Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Abbey Stadium when Cambridge United and Sheffield Wednesday square off against each other in the League One round 14. The U’s do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team losing each of their last three league fixtures, and, as a result, the bookies see them as underdogs in Saturday’s showdown. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Wednesday.
The Owls, on the other hand, are still regarded as one of the main favourites for promotion, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-two finish. Darren Moore’s troops, though, impressed in a 3-0 crushing of Cheltenham at the weekend, which is probably the main reason why away win should be considered. All Mark McGuinness, Akin Famewo, Dennis Adeniran, and George Byers have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away side.
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 (Sheffield Wednesday):
Sheffield Wednesday are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Sheffield (South Yorkshire). The Owls compete in the English second tier (Championship) and they play their home matches at Hillsborough.
The venue was the scene of the Hillsborough disaster which occurred in 1989 when 96 Liverpool supporters were crushed to death in the FA Cup semi-final. It has to be noted that the World Cup (1966) and the Euro (1996) matches were played at Hillsborough.
Sheffield Wednesday have won four First Division trophies (1902/2903, 1903/1904, 1928/1929, 1929/2930) and they finished the 1960/1961 campaign in second place in the standings. The Owls have clinched three FA Cup trophies (1896, 1907, 1935), with the team winning the League Cup in 1991.
Sheffield Wednesday defeated English giants Manchester United (1-0) in the title game. Sheffield United are regarded as the Owls’ main rivals and the two teams face each other in the Steel City derby.
