Cheltenham vs Plymouth Prediction & Match Preview

Cheltenham vs Plymouth England League One prediction by Leaguelane

Cheltenham vs Plymouth
England – League One
Date: Sunday, 26 December 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Whaddon Road.

Failing to register a win in over a month now, Cheltenham is slowly slipping through the ranks of League One.

Plymouth was also winless during an entire month but with a win in their previous match, they have managed to stay within the play-offs spot.

These two clubs will battle it out for three points at Whaddon Road in a League One fixture this Sunday.

The Robins in their last match lost 3-1 away from home to Shrewsbury Town which saw the hosts move out of the relegation zone. This was Cheltenham’s 3rd loss in five fixtures from which they had managed a couple of draws as well.

Thus with just two points coming from their previous five league fixtures the side is 14th in the league, eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Cheltenham vs Plymouth Head-to-head

  • Argyle has lost twice in their last eleven duels.
  • Six clean sheets were registered in the previous seven h2h fixtures.
  • Two or fewer goals were scored in four of their preceding five clashes.
  • The visitors have just one loss in their last six trips to this venue.

Cheltenham vs Plymouth Prediction

The hosts have lost just once in their last 6 league matches at home, from which they have managed 11 points. While their opponents have struggled away from home with just a win registered in the last 5 matches on the road. 

To add to that the side has lost 10 away matches in the league in 2021. Considering the above I have backed Cheltenham with an Asian Handicap.

The average goal scored in the last five fixtures at this venue is 4. Additionally, the hosts have scored in eight of their last nine home matches. Furthermore, the Pilgrims have always been involved in high scoring fixtures and have scored in their last five matches.

With these observations in mind, I have backed both teams to contribute to a score line of three or more goals.
