Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Cambridge United will look to put an end to their five-game winless run in the League One when they take on Shrewsbury Town on Saturday afternoon. The Yellows aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Barnsley and Burton and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Shrews. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Shrewsbury.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Northampton, but given their difficulties on the road, away win should not be considered this time out. Matt Taylor’s troops are on a four-game losing run on the travels in all competitions and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Cambridge United’s party at Abbey Stadium. Shrewsbury midfielder Tayor Perry limped off with injury in the last league match, with Elliott Bennett likely to step up.
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.
