Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Cambridge United will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town when they take on Bolton Wanderers in the League One round 18. The Yellows have been in a fine form of late, but they need to start winning on a regular basis if they are to avoid relegation. The opposition back-line should have Lyle Taylor at bay as the Montserrat international scored a brace in the last league match. Tuesday’s game comes too early for Harrison Dunk, who is closing in on a return, while James Brophy is pushing for a start.
Bolton, on the other hand, aim to climb to the automatic promotion berth. The promotion-chasing visitors have recorded three wins in the previous four away games and that is probably the main reason why we are going to place our bets on Ian Evatt’s troops. As for the away side, Ricardo Santos is a major doubt, while both Will Forrester and Randell Williams remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Team (Cambridge United):
Cambridge United are an English football club that compete in League Two. The U’s play their home games at Abbey Stadium, the venue which was built back in 1923. Owned by Grosvenor Estates, Cambridge United’s home ground can hold up to 8,127 spectators.
The U’s wear amber and black jerseys and black shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and blue are the dominant colours of their away kit. Cambridge United won the FA Trophy in 2014, with the team making it to the FA Cup quarter-finals two times (1989/90, 1990/91). In the 1968-69 season, the U’s clinched the Southern League Cup title.
Cambridge United recorded their biggest league win in March 2007 as they outclassed Weymouth 7-0, and they repeated the success against Forest Green (2009) and Morecambe (2016). Peterborough United are regarded as the club’s main rivals, but they maintain rivalries with Northampton Town, Colchester United, Luton Town, Stevenage, and Histon as well.
