Iron slip out of playoff spots

Last updated : 03 January 2002 By Luke Thornhill
Cheltenham Town's trip to Torquay United was the only fixture to escape the big freeze gripping the country, and the 1-0 victory for Cheltenham was the result that Iron fans didn't want.

Town leapfrog United into seventh spot, though United do of course have a game in hand to reduce the one point defecit.

The Iron's game against Macclesfield had been called off at lunchtime on New Years Eve, allowing the players to go out and enjoy the evening - as has reason to believe some players did, with us bumping into one first team player during our celebrations.
