Football Betting: Cheltenham Town vs. Bristol City in the Jonestone's Paint TrophyPublished October 8, 2014 by Amir G
Bet live on the Jonestone's Paint Trophy round 2 duel between Cheltenham Town and Bristol City (7:45pm UK time).
Round 2 of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy (Football League Trophy) continues today as Cheltenham Town FC hosts Bristol City at Whaddon Road at 7:45pm UK time.
Cheltenham is currently positioned tenth in the League Two table with 16 points having won 4 games, drawn 4 games and lost 3. The team hasn't won in six games, their last game against Wimbledon on Saturday ending a 1-1 draw. The Robins will be very keen on winning today on home turf. They'll have to do that without midfielder Asa Hall and defender Paul Black who are sidelined due to injuries, however the team will be able to put into use Jason Taylor and Troy Brown who returns from bans.
The memory of their painful encounter with Oxford United still lingers for Bristol City. The League Two team stunned Bristol in the 87th minute back in August in a late goal that eliminated Bristol from the second round of the Capital One Cup. With this experience, Bristol arrives at Whaddon Road today to face yet again a League Two team – one that has not won in six games and is desperate to get out of the rut.
Anxiety must be high with Bristol players as they put their reputation on the line again today against a League Two team. Midfielder Marlon Pack who will play against his former club is determined to avoid another embarrassment, saying that they need to relax and play their normal game.
