Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Abbey Stadium pits together Cambridge United and Fleetwood Town, the two bottom-table sides. The U’s aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Oxford United and Leyton Orient and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the rock-bottom side. Sullay Kaikai should sneak into the starting XI after the Sierra Leone forward found the net in the FA Cup loss to Blackburn Rovers, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Cod Army, on the other hand, are eager to put an end to their three-game losing run, but given their poor winless run on the road, we do not believe that Cambridge United will have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the League One. Fleetwood defender Carl Johnston should recover in time to take part in Saturday’s encounter.
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.
