Date set for Cheltenham Town’s Checkatrade Trophy tie against Leicester City

Cheltenham Town’s Checkatrade Trophy second round match against Leicester City will be played on Tuesday January 10th.

The tie was originally scheduled to be played on Tuesday December 6th, but a new date for the match was set as Leicester and their Under-19s side are in Portugal during that week.

The Foxes senior side take on FC Porto in the Champions League on December 7th while their U19s face the same opposition in the UEFA Youth League.

Leicester were deemed to be unable to field three separate sides in the same week and the fixture was moved.

The rescheduled second round clash will now take place alongside third round matches, with the fourth round set to be played two weeks later.

The Robins made it through to the knockout stages after topping the Northern Group A ahead of Blackpool, Everton and Bolton Wanderers.
