Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Abbey Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Cambridge United and Burton Albion, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Cambridge United aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail on Matchday 4. Defender Greg Taylor, who limped off with injury in the midweek clash, is unlikely to feature against Burton. You should bear in mind that the U’s are eyeing their first win of the season.
The Brewers, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record intact. Burton look unstoppable at the start of the season, and seeing that they defeated promotion-chasing Sunderland on Tuesday evening, away win should be considered. Experienced attacker Kane Hemmings is rated doubtful for the game. In their last meeting at the venue Burton defeated Cambridge 3-2.
Highlighted Player (Liam O’Neil):
Born in Cambridge, England on July 31, 1993, Liam O’Neil is an English footballer who plays as both defender as midfielder for Cambridge United in the League Two. O’Neil is a product of the Cambridge United football school, but he played for Histon during his youth career as well.
In the summer of 2012 he joined WBA youth academy, and it has to be noted that he made three appearances for the Baggies at senior level in all competitions. Liam O’Neil played for the likes of VPS and Scunthorpe United on loan as well before joining Chesterfield in 2015.
After scoring two goals in 45 appearances for the club in the league, O’Neil moved to Cambridge United in the winter of 2017. As his mother comes from Wales, O’Neil is open to play for the Wales national team, but he has yet to earn a cap with the Dragons.
Highlighted Team (Burton):
Burton Albion are one of the four clubs that secure promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. The Brewers welcome their rivals at Pirelli Stadium, the venue that was opened in 2005. The capacity of the stadium is 6,912, while the seating capacity of the venue is 2,034.
Burton Albion won the FA Trophy in 1987, with the team winning Football League Two in 2015. During the club’s non-League period, the Brewers’ local rivals were Nuneaton Borough, Tamworth, Stafford Rangers and Gresley Rovers, but while they were playing in the Football League the club’s rivals were Crewe, Port Vale, Notts County and Chesterfield.
Derby County are considered Burton Albion’s rivals as well, but the rivalry with the Rams is rather friendly. The colour of Burton Albion’s home kit is black and yellow, while they wear white and grey jerseys on the travels.
