Match Reports

Report: Robins 0-0 Port Vale

28 January 2023

The Robins picked up a point at home after a goalless draw to Port Vale in Sky Bet League One.

A quiet opening passage of play saw both teams looking to seize control of the affair. James Olayinka’s pressure forced two successive corners, both seeing Caleb Taylor wrested to the ground, but not enough for the referee to take note.

The first real opportunity of the match fell to the away side, winning the ball on the halfway line, Politic charged towards the Robins box, cutting inside his powerful shot was too close to Luke Southwood, who strongly parried the ball from danger.

With 25 minutes on the clock, Arron Donnelly tired his luck from range as space opened up for the centre back to strike from 30 yards. Southwood again was on hand to parry the shot over the bar.

Town’s first spell of pressure resulted in their best chance of the opening half-hour. Will Ferry’s in swinging corner was met by a leaping Will Goodwin, who’s header looped onto the roof of the net.

Neat play from Vale’s standout player Politic, as he played a quick one-two inside the box, the forward chipped the ball over the onrushing Southwood, but an excellent last stich clearance saw Sean Long deny the visitors the opening goal. The Robins captain was quickest to react to the loose ball, throwing his body in the way of danger to clear for a throw in.

The 55th minute saw the first chance of the second half, Malvind Benning picked up a loose ball inside the Robins half, his left footed strike was well held by Southwood down low to his left-hand side.

Alfie May had the best chance for the Robins a few minutes later, Southwood’s long ball was headed back towards his own goal by a Vale defender, but May could only prod the ball into the midriff of Vale ‘keeper Jack Stevens who done well to spread himself at close range.

The visitors came close to opening the scoring in the final 15 minutes, substitute Rory Holden heading agaisnt the crossbar from 5 yards out, following a cross from the left hand side.

Stevens was tested twice in a matter of minutes, first dealing with Taylor Perry’s cross that went through a number of bodies, then reacting quickly to hold onto a loose ball with Broom looking threatening.

Calls for a penalty in the dying minutes fell on deaf ears, as Broom as unended trying to get the ball but nothing was given.  It was Broom who had the final chance of the match, a quick free kick was smartly taken on the right flank, with the midfielders strike across goal comfortable held by Stevens.

Cheltenham Town host Port Vale on Saturday in Sky Bet League One at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium on Saturday (3PM KO).

After the midweek postponment of our match against Sheffield Wednesday due to a frozen pitch, the Robins remain on home soil for this weekend's league clash against the Valiants. 

The sides first met in September at Vale Park and it was a close affair which ended in a 2-2 draw. 

Tickets are still available, and prices vary with adult tickets ranging from £18-£26, students and over-65s between £13-£18, and £7-£10 for under-18s. Tickets are still available online, and are cheaper when purchased in advance, so grab yours today to save money. 

If you are buying tickets in person, you can use cash or card from the sales point in the main car park.

Fans should arrive early to avoid queues, and any ticket changes should be made a day in advance due to the time it takes to alter tickets.

The gates will open from 1:30PM. On arrival and around the ground, you will see our new food pods. These are cashless, and only card payments are accepted.

We have a new information hut at the ground, which is run by our supporter liason and disability assistance team. It's located in the car park on the right hand side as you enter, between the ticket collection booth and “Hungry Robins” outlet.  The hut bears the logos of the Community Trust, Robins Trust, and Proud Robins, reflecting that we are all working together to support the club, represent fans and celebrate inclusion and diversity.

We aim to man the hut from around 1PM until just before kick-off on matchdays, and support with any disability assistance, provide access to free DAB radios, ear defenders and sensory packs, as well as taking bookings for our halftime cross bar challenge.

A new set of actions will be implemented across all English football leagues for the 2022/23 season and will be backed by the Football Supporters’ Association.
