Steven Gillespie scored a stunner for the Robins but Maynard’s super show leaves the Robins still stuck in the relegation dogfight.

Maynard left keeper Shane Higgs helpless with a curling 14th-minute finish into the top corner from Kenny Lunt’s cross.

Gillespie levelled matters in the 66th minute with a superb piece of skill to confuse three Alex defenders before he lobbed the ball over Williams and into the net.
