Cheltenham Town vs Bury Match Preview
Cheltenham have greatly improved their home form in recent weeks, but their winning run at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium is expected to end against League Two title-chasing Bury.
The Robins have effectively banished any lingering relegation doubts with four straight wins on their own pitch and manager Michael Duff can now start making plans for the summer knowing the club will again compete in England’s fourth tier next term.
But Bury have loftier ambitions for they are on course to bounce back up to League One at the first attempt and will go top of the table if they win this game – which has been brought forward a week to avoid a clash with horse racing’s Cheltenham Festival.
The Shakers have been on a terrific run since the turn of the year and recovered well from the disappointment of missing out on a trip to Wembley for the Checkatrade Trophy final by winning 3-0 against Macclesfield at the weekend.
Ryan Lowe’s side have won five in a row on their travels and as they are a much superior team to any of the four Cheltenham have beaten at home recently, Bury look a good bet at just a shade of odds-on to maintain their promotion momentum with another three points.
