      Tip Reasoning

      Cheltenham are looking for a swift return to professional football after their relegation from League Two last season, and so far they are going about it the right way.

      They are in 2nd position in the Conference National, just a point adrift of leaders Forest Green Rovers and a point ahead of 3rd placed Dover Athletic.

      But the home side saw their unbeaten streak come to an end on Saturday as Hartlepool United knocked them out of the FA Cup.

      This was their first defeat in their last nine outings, and 19 matches in they have still only lost twice in the Conference National.

      At home they have won six of their ten home matches in all competitions this season, with only one of these ending in defeat.

      This doesn’t make good reading for the travelling Guiseley fans, but they will be buoyed by the back to back wins they have enjoyed prior to this match.

      This leaves them unbeaten in four Conference matches ahead of this game, with two wins and two draws giving them a return of eight points from a possible 12.

      Guiseley sit in 14th position in the league with 26 points from their opening 20 games, which I a fairly promising position considering they were promoted from the Conference North via the playoffs last season after finishing 5th in the table.

      This success is based around making themselves very difficult to beat, especially away from home. They have only lost twice in their eight away days in the league this season. But, on the flip side of the coin, they have only won once.

      Six of Cheltenham’s last eight games in all competitions have ended with fewer than three goals scored, whilst Guiseley’s defensiveness on the road has seen under 2.5 goals on six of eight occasions as well.

      Cheltenham’s recent goalscoring downturn, along with their strong defence and Guiseley’s defensive tactics on the road make odds of 1/1 for Under 2.5 Goals look excellent value. I do think Cheltenham will win though, so I’m also backing a 1-0 correct scoreline at 11/2.
