Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Charlton will look to build on a thrilling 5-1 win over Plymouth when they take on Cambridge United in the League One round 5. The Red Robins proved their worth in the midweek triumph, and it is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping. A man to watch in the home team will be No. 9 Jayden Stockley, who opened his goal-scoring account on Tuesday, while Chuks Aneke remains in the treatment room.
The U’s, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Portsmouth, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Mamadou Jobe continues to miss out with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away team. In their last meeting in London Charlton Athletic recorded a routine 2-0 win over Cambridge United, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Jake Forster-Caskey ):
Born in Southend-on-Sea, England on April 25, 1994 Jake Forster-Caskey is a midfielder who plays for Charlton Athletic in the League One. Forster-Caskey started his both youth and senior careers at Brighton & Hove Albion and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 67 league appearances for the Seagulls first team.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons and Rotherham United, the English footballer signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Charlton Athletic in the winter of 2017. Jake quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the capital club, scoring 5 goals in 43 appearances in the 2017/2018 League One campaign.
However, he was out of contention for most of the 2018/2019 season with a serious knee injury. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and left midfielder as well.
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.
