Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Abbey Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Cambridge United and Rotherham United, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The U’s sit in the 16th place in the standings, seven points clear of the relegation, and they head into the match following a 2-0 loss to Charlton. Both Knibbs and Lankester are pushing for a start.
The Millers, on the other hand, aim to retain top position in the standings. The league leaders are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions, and given Cambridge’s display in the defeat to Red Robins, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. Cambridge United defenders should have Freddie Ladapo at bay as the 28-year-old scored a brace in the triumph over Burton at the weekend.
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 (Rotherham):
Rotherham United are an English club that compete in the Championship. Rotherham United are located in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and they play their home games at New York Stadium and the capacity of the venue is 12,021.
The club was founded in 1925 as a merger between Rotherham County and Rotherham Town. The colour of Rotherham’s home kit was originally yellow and black, but nowadays they were red and white jerseys. The Millers made it to the FA Cup fifth round on two occasions (1952/1953, 1967/1968) and they have yet to play in the Premier League.
Rotherham United have won the Football League One twice (1950/1951, 1980/1981), but the club’s biggest success is participation in the 1960/1961 League Cup final. Sheffield United are regarded as Rotherham United’s fiercest rivals, but the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Doncaster could be considered Rotherham’s big rivals as well.
