Cheltenham Town postpone Saturday's League Two fixture against Swindon Town on police advice.

Cheltenham Town have postponed their League Two fixture with Swindon Town on Saturday following police advice.

After this week's disorder in Gloucester and the surrounding towns, Gloucestershire Police have informed the Robins that they would be unable to staff the match.

"Obviously we're disappointed because Saturday was going to be a great occasion," said Cheltenham club secretary Paul Godfrey.

"However, security and safety at the match is paramount and we understand that, because of the need to focus police resources elsewhere, it will not be possible to deploy the number of officers that would normally be required for this fixture.

"For that reason, police have advised us that the match should be postponed on safety grounds," he added.

No new date has been set for the match.
