Cheltenham hoping to bounce back after two defeats

This season was always going to be difficult for Cheltenham Town after two successive play-off campaigns, which both ended without promotion.

But despite a bad start to the campaign and an ever-changing squad, the Robins are confident of flying up the table and mounting a another play-off charge for League One.

Bristol Rovers derby cancelled due to waterlogged pitch


Jamie Cureton tells ITV News West Country 'I want to keep going as long as possible'

In a threat to make all defenders wince, Jamie Cureton told ITV News West Country that he wants to continue playing into his forties.

The Cheltenham Town star, now in his 12th club, said he wanted to go on for "as long as my body lets me".

Following his record breaking 250th goal at the weekend he refused to say which of the 12 clubs was his favourite, but he did reveal a soft spot for one Westcountry team. But you'll have to watch the video to find out which one!


Fans and former colleagues congratulate Jamie Cureton on his goal record

Yates praises Cureton's historic goal

The Manager of Cheltenham Town has praised Jamie Cureton's 250th goal of his career, but says he should have got it earlier in the game.

Speaking to the club's website Mark Yates said:

Jamie's goal was opportunism but he should have scored after the first minute and it turned into a bit of an air shot. Nothing bothers him though and he is a great professional.

England debutant Rickie Lambert scored the goal at the Memorial Stadium to send Rovers through to the final in Cardiff 1-0 on aggregate.

Cheltenham Town also have a West Country derby as they've been drawn at home to Plymouth Argyle - their opponents at Whaddon Road this afternoon.
