Cheltenham Town will be looking to build upon a solid win last weekend away at Glanford Park this weekend.
The Robins march towards Scunthorpe United's Glanford Park for the first time since April 2009 this weekend.
Cheltenham Town snatched all three points versus AFC Wimbledon last weekend courtesy of Jamie Cureton's 94th minute winner and there is no doubt that the focus will be on building upon that foundation. It won't be easy though with the Iron currently experiencing a six match unbeaten run in all competitions.
Looking back on the previous meeting at Glanford Park won't offer much hope to the travelling fans with the Robins losing out 3-0 courtesy of goals from Paul Hayes, Cliff Byrne and Henri Lansbury. You have to go right back to March 2002 to witness Cheltenham Town's last victory on Scunny's home territory with Julian Alsop and Tony Naylor handing the Robins a 2-1 win.
Loyal Cheltenham supporters looking to make the long journey are reminded that tickets must be bought on the day from the Glanford Park turnstiles. Ticket cannot be bought in advance from the Cheltenham Town ticket office. We can also confirm that Travel Club seats have now SOLD OUT.

The Club and Town
Address: Glanford Park, Jack Brownsword Way, Scunthorpe, DN15 8TD
The town of Scunthorpe is home to one of the country's 'big four' (now three) major steelworks belonging to Corus (formerly British Steel), with the whole town growing up with the development of the steelworks around the biggest iron-ore field in Europe - although use of this local ore was discontinued totally in the 1980's. The discovery of iron ore in 1860 changed the landscape, creating the industrial town we see today.
The town has many parks and gardens as well as facilities for sport and leisure, with cinemas, a theatre, art gallery and museum. There are also two interesting churches, St Lawrence's church, 12th century, and St John's Church built from local ironstone.
