Cheltenham Town sealed promotion back to the Football League at the first attempt after beating FC Halifax Town to clinch the National League title.

Dan Holman also leaped to the top of the division's goalscoring charts with a first-half brace to take him to 28.

His first was a curled effort from the edge of the box after a good through ball by Asa Hall and then the striker slotted home a penalty from a handball.

Promotion was confirmed by Forest Green Rovers' loss at home to Woking.

A 22-match unbeaten league run through the winter did the damage for Gary Johnson's men.

Cheltenham return to League Two after just one season away and have won promotion with two games still to play.
