Well it`s been only 2 weeks since these two teams last met in the cup and not a great deal has changed Morecambe have had a disappointing home loss to Lincoln City and Cheltenham have drawn 1-1 away at Hereford.

So what do we know about Cheltenham? Well they play at the Abbey Business Stadium or as most people know it Whaddon Road. Their manager is Mark Yates who was appointed in December 2009 replacing Martian Allen.

Any Morecambe fans going to the game will not fail to notice that the Stagecoach Stand looks remarkably similar to the old main stand at Christie Park and even has a paddock not sure if you can get pie, peas and gravy though!
