Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town will be looking to build on a splendid 4-0 win over Tranmere when they face Cambridge United on Saturday. The Red Devils have been impressive at home ground of late, with the team scoring eight goals in total in the previous two games at the People’s Pension Stadium, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Cambridge United.
The U’s, on the other hand, did well to beat Walsall on the road on Tuesday evening, with the team retaining second position in the standings. Cambridge United aim to overtake Newport in the first place, but beating the high-flying Red Devils on the road is easier said than done. Anyhow, a lively contest is on the cards at the People’s Pension Stadium as both teams have been in a thrilling form of late.
Highlighted Team (Cambridge United):
Cambridge United are an English football club that compete in League Two. The U’s play their home games at Abbey Stadium, the venue which was built back in 1923. Owned by Grosvenor Estates, Cambridge United’s home ground can hold up to 8,127 spectators.
The U’s wear amber and black jerseys and black shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and blue are the dominant colours of their away kit. Cambridge United won the FA Trophy in 2014, with the team making it to the FA Cup quarter-finals two times (1989/90, 1990/91). In the 1968-69 season, the U’s clinched the Southern League Cup title.
Cambridge United recorded their biggest league win in March 2007 as they outclassed Weymouth 7-0, and they repeated the success against Forest Green (2009) and Morecambe (2016). Peterborough United are regarded as the club’s main rivals, but they maintain rivalries with Northampton Town, Colchester United, Luton Town, Stevenage, and Histon as well.
