A look at this weekend's opponents

This Saturday sees us return to the LCI Rail Stadium after two games on the road to take on Cambridge United.

The U’s currently sit 12th in the table on 50 points after 36 matches, which means they’re seven points off the play off places with a game in hand on most of the teams in the division.

Their current form could be described as inconsistent, with five losses, three wins and two draws from their last 10 matches.

Cambridge are managed by Shaun Derry, who was given the job back in November 2015 following on from the sacking of Richard Money.

Derry has previous managerial experience with Notts County, and he turned out for the likes of Sheffield United, Portsmouth, Crystal Palace, Leeds and QPR as a player.

United’s current leading marksman is Luke Berry, who has scored 12 league goals and five more in the FA Cup and EFL Cup.

Uche Ikpeazu is second on the goalscoring charts with six strikes in the league so far this season, with Piero Mingoia and Leon Legge both behind him on five League Two goals.

We have already faced Cambridge this campaign back in November, when a brace from Berry and another from Ikpeazu helped them on to a 3-1 win despite Billy Waters’ late consolation goal.

Overall we’ve played Cambridge eight times since 2001, winning three, drawing one and losing four times.
