Cheltenham Town (H)


By Pete H

Our FIFA 20 Verdict has us picking up 11 points from the last six League Two outings. Will we be adding to that haul indoors against the Robins? As it stands, we’ve done enough to pull level on points with Morecambe and Macclesfield Town. Well, that’s if they’re not doing their own FIFA 20 Verdicts too. We didn’t ask and we’re not going to. Ignorance is bliss as far as the bottom of League Two is concerned. So, let’s get crackin’ what we can control…


FIFA 20 Verdict: Boro’ v Cheltenham Town

(Can’t see the video? Go to YouTube instead)

Hells bells – this was dull. Even the game itself could only be bothered to burp up just over a minute’s worth of ‘highlights’. On paper, the stats are gonna tell you that we didn’t land a single shot on target. But that includes Charlie Carter clipping the outside of the post, plus a Danny Newton effort that came back off the upright. For some reason, that didn’t make it into the showreel. And yet Diaguely Dabo‘s non-event of an effort did.

We don’t know why either. But it’s another point. And that’s something…

Stevenage – 0
Cheltenham Town – 0

Team (4-2-3-1): 
Farman — James-Wildin, Soares, Cuthbert, Leesley — Lakin, Dabo — List, Carter, Kenners — Newton
