In opposition: Cheltenham Town - form guide

22 October 2021

Cheltenham Town come into the weekend sitting 12th in Sky Bet League One following automatic promotion from League Two last campaign.

This promotion came just five years after the Robins earned their place back in the English Football League from the National League.

Under the direction of manager Michael Duff, now in his third season in charge at Whaddon Road, the Robins enter the weekend having amassed 18 points from 13 games. Overall, they have six wins, seven losses and five draws across all competitions.

They arrive at the Keepmoat on the heels of consecutive League One wins over Morecambe and Accrington Stanley. In their past 15 games, Cheltenham have grabbed five wins, four draws and lost six games in all competitions.

Cheltenham are averaging 1.15 goals per game on the season, and have four wins, one loss and one draw in games for which the Robins have scored multiple goals. Counter to that, the Robins have dropped seven of eight games (including one draw) for which the opponent scores multiple goals.

The Robins have kept just two league clean sheets (vs. Accrington Stanley and Oxford United) and have failed to scored four times.

The goal scoring for the Robins comes mostly up top with former Rovers striker Alfie May (four goals), Kyle Joseph (three goals), veteran Kyle Vassell (three goals), midfielder Callum Wright (three goals), and another former Rovers Andy Williams (two goals).

Chris Hussey is the man to watch on the wings. He’s provided a team-high number of crosses into the box with 61, with Liam Sercombe next on 28 crosses. Another familiar face Matty Blair along with Will Boyle anchor the defence with 14 interceptions each, while Lewis Freestone leads the squad with 18 tackles won, followed by Blair with 16 tackles won.
