Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Following a 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic, Cheltenham Town will look to get back on course in the League One when they take on Oxford United on Saturday afternoon. The Robins aim to escape the relegation zone and their displays in November are surely fuelling fans with optimism ahead of the visit of Oxford United. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the round 19 clash.
The Yellows, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Lincoln (2-0) and Leyton Orient (3-2) and seeing that a triumph over Cheltenham Town could see them climb to top position, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team this time out. A man to keep an eye on in the visiting team will be Portugal midfielder Ruben Rodrigues, who scored a brace in the last league match.
Highlighted Team (Cheltenham):
Founded in 1887 by a local teacher Albert Close White, Cheltenham Town are an English club that compete in League Two. The Robins wear white jerseys with red stripes and white shorts when playing at home, while sky blue is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Cheltenham Town clinched the FA Trophy in 1998, with the team defeating Southport 1-0 in the title game. The match was played at Wembley Stadium in front of 26,837 spectators, with John Eaton scoring the only goal of the match. The Robins have won Leamington Hospital Cup, Midland Floodlit Cup, Gloucestershire Senior Cup, Cheltenham League and Gloucestershire Senior Amateur North Challenge Cup as well.
The likes of Gloucester City and Hereford are seen as Cheltenham’s traditional rivals, while, in more recent years, Forest Green Rovers have been the club’s main rivals. A 12-0 win over Chippenham Rovers (November 2, 1935), with the team suffering their biggest defeat against Tydfil (1-10) on March 8, 1952.
