Shrimps-Robins FAC tie abandoned

BY foxsports • November 29, 2008

Morecambe's FA Cup second-round clash against Cheltenham on Saturday was abandoned after 64 minutes due to fog at Christie Park.

The game was level at 1-1 after on-loan Robins striker Barry Hayles had levelled Rene Howe's 15th-minute penalty.

Howe slotted home the spot-kick after he was brought down by Robins keeper Scott Brown who was fortunate to only receive a yellow card.

Danny Carlton had a glorious chance to make it 2-0 after 42 minutes but saw his effort well saved by Brown.

Cheltenham's only effort of note in the first half was a David Bird free-kick which was well saved by Barry Roche low to his left.
