Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Cambridge United and Cheltenham Town square off against each other at Abbey Stadium in an eagerly-awaited League One game. The Yellows aim to build on a 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town as their clash with Bolton was abandoned due to a waterlogged pitch. Cambridge United are eyeing their eighth home win of the process, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. The opposition back-line should have Montserrat striker Lyle Taylor at bay as the 33-year-old scored a brace against the Shrews, while Harrison Dunk remains in the recovery room.
Darrell Clarke’s men, on the other hand, are stuck in the relegation zone and given their three-game losing run in the English third tier, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. As for the away team, experienced forward Matt Taylor is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in a 3-1 loss to Wycombe.
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.
