Competition: League Two

Market: Cambridge United win

Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport

Looking to move one step closer to a third-tier spot for next season, Cambridge will welcome Stevenage to an empty Abbey Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Cambridge might have been hit with that shock 4-1 defeat against Exeter earlier in the month, The U’s have bounced back in an eye-catching fashion. With the teams around them in the promotion chase slipping up over the past week, Mark Bonner’s side still hold a two-point buffer at the top of the table and in pole position to clinch the League Two crown this season. With the mood in their camp still at a real high, the Cambridgeshire outfit were last seen in midweek picking up a 4-2 win against Leyton Orient on their travels. Claiming back-to-back fourth-tier wins over the past week, Bonner’s men have also lost just a single matchup since March 9th. Looking to extend their buffer at the top of the table this weekend, it’s worth keeping an eye out for leading marksman, Paul Mullin. Finding the net earlier in the week, the 26-year-old has racked up a staggering 29 goals so far this season.

As for the visitors, although Stevenage might have enjoyed an eye-catching run of form when heading into April, they have failed to keep up that momentum of late. Despite extending their League Two status, The Boro were last seen in midweek getting hit with a 1-0 defeat at home against Cheltenham Town. Without a win in their last four fourth-tier matchups and managing to muster just a single point on their sluggish patch, Head Coach Alex Revell also finds his squad in the midst of a three-match losing run. Enduring their worst blip since way back in October, it should also be highlighted that Stevenage have collected just a single win from their last six matchups on the road. In for what could be a tough trip to The Abbey Stadium this weekend, we’re backing a home win for the leading promotion-chasers on Saturday afternoon.
