Defender Greaves is “buzzing” to be competing for Cheltenham Town

Cheltenham Town defender Jacob Greaves admits he is “buzzing” and ready to take his chance as the team push for automatic promotion.

In Saturday’s encounter against Port Vale, Greaves helped his defensive team to keep a clean sheet.

At the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, the home side had to keep out 12 shots from Port Vale. Greaves explains how it didn’t run as normal for The Robins.

“I think it was a scrappy game from both teams and there wasn’t much quality in it. That’s unlike us, normally at home we’re moving the ball around, but it wasn’t to be today. We just made sure that if we didn’t win the game, we kept the clean sheet,” Greaves said.

“Thinking back, I could have been a bit more patient and tidier on the ball. We tried to play a little bit longer but I think we took it too literally,” Greaves continued.

“I’m buzzing. It’s disappointing for the team with the injuries but I’ve got a chance now to come back into the team and do well. When I found out I’d be playing, I was delighted to get back into the regime for the match.”
