CHELTENHAM TOWN boss Gary Johnson insisted his side were the better team as the points were shared in the first ever Gloucestershire Football League derby.

"It was chance after chance in the second-half and we should have put at least one of those away," admitted Johnson after the 1-1 draw with Forest Green this afternoon.

He felt Cheltenham nullified Rovers, but was disappointed to see the Robins spurn a number of chances to earn a victory at The New Lawn.

He added: "We were better team and had most of the play, but that that doesn't count for anything if you don't take your chances. I'm pleased with the way we fought back after giving away a soft goal so early in the game, and our work-rate was exceptional, which it needed to be in such a passionate local  derby.

"Mo (Eisa) took his goal really well and would have had a second hard it not been for a great save by their keeper (Brad Collins). It looked like it was going in, but he did his job really well there."
