Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Abbey Stadium will host Tuesday’s Championship game between Cambridge United and Wycombe Wanderers. The U’s aim to build on back-to-back wins over AFC Wimbledon and Ipswich Town, but Wycombe will pose a much bigger threat for the Chairboys than their previous rivals. Greg Taylor remains in the recovery room, but he should be the only absentee in the home side.
Wycombe, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Doncaster which saw them stay in the playoffs race. The Chairboys want this win more than Cambridge United, and we predict that the visitors will emerge triumphant in the postponed fixture. Sullay Kaikai has yet to overcome his injury, but there are no fresh selection worries in the away side. In the first half of the season Wycombe Wanderers outplayed Cambridge United in the first half of the season.
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 (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
