Our prediction for this League 1 match:
There will be fireworks when Cambridge United and Bolton take on each other at Abbey Stadium in the League One round 5. The U’s aim to build on a thrilling 3-0 win over Burton, with the team eyeing their only second triumph of the season. All Leon Davies, Kai McKenzie-Lyle, and Jack Lankester are rated doubtful for the game. The Trotters, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Lincoln and Oxford United.
Bolton have been producing excellent displays at the start of the season, but beating Cambridge United on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Abbey Stadium, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. In their last meeting at the venue the two teams played out a 1-1 draw. Both Liam Edwards and Xavier Amaechi are likely to miss the game with injuries for the visiting team.
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 (Doncaster):
Based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Doncaster Rovers are an English football club that compete in the League One. Keepmoat Stadium is the club’s home ground. The venue was opened on August 3, 2007 and it can hold up to 15,231 spectators.

Doncaster Rovers shared the spoils with Rawmarsh in their first ever game. The likes of Rotherham United, Barnsley, Grimsby Town and Scuntorpe United are considered the club’s main rivals.
