Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cheltenham town will be looking to build on the Carabao Cup win over Peterborough United when they kick off their League Two campaign with a match against Morecambe. The Robins have big ambitions for the 2020/21 season, and they will give their best to book their place in the playoffs. It has to be noted that the club chiefs did well to add the likes of Andy Williams, Lewis Freestone, Liam Sercombe, Joshua Griffiths, Elliot Bonds, Matty Blair, Max Harris, and Finn Azaz to the club in the summer transfer window.
Morecambe, on the other hand, failed to impress in the last League Two season, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Saturday’s football match. Cheltenham Town are more of a team than Morecambe, and anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise.

Rohan Ince is a professional footballer who plays for Cheltenham Town as a defensive midfielder. Born in Whitechapel, England on November 8, 1992, Ince started his football development at the Chelsea football academy.
