Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cambridge United will be aiming to build on a thrilling 5-0 win over Morecambe when they host Tranmere Rovers at their Abbey Stadium. The U’s looked like an unstoppable machine at the weekend, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to return to the League One. A man to watch in the home team will be veteran Wes Hoolahan, who opened his goal-scoring account in the 5-0 crushing of Morecambe.
Tranmere, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-0 loss to Cheltenham Town on day 2, and seeing that they have yet to find the net in the 2020/21 League Two campaign, we are not tempted to put our money on the visitors. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Cambridge United are high on spirits ahead of Saturday’s football match.
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 (Tranmere):
Based in Birkenhead, Merseyside, Tranmere Rovers are a professional club that compete in the League One. Tranmere were founded back in 1884 under the name of Belmont FC, with the football arms of cricket clubs Lyndhurst Wanderers and Belmont coming together. The club recorded their first win later in 1884 as they outclassed Brunswick Rovers 4-0.
Nowadays Tranmere Rovers play their home games at Prenton Park, the venue which can hold up to 15,567 people. The Rovers wear white shirts and blue shorts in home matches, but back in the 19th century orange and red were the dominating colours on their kit.
Tranmere fans see Bolton Wanderers as the club’s main rivals, but they have built a small rivalry with Chester City and Everton as well. The Prenton Park outfit did well to make it to the League Cup final in the 1993/1994 season, but Aston Villa proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
