We've lost the last two meetings at PP against the Robins. 0-1 against Gary Johnson's NL champions and 2-3 from 2 up under Rob Edwards. Their fans are disgruntled about the failure to adequately replace Mo Eisa, striker sold to Bristol City, their move for Danny Rowe also stalling.
Hard to call, so I'm going for the spoils being shared in front of a crowd of about 7k including around 200 from Cheltenham.
I don't mind admitting this but im 70 next year and sitting here with butterflies looking forward to todays game really want a win but just glad to be playing league footy hate predicting but sod it 3-1 noors 2 Sutton 1
As is often the case a slightly nervy ending in a game we should have won comfortably.
Started very well. Great pressing and energy and a great strike from Nors to give us the lead. After that we kept going and wasn’t surprised monthe came on as a left footer.
Second half a bit scrappy but Nors was wasteful of 2 great chances and made the wrong decisions in other good opportunities.
A win is a win and encouraging we played so well albeit against a poor Cheltenham side. Man of the match. Thought banks and Norwood were very good but Jennings for me who worked his socks off.
Of the home debutants. Thought caprice was ok if not spectacular. Tried to get forward. Smith looks decent but I’m never a fan of playing left footers on the right. CJ was excellent but I’d still like Tollit in the starting eleven. Stockton I’m afraid didn’t impress. He only has one tricky which is the back to goal and turn. I didn’t think he held it up well overall and his control wasn’t great.
