FanZone open from 5.30pm

Town welcome Cheltenham Town to Portman Road tomorrow evening looking to make it five consecutive home wins in a row.

The Blues sit in ninth place in League One looking to maintain pressure on the top six, while the Robins occupy fifteenth position in their first season back in the third tier after last season's promotion from League Two.

Michael Duff's side were involved in an incredible ten-goal thriller away at Wycombe on Saturday drawing 5-5. Cheltenham's Alfie May scored four for the visitors taking his tally to 15 League goals this season.

Town visited the Robins back in August which ended in a 2-1 defeat with Cheltenham coming from behind after Matt Penney opened the scoring.
