Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury Town and Cambridge United square off against each other at Greenhouse Meadow in what is expected to be an exciting League One encounter. The Shrews are brimming with confidence following a 4-0 crushing of Burton, and a triumph over Cambridge United could see them rejoin the playoffs race. A man to watch in the home team will be Christian Saydee, who scored a brace in the last league match, while Julien Da Costa has overcome his injury.
Both Daniel Udoh and George Nurse, though, should miss out with injuries. The U’s, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the English third tier, and given Shrewsbury’s display in the triumph over the Brewers, we believe that gamblers from all around the world can find value in betting on the home side. To make things even worse for the away team, defender Steve Seddon limped off with injury in a 2-1 loss to Bristol Rovers. As a result, he will be out of action for six weeks.
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 (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.
