Cheltenham to Win

A four-match winless run has all but ended Portsmouth’s playoff hopes for another season and Pompey look set for another disappointing afternoon when they visit Cheltenham on Saturday. The hosts have been formidable on their own patch in recent weeks, where they have claimed 12 points from the last 15 on offer and Town’s ability to carve out positive results at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium makes them very backable at the generous prices on offer this weekend.

Over 1.5 Cheltenham Team Goals

Cheltenham rattled the net four times in a draw at Accrington last week and Michael Duff’s attack-minded troops have also been in excellent goal-getting fettle at home, where they have notched at least twice in four of their last five assignments. Cheltenham are playing with real fluidity in the final third and they are an interesting prospect in the over 1.5 team goals market again against out of form Pompey.

Alfie May to Score Anytime

Alfie May has been a chief protagonist in Cheltenham’s free-scoring team this term and the 28-year-old is among the leaders in the race to win League One’s Golden Boot. May’s goal in midweek was his sixth strike in eight league appearances for Town and the lethal finisher is worth backing to make another match-defining impact against Portsmouth.

Cheltenham vs Portsmouth Match Preview and Team News


Charlie Colkett, Ben Williams, Charlie Brown and Dan N’Lundulu are all injured for Cheltenham while Kion Etete is considered a doubt. Town scored two injury time goals to earn a point in a pulsating 4-4 draw at Accrington Stanly last week and spirits should be high in their camp this weekend as a consequence.


Shaun Williams, Jayden Reid and Reeco Hackett are all in the treatment room for Portsmouth at present, while defender Kieron Freeman is also touch and go for the weekend. Pompey drew 1-1 at Bolton on Tuesday evening, when they conceded a 76th-minute spot-kick leveller. Portsmouth are now a massive 12 points below the playoff positions in League One.
