Match Preview

Robins at full strength Cheltenham are in the perfect position to continue their good recent run of form, as manager Mark Yates has no injury or suspension worries for the clash with Rotherham on Friday. The Robins currently sit second in npower League One, having lost just once in their last 13 outings in the league, and could climb to the division's summit if results go their way on the night. Yates is unlikely to change his starting line-up from the side that secured a creditable goalless draw against fourth-placed Shrewsbury on Boxing Day. Huddersfield striker Jimmy Spencer has extended his loan deal at Whaddon Road through until the end of the season, and will be hoping to keep his place up front. Rotherham will pick Conrad Logan in goal for the final time. The 25-year-old's six-month loan stay at Don Valley comes to an end and manager Andy Scott has confirmed he will return to Leicester after the Whaddon Road clash. Winger Marcus Marshall will play no part after suffering an ankle injury in training on Wednesday and he has been ruled out for the New Year programme. Defender Johnny Mullins suffered a head injury in Boxing Day's 0-0 draw at Macclesfield and he will face a test with a decision being made on his availability on Friday morning. Winger Gareth Evans made a surprise return at Moss Rose following an ankle injury and suffered no adverse reaction so he will be involved again while Mark Bradley (shoulder) and Ryan Cresswell (ankle) are both back in full training. Scott is confident his side can get something out of the game and said: "They are riding a crest of confidence and it is a tough place to go at any time but we think we can cause them as many problems as they can cause us."

Match Report

Millers sent packing Marlon Pack's stunning 25-yard strike handed Cheltenham a 1-0 victory at home to promotion rivals Rotherham. The midfield marvel drilled a low shot beyond goalkeeper Conrad Logan on 11 minutes to cap an impressive display. The Robins should have added to their tally before half-time with Luke Garbutt forcing Logan into a hurried save when he let fly with a 35-yard effort. Bagasan Graham drilled a shot across the face of goal on 18 minutes while Jimmy Spencer crashed a header just wide of the target on the half-hour. After a promising opening ten minutes, Rotherham struggled to create anything of note before the break, Lewis Grabban going closest when he dragged a shot wide after holding off defender Steve Elliott. The Robins continued to dominate the chances after the break with Spencer hitting the outside of the post midway through the half before substitute Kaid Mohamed, on the pitch for less than a minute, was denied by a full-length save. Cheltenham keeper Scott Brown was finally forced into action late on to keep out a Brett Williams header but the home side ran out worthy winners.
