Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Abbey Stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Cambridge United and Newport County. The U’s have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in the previous two league fixtures; therefore, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. Cambridge United are eyeing their third win of the season, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the match against the league leaders.
The Exiles, on the other hand, kicked off the new League Two campaign with a 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe, but then they recorded three consecutive wins in the English fourth tier. Newport County are eager to retain top position in the standings, and they are surely capable of matching Cambridge United, who have been anything but brilliant in the league of late. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Reggie Lambe):
Born in Hamilton, Bermuda, on February 4, 1991, Reggie Lambe is a 171-cm tall midfielder who plays for Cambridge United in the League Two. Lambe is a product of the Ipswich Town football school, and he continued playing for the Tractor Boys at the senior level.
The Bermuda international made his Ipswich Town debut on August 11, 2009, in the League Cup against Shrewsbury Town. Reggie Lambe played for the likes of Bristol City (loan), Toronto FC, Nykopings BIS, Mansfield Town, and Carlisle United as well before joining Cambridge United in 2018. Lambe made his debut with the U’s in a 3-0 loss to Port Vale on August 4, 2018.
Speaking of his international, the Cambridge United midfielder earned his first cap at the age of 16 against St. Kitts and Nevis in December 2007. His main position is a right midfielder, but he is capable of producing fine performances as left and attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Newport County):
Nicknamed the Exiles, Newport County are a Welsh club that welcome their rivals at Rodney Parade. Despite being based in Wales, the club compete in the English League Two. Newport County’s home ground was built in 1904, and it has a capacity of 7,850 people. The club’s home colours are amber shirts and black shorts, with the team wearing black, gray and amber kit when playing on the travels.
Newport County did well to win Welsh Cup in 1980, with the team making it to the FA Trophy in 2012. In 2008 the Latics managed to win the FAW Premier Cup, with the team beating fellow Welsh club Llanelli 1-0 in the title game.
Newport County recorded their biggest league win against Merthyr Town (10-0) on April 10, 1930, with the team suffering their heaviest defeat to Newcastle United (0-13) on October 5, 1946. The club’s record league attendance is 24,268. The record was set on October 16, 1937, when Newport County hosted Cardiff City in a Football League Third Division South game.
