PREVIEW | Cheltenham v Yeovil Town

Glovers make the short trip to Gloucestershire

4 February 2019

Town are in midweek action once again as they head to Cheltenham Town on Tuesday night (7.45pm) for the rearranged fixture.

Originally due to take place in mid-October the Sky Bet League Two encounter was postponed due to the Glovers' international call-ups. 

Darren Way's side now head to Gloucestershire looking to get back to winning ways after defeat in their last two outings. 

It'll be a return to action for the Robins on Tuesday after they sat out the weekend's round of fixtures when their clash with Cambridge United fell victim to the recent freezing conditions. 

Michael Duff's team will be targeting back-to-back home wins after a dramatic 3-2 win over Macclesfield last time out, whilst the green and whites could be forced to make changes. 

Sessi D'Almeida was a first-half withdrawal at the weekend with a shoulder injury that's awaiting assessment, whilst Josh Grant (ankle) dropped from the matchday squad. 

Alex Pattison (back) and Omar Sowunmi (ankle) continue their journey to full fitness although Gary Warren (groin) could return after missing the trip to Stevenage.

Having made seven January signings, Francois Zoko, Alefe Santos and Daniel Ojo were left out of the matchday 18 last time out but are eligible for the journey to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium. 

Head-to-head
The Glovers will hope for a repeat of their last visit to Cheltenham which came on Boxing Day last year. 

Omar Sowunmi's Goal of the Season and a late strike from Jordan Green secured a 2-0 win, as the head-to-head record remained tight. 

Cheltenham's victory in the reverse fixture this season saw them take a 6-5 lead from the 16 previous meetings since 2002. 

Officials
Tim Robinson will the man in the middle at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

His 23rd game of the campaign, it'll be his first involving Town after mainly officiating in the Championship and League One. 

On Tuesday, Mr Robinson will be assisted by Andrew Fox and Mark Jones with Keith Stroud acting as fourth official.
