As the League One season edges closer to its climax, Cheltenham Town and Carlisle United gear up for a pivotal encounter at Jonny-Rocks Stadium on April 9, 2024.

This match carries significant weight for both teams, especially for Cheltenham Town, who are fighting tooth and nail to avoid the drop. With Carlisle already condemned to League Two, they'll be looking to salvage pride, while Cheltenham aims for a crucial win to boost their survival hopes.

Current Form

Cheltenham's Current Form

Cheltenham's April began with setbacks, suffering defeats to Exeter City and Leyton Orient. These results have left them in the perilous position of 22nd in the table, with a record of 10 wins, eight draws, and 22 losses.

Yet, the gap to safety is slender, with the team just two points adrift of 20th-placed Port Vale and with a game in hand.

The upcoming fixture against Carlisle, followed by a clash with Bristol Rovers, presents an opportunity for Darrell Clarke's men to amass vital points, particularly given four of their last six matches are at home.

Carlisle's Current Form

Carlisle's situation is more dire, with relegation already confirmed following a loss to Northampton Town.

Despite a gallant victory over Peterborough United at the end of March, April has been unkind, marking consecutive losses to Lincoln City and Northampton.

The team's form has been a concern all season, and they hold the league's worst away record.
