Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cambridge United quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Crawley, with the team beating Salford at home in their last league match. The U’s, though, were more than fortunate to beat the Lions, who created a number of clear-cut opportunities to score in the Abbey Stadium clash. Cambridge aim to overtake Newport in the top position in the standings, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match.
The newcomers, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Grimsby in their last league fixture, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Cambridge’s party at Abbey Stadium. You should bear in mind that Cambridge defeated Barrow in each of their previous seven meetings in all competitions. A man to watch in the home team will be Paul Mullin, who has netted 12 goals so far this term.
Highlighted Team (Barrow):
Founded back in 1901, Barrow is an English club that competes in the League two, the fourth tier of the English football system. The Bluebirds are well known for their blue shirts with white details, but yellow is the dominant colour of their away jersey. Barrow play home games at Holker Street, the stadium which can hold up to 5,045 spectators.
The venue was opened in 1909, and it has to be noted that no fewer than 16,874 people attended the FA Cup match between Barrow and Swansea in January, 1954. The Bluebirds have won two FA Trophies (1989/90, 2009/10), with the team lifting the Lancashire Senior Cup trophy in the 1954/55.
The likes of James Bell, Jim Collins, Andy McLaren, Jimmy Mulholland, Jackie Robertson, Barry Diamond, and George King are the most notable footballers who played for Barrow in the past. It has to be noted that the Bluebirds have never competed in the English top flight.
