Cheltenham vs Plymouth Prediction

Cheltenham were left frustrated with a point yet again after Port Vale did just enough to hold them to a 1-1 draw on the road. The hosts took the lead through Alex Addai before the half-hour mark in that latter matchup. However, an own goal from Ben Tozer, fifteen minutes later, meant that the home side would have to settle for a draw.

Nevertheless, Cheltenham are unbeaten in their past three clashes and have garnered five points from a possible nine as well. At the moment, they are sitting fourth on the ladder, with a four-point advantage over ninth-placed Plymouth.

On the other hand, the visitors will be making the trip to Whaddon Road on the back of a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup. The guests, however, have been faring well in their recent clashes in League two.

They have stumbled just once in their past four clashes, the most recent of which saw them pull off a 3-0 win over Morecambe at home. Be that as it may, Plymouth have dropped points in seven of their past ten outings.

In sharp contrast, Cheltenham have been at the losing end just once on home soil this season. It is also worth mentioning that the hosts made no mistake in securing the win when they locked horns in the reverse fixture back in September.

As such, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Cheltenham. However, considering that Cheltenham have been alternating between draws and defeats in their last six games here in all competitions, the safest punt in this one would have to be a double chance.

Furthermore, the hosts have not looked organized at the back, even in front of the home crowd. They have conceded a goal or more in each of their past six clashes here overall.

Moreover, Plymouth have had their names on the scoresheet in each of their past six trips here. Hence, count on the visitors to find the back of the net along with Cheltenham in this one.
