Cheltenham: Preview & Ways To Follow The Game

8 December 2017

Unable to make it to Cheltenham this weekend? The Alex have you covered…


Cheltenham Town vs Crewe Alexandra

Sky Bet League Two

Whaddon Road

Saturday 9 December, 2017

Kick-Off 3:00pm


Crewe travel to Cheltenham looking to build back-to-back unbeaten away games in all competitions.

The 1-0 victory at Morecambe & 3-3 draw in the FA Cup at Blackburn represented a huge turnaround in form on the road, & boss Dave Artell will be hoping that it continues in Gloucestershire this weekend.

The Robins proved a tough nut to crack last season, with Crewe failing to win any of the four meetings. Cheltenham won the league game 2-0 at Whaddon Road, before a 0-0 stalemate in the reverse fixture at Gresty Road.

In between came an FA Cup First Round tie & subsequent replay, with the Robins winning 4-1 after the initial tie was drawn 1-1. 

Artell says his squad are in confident mood following the fight-back at Ewood Park last weekend, & he's confident of a positive result in a vital game.

The best way to take in the game is obviously in person at the stadium (tickets available at Cheltenham, click here for more info) but if you can't make it, then take in the information below for different ways to follow the action!
