Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Cambridge United will be aiming to move closer to the League One playoffs berth when they take on Gillingham on Matchday 10. The U’s have been scoring goals for fun of late, and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-minded approach in the midweek clash. All Leon Davies, Kai McKenzie-Lyle, and Jack Lankester are rated doubtful for the hosts. You should bear in mind that Cambridge United are after their third home win of the season.
The Gills, on the other hand, have registered no more than one triumph in the new League One campaign, and, as a result, they sit in the danger zone ahead of Tuesday’s game. Gillingham are not regarded as good travelers, and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to spoil Cambridge’s party at Abbey Stadium. Steve Evans should have a full squad to choose from this time out.
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 (Gillingham):
Founded back in 1893, Gillingham FC are an English club that compete in the League One. The Gills are well known for their blue shirts with black stripes, but they wear white shirts with a little yellow and blue, and yellow shirts when playing on the travels.
Priestfield Stadium is the club’s home ground, with the venue holding up to 11,582 spectators. Gillingham City have been playing at the stadium since the club’s foundation. Speaking of the club’s main rivals, over the years the Gills have built up a rivalry to Swindon Town. However, it has to be noted that Swindon fans do not consider Gillingham their biggest rivals.
Former goalkeeper Roy Hillyard is the Gillingham City player with the most appearances. The English shot-stopper played for Gillingham City from 1974 to 1991, making 655 appearances for the club. Brian Yeo is the team’s all-time top scorer, netting 149 goals in 387 appearances for the club from 1963 to 1975.
