First time: Kevin Hodges’ Greens lost 0-2 at Whaddon Road on Tuesday, November 23, 1999 in a Division 3 match.

Last time: Sonny Bradley scored a brace as Derek Adams’ team won 2-1 at Cheltenham on Saturday, January 21, 2017 in League Two. Bradley had already scored the winner when the two clubs met at Home Park the previous September.

Biggest win: 3-0 on Saturday, March 28, 2015 in League Two. Reuben Reid with a brace and on loan Charlton Athletic forward Zak Ansah were the scorers for John Sheridan’s Argyle.

Heaviest defeat: In what was to prove to be his penultimate game in charge, Kevin Hodges saw his men lose 2-5 on Saturday, September 23, 2000 in Division 3. Our goals came from Sean McCarthy and West Bromwich Albion loanee Paul Mardon. This was to prove to be Mardon’s only goal in a green shirt.

Most goals in a single game: Seven, in our 2-5 defeat in September 2000.

Further interesting facts: We have won on each of our last three visits to Cheltenham in the EFL. Our only draw away to the Robins came in our Division 3 championship winning season of 2001-2. Paul Sturrock’s men fought out a 0-0 stalemate with Steve Cotterill’s ten men Robins in freezing conditions on Friday, November 9, 2001. Arguably the most memorable thing about the match involved referee Brian Curson, who mistakenly added ten minutes of injury time at the end of the first half.

Our upcoming match with Cheltenham will create a number of firsts: the first time that we have played the Robins on a Thursday; the first time that we have played them in December, let alone on Boxing Day and the first time that we have played at Cheltenham since their ground has been renamed the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.
