A brace from on-loan striker Ben Marshall helped Cheltenham come from behind to secure a resounding 5-1 victory over Barnet and end the club's winless run at 11 games.
The visitors dominated the early stages and were rewarded in the 13th minute when leading scorer John O'Flynn headed Albert Jarrett's cross firmly past Scott Brown.
But the Robins hit back quickly when centre-back Andy Gallinagh scored his first goal of the season with a neat glancing header from David Bird's free kick.
After Barnet's Yannick Bolasie was denied by a fine low save from Brown, Cheltenham struck for a second time from a set-piece. Marshall heading his first goal for the club after Justin Richards' overhead had returned Bird's free-kick across the face of the goal.
Jamaican Richards was denied by an acrobatic save from Jake Cole seconds after the restart, but he quickly made amends with a close-range volley from Marshall's cross to make it 3-1.
Marshall then added his second of the night after a defensive mistake five minutes from time, before Barnet's misery was completed when Ismail Yakubu deflected Richards' shot into his own net to make it five and hand John Schofield his first win as Cheltenham's acting manager.
