Our prediction for this League 2 match:
High-flying Cheltenham Town will be looking to extend their winning run in League Two to six games when they host Port Vale at their Johny-Rocks Stadium. The Robins are on a five-game winning run in the League Two, but their whole season depends on the upcoming matches. Cheltenham Town need to keep on winning if they are to secure automatic promotion to the League One, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against Port Vale.
The Valiants, on the other hand, have been scoring goals for fun in the League Two of late, meaning that a lively contest is on the cards at Johny-Rocks Stadium. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the Robins, who recorded a win in each of their last six home fixtures in the English fourth tier. In their last meeting at Cheltenham Town’s home ground the Robins defeated the Valiants 1-0 thanks to Luke Varney’s troops.
Highlighted Player (Rohan Ince):
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.
However, despite signing a professional contract with the Blues, he did not see any game action at senior level. After playing for the Chelsea reserve set-up from 2010 to 2013, he moved to Brighton in the winter of 2013. Rohan Ince made 72 appearances in the league for the Seagulls, and he played for the likes of Fulham, Swindon Town, and Bury on loan as well before joining Cheltenham Town in 2019.
The 191-cm tall defensive midfielder made his League two debut with the Robins in a 1-0 loss to Leyton Orient on August 3, 2019. His primary position is defensive midfield, but he is used as a centre-back as well. Rohan Ince has dual citizenship (England/Jamaica).
Highlighted Team (Port Vale):
Nicknamed the Valiants, Port Vale are a professional club that compete in the League Two. Port Vale welcome their rivals at Vale Park, and they wear white and black kit when playing in front of home fans. Yellow, on the other hand, is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Valiants’ home ground, which was built in 1950, can hold up to 49,768 people. Championship side Stoke City are seen as one of the club’s fiercest rivals, but their rivalry is pretty healthy. The two teams first met on December 2, 1882, with the Potters emerging triumphant (1-0).
The Valiants maintain a rivalry with fellow League 2 club Crewe Alexandra as well. Speaking of the club’s titles, it has to be noted that Port Vale have won Football League Trophy on two occasions (1993, 2001). A 9-1 win over Chesterfield from September 24, 1932 is the club’s biggest triumph.
