On paper this afternoon’s game at Whaddon Road will be a tight call with hosts Cheltenham Town occupying npower League 2’s fifth spot and up against third-placed Fleetwood Town.  

The Cod Army has enjoyed back-to-back victories and striker Steven Gillespie will be looking to put a stop to the Robins four-match unbeaten run. Gillespie joined Cheltenham permanently in 2006 from Bristol City and 95 games for the Robins and scored 33 times.  The striker scored as a late substitute in Tuesday’s win at York and will be pressing for a place in the starting line-up today. “It’s back to one of my old clubs and I’m looking forward to seeing one or two faces from the past.  This time I'll be with Fleetwood and we'll be looking to take maximum points home. "All I can do is keeping working hard in training and starting or coming on when the gaffer calls me.  It’s all about minutes on the pitch and how you perform when the opportunity comes up.  I want to push myself into the side but we are doing so well. You only need to look at the quality on the bench week-in, week-out.” Town will be without Andy Mangan (knee) and Dean Howell (ankle). Full coverage is available through Twitter using @ftfc Town are in action at Highbury next Saturday when Wycombe Wanderers are the visitors.  Tickets are available all next week by calling 01253 775080, through the website or visiting the club shop which is open Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm (match day 9am to kick-off at 3pm). Hospitality is also available in the Parkside Suite.
