Grant McCann takes his camp to Jonny-Rocks Stadium to face one of his former clubs. McCann joined Cheltenham in 2003 after two previous loan spells at the club from West Ham. He finished with 179 appearances and 41 goals for Robins before moving to Barnsley in January 2007 for £100,000.

Today is Wade Elliott’s first game in charge after taking over from Michael Duff, who also left to join Barnsley this summer.

Posh is sweating over the fitness of Joe Ward and Nathan Thompson entering the game and Harvey Cartwright is also likely to miss with a thigh complaint.

  • Potentially Sammie Szmodics’ last game for Posh
  • Cartwright, Ward and Thompson are all struggling with injuries
  • Lucas Bergstrom set for senior debut
  • Wade Elliott’s first game in charge of Cheltenham

Last chance Cheltenham long throw.

Knight was a wedge. More than 30 seconds.

Range Ebanks Thunderbolt. Bergstrom just goes down in time. Great backup.

Posh see the first few minutes. Good defense from Burrows and Ward.

Yellow for Freestone, Southwood lifts the ball from the free kick, Ward controls but Freestone steals and it’s a blatant yellow.

It’s on target but an easy catch for Southwood.

Marriott looks sharp, wins a free kick after popping up behind Raglan. 30 meters further, on the left.

All loose balls falling in Cheltenham now. Ebanks appears to be in good position after controlling a long ball but is offside.
