Away Days: Cheltenham Town

22 September 2023

Stevenage travel to Gloucestershire this Saturday for a Sky Bet League One clash with Cheltenham Town…

Boro have had an extremely positive start to life in the third tier, picking up an impressive fifteen points from their opening eight league games. The side sit inside the play-off places, just a point behind league leaders Portsmouth. Having lost just one league game so far, Stevenage are proving to be very difficult to overcome this season.

Last weekend, Steve Evans’ men added another point to their tally as they welcomed former Premier League outfit Charlton Athletic to The Lamex Stadium. The in-form Jamie Reid opened the scoring, but the visitors equalised late from the penalty spot.

The Opposition

Cheltenham Town have had a disappointing start to their campaign and will be looking to pick up some vital points this Saturday. The Robins sit at the bottom of the Sky Bet League One table, having picked up just one point from a possible twenty-four. They have also failed to score in all of their opening eight league fixtures.

Their most recent fixture consisted of a trip to Peterborough which did not go in their favour. Cheltenham’s James Olayinka saw red after five minutes which changed the complexion of the game as The Posh netted three past them to pick up a comfortable victory. The Robins were reduced to nine men late on as Nathan Butler-Oyedeji also received a red card. Butler-Oyedeji and Olayinka will consequently miss this Saturday’s clash.

Two days prior to this weekend’s battle, Cheltenham parted ways with First Team Manager Wade Elliott who had spent three years at the club. Assistant Manager Kevin Russell has been asked to take charge of the side against Stevenage on Saturday.


Stevenage have been quite familiar with Cheltenham over the years, first in the non-league days before both clubs made the Football League. The sides have met on twenty occasions in the past, with Boro winning eight, Cheltenham winning seven, and five of the games ending in draws.

Boro had to be patient at first to get a win over Saturday’s opponents as Cheltenham appeared to have their number in non-league. It was worth the wait though, as Stevenage picked up a 4-0 win at The Lamex Stadium in 2011 thanks to Byron Harrison’s brace, plus goals from Michael Bostwick and Mark Roberts.

Stevenage’s most recent trip to The Completely-Suzuki stadium ended in a 1-1 draw with Jack Aitchison grabbing his side’s only goal on Boxing Day 2020. Saturday’s encounter will be the first between the two clubs in the third tier of English football.

The Stadium

The Completely-Suzuki Stadium has been home to Cheltenham Town since 1932 and has a current capacity of 7,066. Away supporters are typically housed in the ‘Hazlewoods Stand’, an all-seater stand behind one of the goals which holds a capacity of approximately 1,100.


Leigh Doughty has been appointed as Match Referee for tomorrow’s fixture with Nigel Lugg and Bhupinder Singh Gill as his Assistants and Matt Corlett as Fourth Official. Doughty has dished out thirty-two yellow cards and one red so far this campaign.

Match Reports

Report: Cheltenham Town 0-3 Stevenage

23 September 2023

Stevenage take home all three points in Cheltenham thanks to Jordan Roberts' opener followed by an Elliott List brace...

Stevenage travelled west to Gloucestershire hoping to continue their positive start to their League One campaign. Cheltenham Town were the opponents looking to stand in the way of a victory as they also looked to pick up some vital points. Three changes were made from last weekend’s draw with Charlton Athletic as Krisztian Hegyi, Ben Thompson and Charlie McNeill returned to the starting eleven.

Boro started the game brightly as they looked to take an early lead, and after eight minutes they did exactly that. Dan Butler’s corner was whipped into the area causing all sorts of problems for The Robins’ defence as Jordan Roberts fired home directly in front of the superb travelling support.

Roberts looked lively early on as he almost doubled his tally moments later. Nick Freeman delivered a teasing cross into the box with Jordan Roberts rising highest, but his headed effort was well saved by Luke Southwood.

A couple of chances came Stevenage’s way soon after as Charlie McNeill and Carl Piergianni tried their luck from the edge of the area. McNeill saw his effort blocked and Piergianni fired just over the crossbar.

After the half hour mark had passed, Stevenage withstood a period of pressure from Cheltenham as the hosts looked for their first league goal of the season. Boro were determined to keep their clean sheet though, as The Robins failed to find the back of the net.

Stevenage managed to put the pace of the game back in their hands soon after as the fourth official held up seven minutes of additional time. Cheltenham had one last chance in the first half but were denied by a wonder save from Krisztian Hegyi moments before the half-time whistle.

No changes were made by either side at half-time as the second half soon got underway.

The opening ten minutes of the second half was a lot slower in pace as Cheltenham lost their momentum. A first change was made for Stevenage as Elliott List came on in place of Charlie McNeill.

On the hour mark, Boro had a golden chance to double their lead as Elliott List won possession of the ball allowing Jamie Reid to drive forward with it. The striker beat his man before taking aim, but Luke Southwood pushed his effort marginally wide of the post.

With twenty minutes to go, substitute Elliott List doubled Stevenage’s lead to the delight of the away supporters. The forward was unmarked at the back post as he fired home to get his first goal since returning from a year-long spell out through injury. A truly heart-warming moment.

Five minutes later, List had an eye for goal as the substitute doubled his tally and got the final goal of the game. Ben Thompson's long-range effort stung the hands of the Cheltenham goalkeeper, allowing Elliott List to tap in the rebound for Stevenage. The visitors were very much enjoying themselves.

Jamie Reid looked destined to get his name on the scoresheet soon after as he received a delightful diagonal pass from Carl Piergianni. Reid looked up and took aim but fired just wide of the mark.

Stevenage were very comfortable with their three-goal advantage and four changes were made late on. Jordan Roberts, Ben Thompson, Finley Burns and Jamie Reid made way for Alex MacDonald, Louis Thompson, Harrison Neal and Kane Hemmings.

Eventually, the referee blew his final whistle as Stevenage took home a big three points in their quest to prove themselves to be a threat in the third tier. Boro return to The Lamex Stadium next Saturday for a third vs second clash with Oxford United.

Attendance: 3,947 (349 away).
