Salford City – Cheltenham Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

He previously was part of the coaching setup at Turf Moor with Burnley and he replaced Gary Johnson during the early stages of the 2018/2019 season. Michael Duff is the Cheltenham manager at the moment and he will be eager to show what he can do in his first full season as a manager. Cheltenham havent won away from home in their last eleven attempts in all competitions, which includes the tail-end of last season, pre-season, and the start of the new campaign. Cheltenham thrashed struggling Stevenage 4-2 at home in their last match.

That clean sheet in their last home game will act as a confidence boost for Salford as they have drawn a lot of games that they should have won due to individual errors and keeping out Villa will give them the belief that they can stop Cheltenham from scoring as well. Salford kept a clean sheet in their last home game, a 2-0 win over Aston Villa U21s in the EFL Trophy, and the hosts have scored in each of their last six matches, against Morecambe, Aston Villa U21s, Leyton Orient, Carlisle United, Plymouth Argyle, and Port Vale.

However, Cheltenham havent won away from home in their last eleven attempts in all competitions, which includes the tail-end of last season, pre-season, and the start of the new campaign. Salford are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions and havent lost at home in League Two this season, but five of their last six games ended in stalemate, which is somewhat of a concern for the home side.

However, their win on the opening day of the season is the only time they have claimed three points in the league this season and although they are not a million miles away from a more dominant showing, they will know that they need to up their game in order to get in the promotion picture. Backed by the Class of 92, the hosts have plenty of money in the bank and have had major investment both on and off the field.

This weekend sees two sides face off who have contrasting expectations for the season as relegation candidates Cheltenham travel to a Salford City side who will be hoping they can continue their rise up the leagues. Part of the interest of the new season is watching the progress of the sides which are new to the division, will the relegated sides continue their descent and will the promoted sides be able to adapt to the new level or will they find things a bit tougher than they might have expected?

Salford are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions and havent lost at home in League Two this season, but five of their last six games did end in stalemates which is somewhat of a concern for the home side. Salford claimed a point away at Morecambe last weekend as the game ended 2-2 and extended their unbeaten run to six matches in league and cup.

We feel that over the course of the game, Cheltenham Town might need a bit of good fortune to get anything against this Salford City lineup who we think should score at least once to gain the upper hand. We therefore see a very even contest with a 1-0 win for Salford City when the full-time whistle blows.

Goalscorers

This was consequently, Alexanders first season in charge as well. Graham Alexander is the man in charge at Moor Lane as he led Ammies to promotion via the playoffs in their first ever season in the National League. In their last game, former Peterborough striker, Danny Lloyd was on target twice as he was quite fortuitous with the second goal as it was a horrendous mistake from Morecambe goalkeeper, Barry Roche.

Cheltenham have had trouble scoring goals away from home and Salford have scored in all of their last six matches, which is why we believe the hosts will claim all three points on Saturday. Were confidence that Salford will win on Saturday and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0. The hosts are yet to be beaten at home in the league this season and their guests are yet to win on the road.

In fact, Cheltenham havent scored in any of their last six away games in all competitions, through pre-season and the start of the new League Two campaign, which will only hand Salford even more motivation heading into this weekends clash. Cheltenham have also lost their last two away games, both of which ended 1-0, against Exeter City and Crawley Town, and their lack of goals and points on the road just adds more weight to our prediction of a 1-0 win for Salford this weekend.
