HEAD coach Mark Cooper will lead Forest Green out at Cheltenham Town on Saturday in front of a vociferous 978 travelling fans for the hotly anticipated Gloucestershire derby.

Forest Green announced the numbers on social media this evening in what is set to be a high-octane clash at the Jonny-Rocks stadium.

Meanwhile, Cheltenham Town manager Michael Duff has penned a new contract that will see him remain at the club until June 2023.
