Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Morecambe will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Cheltenham Town when they take on Cambridge United at Globe Arena. The U’s quickly bounced back from the EFL Trophy defeat to Rochdale, and, no doubt, the League Two triumph gave them a confidence boost. Spain international Carlos Mendes Gomes, who found the net in the season opener, is likely to keep his place in the starting XI.
Cambridge United, on the other hand, rolled over Carlisle United 3-0 at home in the opening match of the season. The visitors aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but it has to be noted that they will be without injured midfielder Liam O’Neil in Saturday’s showdown. Since Cambridge are not regarded as good travellers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
