Cheltenham Town have really struggled up front in recent times. Their sum of goals stands at just 1 versus opposing sides over their last 6 outings. In those games, Cheltenham Town have also seen the number of goals that have gone against them total 9. That sort of trend isn’t assured to follow through here, of course.

- have not been beaten in the league by Stevenage in their last 3 games.
- are without a home win in the past 4 matches in the league. Fans are getting restless.

The only name on the scoresheet from Stevenage was Jamie Reid (34'). Corey Blackett-Taylor (92') scored for Charlton Athletic.
Throughout their six previous matches, Steve Evans's Stevenage have turned their attacks into goals a total of 8 times therefore giving them the goals per game average of 1.33.

Team News: Cheltenham Town
The Cheltenham Town boss Wade Elliott will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game thanks to a fully injury-free group to choose from.
It’s our opinion that The Robins will probably kick off with a 3-4-1-2 formation for the game with Luke Southwood, Sean Long, Owen Bevan, Lewis Freestone, Oliver Hammond, Will Ferry, Liam Sercombe, Elliot Bonds, Aidan Keena, Jovan Malcolm and Robert Street.
Team News: Stevenage
Due to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the Stevenage manager Steve Evans doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all before this clash.
There’s a good chance that Boro seem likely to utilise a 3-4-1-2 lineup with a starting lineup of Krisztian Hegyi, Dan Sweeney, Nathan Thompson, Carl Piergianni, Nick Freeman, Dan Butler, Ben Thompson, Finley Burns, Jamie Reid, Jordan Roberts and Charlie McNeill.
Our feeling is that Cheltenham Town will need to put in a solid display to get anything against this Stevenage team who we reckon will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
That’s why we have predicted a very even contest with a 0-1 advantage for Stevenage when all is said and done.
There should be little in it.
