Cheltenham vs Port Vale Prediction, Tips & Stats

18th and 14th will meet in League One this weekend as Cheltenham Town welcome Port Vale to the Completely-Suzuki Stadium following on from a postponed game during the week for Wade Elliot's men.

As Elliot's side had the week off, Vale had to deal with an excruciating loss at Vale Park to Derby County. The club led from the 56th minute thanks to Funso Ojo, but two goals in the last five minutes for the Rams meant all three points went away from Vale Park.

Darrell Clarke's men are still in 14th as a result, but they do have a game in hand on everyone just above them in top half of the table beside Peterborough United, Barnsley and Portsmouth. In fact, should Vale claim all three points in that game in hand, they could move ahead of Bristol Rovers in 11th and narrowly behind Shrewsbury Town in ninth by just goals difference.

Regardless, in what is Vale's first League One campaign in six years, the club are simply just going to be pleased at the 11-point gap on the bottom three.

Cheltenham's four losses in a row in January since they beate Shrewsbury back at the end of December does leave them down in 18th. The Robins have a gap of only four points on Cambridge United in 22nd and a fight in the bottom six looks almost certain unless they can turn their form around.

Derby, Morecambe, Plymouth Argyle and Bristol Rovers have all beaten them in January in League One and Elliot's men have managed to concede 14 goals in this time too. Their only positive in this run has been their journey to the EFL Trophy semi-finals, where they meet with Plymouth once again at Home Park.

These two are barely separated right now in the odds. Cheltenham are at 2/1 to win this game and Vale also sit at 5/4 to snatch all three points. Over 2.5 goals also sits at 8/11 and under 2.5 goals is at 1/1 in this one. Both teams to score does sit at 4/5, but both teams not to score is at 10/11. As it could be a low-scoring game, the correct score group betting sees Cheltenham to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 at 3/1 and Cheltenham to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 at 11/. Port Vale to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 is at 9/4 while Port Vale to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 also sits at 15/2.
