Match Preview

Duo make Robins worry Jeff Goulding and Martin Riley are both injury doubts ahead of Cheltenham's game with Burton. Striker Goulding was substituted in the first-half of the Robins' thrilling 6-4 defeat to Rotherham last week with a groin problem, while defender Riley missed the game with a minor hamstring tear. The duo are making good progress from their respective injuries, however, a late decision is likely to be taken over whether either player will be available to face the Brewers. Striker Theo Lewis has returned to training following his mild bout of glandular fever and could be included in the squad. Cheltenham beat Burton 6-5 last season and though the Abbey Business Stadium outfit were involved in another goalfest last week against Rotherham, manager Mark Yates is confident lightning will not strike for a third time. "We had a chat, we've worked on things and I'm confident that kind of thing won't happen again," Yates told the club's official website. If things go against us, then we'll respond in a much better way." Burton boss Paul Peschisolido will be forced to change a winning side. Albion recorded their first victory of the campaign at home to Morecambe last weekend but it came at a price as Paul Boertien suffered a calf injury. The full-back was forced off during the first-half and scans have revealed he will need around a month to recover. Centre-half Tony James could be recalled to deputise at full-back as he did at Barnet earlier this month. John McGrath, who replaced Boertien against the Shrimps, and fellow midfielders Jimmy Phillips and Jacques Maghoma are also pushing for recalls along with forwards Richard Walker and James Ellison.

Match Report

Jeffers the star A lively contribution from substitute Shaun Jeffers brought Cheltenham a narrow 2-1 win against previously unbeaten Burton Albion. After Burton led for much of the match through Shaun Harrad's 36th-minute angled drive, the arrival of on-loan Coventry youngster Jeffers 20 minutes from time transformed the home side's display. His pace and power instantly troubled the Brewers' defence, but it was a pair of precise crosses that changed the direction of the match. His first effort found the Robins' leading scorer Wes Thomas totally unmarked six yards out, who took his tally to five for the season with a powerful downward header. A minute later, Jeffers' cross found the late-arriving Josh Low, who looped a match-clinching header beyond keeper Adam Legzdins into the far corner. In a tight first half, with few clear-cut chances, Harrad put Burton ahead with a fierce 15 yard drive shot that went under Scott Brown's body. Cheltenham skipper Michael Pook came closest to equalising with a curling free kick, before the late headed double.
