Cheltenham Town video: Jombati relishing chance to face Pienaar and Baines
The prospect of trying to shackle one of the best left-sided combinations in the country holds no trepidation for Cheltenham Town right-back Sido Jombati.
Everton's England international left-back Leighton Baines and South African star Steven Pienaar have attracted widespread praise for their Premier League displays.
Jombati grew up watching Everton play on television in his native Portugal and, until last season, was playing non-league football with Weymouth, Basingstoke and Bath.

He now wants to test himself against the leading lights and said he would be disappointed if David Moyes rests any of his biggest names.
"Of course I want both of them to play because it's a chance to test myself and I think everyone else at Cheltenham will feel the same," Jombati said.
"The best player I have played against so far was probably Aaron Lennon last season for Tottenham, who was so quick and confident.
"Playing against players like this is good for me and good for the club."
Jombati is full of admiration for the job Moyes has done in his decade at Everton, working with a relatively limited budget, but repeatedly guiding the club into the upper reaches of the top flight.
"He took Baines, worked him out and made him the player he is now, helping him reach the England team," Jombati said. "He brought Pienaar back from Spurs and signed people like Fellaini and they are now two of the best players in the country. He signs lesser known players and makes them well known."
Jombati generally prefers Saturday afternoon kick-offs to midweek matches, but he said tonight's televised game is one to savour.
"I usually like 3pm matches, but this one could be played at midnight or 1am, I wouldn't care!" Jombati joked.
