So, a Pancake Day clash with The Robins, Cheltenham Town. Queue all the crepe pancake jokes coming out.
Cheltenham’s last six results:
16th Jan - Bolton Wanderers (a) - Drew 1-1
19th Jan - Newport County (h) - Drew 1-1
23rd Jan - Manchester City (FAC4) (h) - Lost 3-1
26th Jan - Oldham Athletic (h) - Won 2-0
30th Jan - Forest Green Rovers (a) - Drew 0-0
9th Feb - Harrogate Town (a) - Won 1-0
We got battered by this lot when we played at their place earlier on in the season with a flat performance from us not helping. Maybe this time we can flip the result.
Team selection as usual will be hard to predict, however of the little bit I’ve seen of him, Frank Vincent might be worth a start and hopefully Tyreik Wright (attracting interest from Everton and Celtic no less) is fit enough to start after having to leave early against Mansfield due to injury. Given our preference to play long balls up front, I’d also like to see Lavery dropped and Osei-Yaw given a start as he is surely more physical given his height.
As usual, I’m interested to see which players have played for both clubs along with your memories of these, so get your choices in.
Whatever happens let’s just hope we don’t get battered and get to witness a flipping good game, without a to$ser of a referee.
- Walsall win
- Goalless Draw
- Score Draw
- Cheltenham Win
