Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Abbey Stadium will host midweek game between Cambridge United and Salford City, the two teams who sit in the middle of the table ahead of Matchday 30. Cambridge United have been struggling to find their best form in 2020, with the team suffering four defeats, while sharing the spoil with Morecambe in the new year. Colin Calderwood’s troops are eager to get back on course, but Tuesday’s game against Salford City will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
The Lions, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Oldham Athletic they dropped a one-goal advantage in the dying minutes of the match. Anyhow, Graham Alexander’s troops, who defeated Forest Green in their last away game, are surely capable of spoiling Cambridge United’s party at Abbey Stadium as the hosts have been totally out of form of late.
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 (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
