A late push by Cambridge United could see them close the gap on the League Two play-off places, however their recent inconsistencies have cost them dearly. Shaun Derry’s men are clearly capable of grinding out some decent results as demonstrated when thrashing Carlisle United to the tune of 3-0 at Brunton Park earlier this month, however they have generally been hit and miss of late and this doesn’t bode too well ahead of tonight’s trip to Lancashire.
Hosts Accrington Stanley have relatively little to play for except pride tonight with the relegation zone far enough away to be of little concern and the side having no realistic chance of making it into the play-offs as things stand. Their form at the Crown Ground has been pretty impressive recently however with their last home defeat coming in mid-December. Since then they have managed four draws and five wins in their last nine home matches and we believe that they will extend this unbeaten run by collecting all three points this evening.
It’s hard to envisage which Cambridge United will actually turn up tonight, however given their inconsistencies it is hard to back them to manage anything in this match. They put three past Carlisle United within a thirty-minute spell but subsequently scored just once in their next three outings. As such, we don’t expect the visitors to threaten the home goal too much tonight and with that in mind, an Accrington Stanley win-to-nil looks just the ticket at odds of 3/1 with Sky Bet.
