Birmingham City are in town this weekend and will be bringing a strong side to the Abbey Business Stadium to take on Mark Yates' Cheltenham Town.
New Blues boss Lee Clark will be keen to give some of his key players a stronger run out this weekend and Mark Yates will see this fixture as a tough test for the Robins on the back of a hard working week at the University of Glamorgan.
Kick off is at 3pm on Saturday afternoon and supporters can pay on the turnstiles.
Adults - £10
Concessions/Juniors - £5
The Paddock/Canteen area will be unavailable for Cheltenham Town supporters tomorrow but everywhere else is open as normal. The in2Print stand will be segregated in half due to the large volume of Birmingham supporters attending the game.

Billy Jones and Sam Deering will play for the very first time at the Abbey Business Stadium as Cheltenham Town players and trialist Tristan Plummer is also set to feature as he continues to fight for a contract with the Robins. There are no injury worries for Cheltenham.
Lee Clark will be looking to play a number of his key players this weekend with Curtis Davies and Peter Lovenkrands set to play a big role. It will be the first time Blues fans will get to see new signing Lovenkrands in a Birmingham shirt since his transfer from Newcastle United. Former Cheltenham loanee Jack Butland will not feature for Birmingham City because of his Team GB duties at the London 2012 Olympics. The Blues will be backed by over 1,000 Birmingham supporters who have bought their tickets in advance.
