After thirty-eight matches played, the Plymouth team scored seventy-one points and ranks fourth in the table, and has eight points less than second-placed Wigan. So far this season, they have recorded twenty-one wins, eight draws and nine defeats, with sixty-four goals scored and thirty-nine goals conceded. At home, they achieved twelve victories, three draws and four defeats in nineteen matches, with a goal difference of twenty-nine goals scored and fourteen goals conceded. They are in great shape, which is best shown by the fact that they have achieved all five victories in the previous five matches, with an impressive goal difference of ten goals and no goals conceded.
Three days ago, they defeated Accrington at home with a convincing 4-0, and thus made a great overture for the duel with the Cheltenham team, which has practically no competitive ambitions until the end of the season. We expect that the series of positive results will continue after this duel, considering that the players of the home team have been in great shape lately, and winning tonight’s match would seriously interfere in the fight to win second place in the table.

We can freely say that the Cheltenham team can play the remaining matches until the end of the season completely unburdened, since they cannot drop out of the league, and they cannot reach the playoff zone. After thirty-eight matches played, the Cheltenham team recorded twelve victories, fourteen draws and twelve defeats, which was enough for fifty points and the twelfth position in the table. In terms of efficiency, they have scored fifty-five and conceded sixty-one goals so far this season, and with an average of 3.1 goals per game, they are one of the most efficient teams in the league. They played eighteen matches on the visiting fields, and managed to achieve the result of three victories, eight draws and seven defeats, with a goal difference of twenty-six goals scored and thirty-five goals conceded.
It is interesting to note that the Cheltenham team, with an average of 3.4 goals in away matches, is currently the most efficient in the league, and that is mostly due to a very poor game in defense. Although they cannot reach the playoff zone, the Cheltenham players have won as many as three in the last four matches, indicating that they will not easily surrender in a duel with the favored Plymouth team, although a possible victory will mean practically nothing to them.

Plymouth vs. Cheltenham Prediction
Plymouth is in great form lately, and a possible win against Cheltenham tonight would reduce the gap to second-placed Wigan to just five points difference, and thus come to a situation where it is equally fighting for a direct place in the Championship. However, we decided to avoid predicting the winner of this match, and our choice is to bet on the number of goals. Cheltenham is one of the most efficient teams in the league, and the last five matches of the Cheltenham team have ended with at least three goals scored.
Given that they have no result ambitions and can play completely unburdened until the end of the season, we expect that they will not engage too much in the defensive segment of the game, and since the home team needs a victory, it is very likely that tonight’s match will be efficient.
Pick: Goals to be scored in both halves
