Can Gillespie build on his midweek brace?
PUNTERS looking for any signposts ahead of Cheltenham's clash with Portsmouth have no history to go on, as the sides have never previously met, but it could be a tight affair between two struggling teams.
Those who think it will be extremely tight can get 23/10 on a draw at Stan James, while Bet365 is offering 10/1 for a goalless encounter.
But the Robins will see this as a chance to climb the table and will fancy their chances of claiming all three points. A home win is 11/8 at Betfred – and if you fancy Cheltenham to boost their goal difference at the same time, you can get 22/1 at William Hill for a 3-0 victory.
Perhaps more realistically, Winner.com is offering 11/4 on the home side to win by a single goal.

Elsewhere, Ladbrokes is offering 4/1 on both teams scoring before Cheltenham go on to take all three points.
Steven Gillespie scored twice in midweek against Plymouth Argyle before the penalty shoot-out defeat, and he is priced at 11/2 with Ladbrokes to open the scoring today.
Meanwhile, a repeat of Tuesday's 3-3 draw is 50/1 with Stan James.
Portsmouth have yet to win away from home this season, which explains why they are 2/1 with Skybet to win this match, despite Cheltenham's lowly position.
But Pompey did score a couple of goals on their last trip on the road, and Paddy Power is offering 11/4 on the visitors grabbing another two this afternoon.
Punters expecting the away team to open the scoring can get 6/1 at Betfred on Patrick Agyemang hitting the back of the net first, while Tom Craddock's odds are 13/2 with the same bookie.
If you think that Cheltenham will go on to win the game after an even first half, you can get 6/1 on this outcome with BetVictor.com.
