Alfie May joined Cheltenham from Doncaster on a two-and-a-half-year contract

Goals from Max Sheaf, debutant Alfie May and Ryan Broom secured a comfortable home win for Cheltenham over Oldham.

The Robins’ first victory in six matches moved them back into the League Two play-off positions.

Sheaf struck in the 32nd minute, finishing well after Tahvon Campbell’s pull-back from the left. It was the first EFL goal of the Hull loanee’s career.

Campbell was denied by Zeus de la Paz after running through one-on-one after a pass from Sheaf, then May had the ball in the net five minutes before the break but it was disallowed for handball.

Cheltenham pressed for a second after half-time, but their experienced goalkeeper Scott Flinders was carried off on a stretcher after a collision with Scott Wilson in the 57th minute.

May made it 2-0 in the 76th minute after more good work from Campbell, firing in from close range after his initial effort was blocked.

Substitute goalkeeper Rhys Lovett made the save of the match to keep out a powerful strike from Oldham substitute Chris Eagles.

Broom added the third deep into time added on after Sean Long’s pass.
