Match preview: Cheltenham Town

19 November 2021

Take a look at the latest stats and facts ahead of Town's Sky Bet League One away fixture with Cheltenham Town at the The Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

Shrewsbury Town will be looking to move out of the relegation zone when they travel to mid-table side Cheltenham Town in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.

Steve Cotterill will look to continue his side's good form in the league after ten days without a game due to the international break with Town's most recent league results finishing in a win and a draw. 

After a five year stay in Sky Bet League Two, Cheltenham Town returned to the third division following their title winning season and have so far enjoyed a solid start to their season. They are currently sat in 16th place and are so far not looking like a side that will be dragged into a relegation battle as the season progresses.

Managed by club legend Michael Duff who returned to the club back in 2018, the Robins have had some decent results so far this season, with a decent 2-1 win away to Charlton Athletic and impressive draws away to Portsmouth and at home to Sheffield Wednesday. The club will be looking to build on these results against Salop on Saturday.

Name: Cheltenham Town Football Club

Founded: 1887 (134 years ago)

Chairman: David Bloxham

Biggest Victory: 12–0 vs Chippenham Rovers, FA Cup 3rd qualifying round, 1935

Biggest Defeat: 1-10 vs Merthyr Tydfil, Southern League, 1952

Highest League Finish: 17th, Sky Bet League One, 2006-07

One to Watch: Alfie May

After joining Cheltenham from Doncaster Rovers in January 2020, Alfie May has gone on to become one of the first names on Michael Duffs team sheet. Scoring nine times last season as they won the League Two title, the 28-year-old has started life in League One well.

He is currently the club’s top scorer this season, having scored five goals in all competitions whilst also registering two assists as well. Salop will need to be on top form if they’re to keep May and Cheltenham quiet on Saturday.
