.
OUT OF 10:
Scott Brown 7- Clean sheet and played a part in the goal. Not bad for your 250th.
Keith Lowe 6- Standard performance from Keith today, defended well.
James Wilson 7- Outstanding at the back.
Troy Brown 8*- Didn't put a foot wrong today.
Matt Richards 5- Ineffective at left-back. Needs to change to left midfield or centre midfield.
Jermaine McGlashan 6- A quieter performance, but kicked us into life.
David Noble 6- Classy passing, battled well.
Jason Taylor 4- Off the boil today.
Russ Penn 5- Ineffective at left-midfield. Needs to move centrally to impact the game.
Byron Harrison 7- Battled hard in the first half, had Bennett in his back pocket!
Terry Gornell 7- Was everywhere in the second half. Great performance.
Jamie Cureton 6- Two words: Get in.
Sido Jombati: n/a
