Our prediction for this League 2 match:
High-flying Cambridge United will be looking to build on a 5-0 win over Scunthorpe when they host Port Vale at their Abbey Stadium on Matchday 7. The league leaders are eyeing their third straight win in the League Two, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to watch in the home team will be Paul Mullin, who has been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season (7).
Port Vale, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Salford at home on Saturday, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Cambridge United. The Valiants have been having their ups and downs in the 2020/21 League Two campaign, and given Cambridge United’s attacking potential, home win should be considered. In their last meeting at Abbey Stadium the U’s defeated the Valiants 1-0.
Highlighted Player (David Amoo):
David Amoo is a professional football player who was born in Southwark, London, England on April 13, 1991. Amoo spent his youth career at the likes of Millwall and Liverpool, but nowadays he plays for League Two side Port Vale.
It has to be noted that the pacey winger played for the likes of Milton Keynes Dons (loan), Hull City (loan), Bury (loan), Preston, Tranmere Rovers, Carlisle United, Patrick Thistle, and Cambridge United as well before joining the Valiants in the summer of 2019. David Amoo made his League Two debut with Port Vale on August 3, 2019, in a 1-1 draw with Colchester United.
He scored his first goal for the Valiants in a 1-1 draw with Northampton Town seven days later. His primary position is a right winger, but he is often used as both left winger and second striker. David Amoo has dual citizenship (England/Nigeria).
Highlighted Team (Port Vale):
Nicknamed the Valiants, Port Vale are a professional club that compete in the League Two. Port Vale welcome their rivals at Vale Park, and they wear white and black kit when playing in front of home fans. Yellow, on the other hand, is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Valiants’ home ground, which was built in 1950, can hold up to 49,768 people. Championship side Stoke City are seen as one of the club’s fiercest rivals, but their rivalry is pretty healthy. The two teams first met on December 2, 1882, with the Potters emerging triumphant (1-0).
The Valiants maintain a rivalry with fellow League 2 club Crewe Alexandra as well. Speaking of the club’s titles, it has to be noted that Port Vale have won Football League Trophy on two occasions (1993, 2001). A 9-1 win over Chesterfield from September 24, 1932 is the club’s biggest triumph.
