2019/20 season review: January

15 July 2020

Look back on the month of January in Cheltenham Town's 2019/20 campaign in what proved to be a busy period both on and off the pitch.

The New Year brought in a short trip across the Severn Bridge to Rodney Parade to take on Newport County, and after a late 1-1 draw in south Wales there were back-to-back home victories over Oldham Athletic and Walsall.

A narrow defeat on the road at Crewe denied the team what would have been a useful point against an Alexandra side who gained promotion to League One automatically at the end of the season.

Another away trip saw a midweek visit to Bradford City. Alfie May's late leveller earned a point against the Bantams to complete a month that also saw May arrive on a permanent transfer from Doncaster Rovers, and goalkeeper Owen Evans and Tom Nichols arrive on loan from Wigan Athletic and Bristol Rovers.
