Next up at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium: Bury, Notts County and Northampton

5 March 2019

Cheltenham Town have just six home fixtures remaining at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium in Sky Bet League Two before the end of the season, with three of them coming up in March and starting tonight against Bury.

Bury

Following this weekend's trip to fellow promotion chasers Mansfield Town, Michael Duff's men are back on home turf against another top three side in Bury on Tuesday evening (March 5, 7:45pm kick-off). 

Ryan Lowe's side are the fourth tiers' top scoring side and boast an exciting attacking line-up as they target an immediate return to Sky Bet League One following relegation last year. 

The Shakers will provide a tough test for Cheltenham, who are on a run of four straight home victories in the division after triumphs over teams in and around them in the table.

The Robins have also kept three clean sheets in a row at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium in wins over Yeovil Town, Cambridge United and Port Vale.

Make sure you don't miss Cheltenham's final Tuesday night home fixture under the lights against the Shakers as they look to avenge a 4-1 defeat at Gigg Lane earlier on in the season.

Notts County 

The second of back to back games in Gloucestershire next week sees the Robins face struggling Notts County in another important fixture against a team trying to avoid relegation on Saturday (March 9, 3pm kick-off). 

Having spent most of 2019 so far bottom of the league, the Magpies have improved under Neal Ardley following a busy January transfer window at Meadow Lane. 

Cheltenham have enjoyed very good form versus those teams around them in the bottom half of the division and won the reverse fixture in Nottinghamshire 3-0 as Duff registered his first away victory in charge. 

Northampton

After a Friday night trip to Newport at the end of Race Week, the Robins finish March with a home fixture against Northampton Town (Saturday 23 March, 3pm kick-off).

The Cobblers have endured a similar season to Cheltenham, also improving under a new manager since Kieth Curle took charge at Sixfields and also play a similar formation.

A 3-1 victory earlier on in the season provides Duff's side with another chance to do the league double over team in the fourth tier although loan forward Billy Waters will be ineligible to face his parent club.

Both the home games against Notts County and Northampton will see the return of some popular former players as FPA guests, stay tuned in due course to find out who they are.
