Cheltenham vs Yeovil Town
English League Two
Date: Tuesday, 5 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Jonny-Rocks Stadium (Cheltenham).
Cheltenham took advantage of the easier fixture last weekend when they dispatched the penultimate-placed Macclesfield Town 3-2 at home to end an unpleasant three-loss streak. It seemed the horrendous thread would be continued for the Robins when they shipped two goals within the opening 23 minutes of the affair.
However, Macclesfield’s center-back Nathan Cameron was sent off 20 minutes into the game which left space for Michael Duffy’s men to show their fighting spirit and turn the course of the game on their side in the second half.
Luke Varney, Jacob Maddox and Charlie Raglan scored a goal apiece after the interval to secure a highly-important victory for their team. Cheltenham are now five points clear off the drop zone and position currently held just by Macclesfield Town.
Can this win motivate the hosts for a decent showing when they play host to 21st-placed Yeovil Town in another super important relegation six-pointer at Jonny-Rocks Stadium?
Cheltenham vs Yeovil Town: Head-to-head
The head to head record is all tied at 5 wins, draws and defeats apiece ahead of teams’ 16th meeting.

Just two of past six head to head games produced goals at both ends.
Cheltenham vs Yeovil Town: Prediction
Yeovil went three points clear off the danger area thanks to back-to-back clean sheet wins over Mansfield Town and Notts County. They could not back up such fine form last Tuesday when they unexpectedly fell 0-2 at home to section leaders Lincoln City.
However, we must say the Glovers looked much more consistent in recent weeks compared to their counterparts. Their improved defensive line might likely make the difference between the two teams on the evening. Furthermore, Yeovil Town generally played much better away from home this season as five of their seven wins in this term came on the road.
We’ll go with the away win as the main betting option, while more conservative punters can back the visitors not to lose at Jonny-Rocks Stadium.
