Cheltenham equalised late on.
"Curtis Osano scored a good goal from a corner which was very well delivered by John Oster," said Reserve boss Brian McDermott. "And it was disappointing to concede in the final minute.
"But the main thing is that it gave a few of the senior players a run-out, and it was a good competitive game, although the second half was played in difficult windy and rainy conditions."
