Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cambridge United and Mansfield Town, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2020/21 League Two season, face each other at Abbey Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Wednesday’s program. Cambridge United aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in all competitions, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to do so.
The Yellows, on the other hand, aim to build on the hard-fought FA Cup win over Dag & Red. Mansfield are on a three-game winning run on the road in all competitions, but seeing that Cambridge United are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Paul Mullin, who has netted 13 goals in 13 appearances in the League Two this season.
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.
