Cheltenham Town on away loss to SWFC at Hillsborough Stadium on Saturday. Both SWFC and Cheltenham Town arrived on the back of wins. SWFC were looking to continue their good run after winning their previous two matches in the competition. The most recent was against the Port Vale away (1-0), the other to Wycombe Wanderers at home (3-1). Cheltenham Town, meanwhile, had been hopeful of extending their winning run, after a 2-0 victory against Shrewsbury Town. SWFC and Cheltenham Town currently occupy 3rd and 17th spots in the table, with 26 points and 14 points respectively after 13 matches.

The Owls started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, with an early goal from Josh Windass in the 3rd minute, ending the first half 1-0.

SWFC once more applied the pressure in the second half and were rewarded, with a goal from Barry Bannan in the 83rd minute. However they weren’t finished yet and Fisayo Dele-Bashiru made it 3-0 just before the full time to give a final score of 3-0.

Substitutions for SWFC included Fisayo Dele-Bashiru and Mark McGuinness for Alexander Mighten and Michael Smith, respectively. Cheltenham Town brought on Daniel N`Lundulu, Charlie Brown, Elliot Bonds, Tom Bradbury and Daniel Adshead, to replace Christian Norton, George Lloyd, Caleb Taylor, Ryan Broom and Taylor Perry.

The referee booked four players from Cheltenham Town, Lewis Freestone, Daniel N`Lundulu, Taylor Perry and Sean Long.

SWFC will next play Cambridge Utd away, with Cheltenham Town facing Bristol Rovers at home.
