Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After failing to win the previous six games in all competitions, Cambridge United will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Plymouth Argyle at their Abbey Stadium. Cambridge United are undefeated in the last four home games in the League Two, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s match against Plymouth Argyle.
The Pilgrims, on the other hand, have been producing excellent performances in the English fourth tier of late, with the team recording four wins in the last five league fixtures. Plymouth aim to climb to play-offs berth in the League Two standings, but beating Colin Calderwood’s men on the road is easier said than done. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Sam Smith, while Cambridge defenders should have Jamaica international Joel Grant at bay.
Highlighted Team (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
