Braces from James Beattie and Marlon Pack ensured the spoils were shared between strugglers Accrington and promotion-chasing Cheltenham.

Pack opened the scoring for the Robins from the penalty spot after Nicky Hunt fouled Jason Taylor.

Beattie's close range header levelled things before he smashed home his second from the edge of the area.

Stanley were denied the win when Pack headed home from close in after Darren Carter's free kick was half cleared.
