Last Time We Met - Cheltenham Town

12 October 2017

The Valiants welcome Cheltenham Town to Vale Park on Saturday afternoon in Sky Bet League Two, but what happened last time the two teams met?

You have to go back to March of 2013 to find the last fixture between the sides, but it was Vale who came out on top on home soil. 

Tom Pope found the net to hand Micky Adams’ men a 19th-minute lead, but two goals early in the second half pulled the visiting side ahead.

As the game became more open, Pope was on hand again on 58 minutes to level things. The striker then found the winner 16 minutes later after he raced onto a pass from Louis Dodds.

Remarkably, the hat-trick took Pope’s goalscoring tally to 30 in League Two. The Valiants earned promotion into the third tier come the end of the season.
