Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Rotherham United welcome Cambridge United to their Aesseal New York Stadium in a highly-anticipated League One game. The Millers were not in action at the weekend, meaning that players should be fully fit for Saturday’s clash. Freddie Ladapo will be the man to watch in the home team despite failing to find the net in a 1-1 draw with Charlton before the international break.
The U’s, on the other hand, suffered a heavy 4-1 loss to MK dons in their last league match, and given their shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Millers. Fit-again midfielder Leon Davies is pushing for a start after overcoming his injury. In their last meeting at Aesseal New York Stadium Rotherham United defeated Cambridge United 1-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Adam Thompson):
Born in Harlow, England on September 28, 1992, Adam Thompson is a defender who plays for Bury in League One. Thompson started his youth career at Watford and after making 14 appearances for the Hornets at senior level, he moved to Southend United, signing a permanent deal with the club in January, 2014.
It has to be noted that he played for the likes of Brentford, Wycombe Wanderers and Barnet on loan as well before joining the Shakers. Adam Thompson has a short loan spell at Bradford City in the 2017/2018 season, but he made no more than nine appearances for the Bantams. Despite being born in England, Adam Thompson decided to represent Northern Ireland in international matches.
He made his debut with the Northern Ireland national team on February 9, 2011, coming from the bench in a 3-0 loss to Scotland. His main position is centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine showings at right-back 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.
