Things are hotting up in League Two with Stevenage closing in on the top three as we head rapidly towards the business end of the campaign and their excellent 3-0 win against Portsmouth last weekend will have boosted confidence in the squad at a vital time in the campaign.
The Hertfordshire outfit have been pretty solid of late with just a solitary defeat in their last eleven outings and nine wins during that time, therefore they will be confident of collecting all three points when they make the relatively short journey to Cambridge United’s Abbey Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
For their part, Cambridge have been something of a mixed bag and this is reflected in their mid-table position. Shaun Derry’s men sit five points adrift of the play-off positions as things stand and barring a late surge in form they are unlikely to climb into the top-seven before the end of the season. Indeed the best that they can hope for is a finish in the top half of the league table and three points this weekend could send them closer to that aim.
We don’t think this will happen on Saturday however. Cambridge have won just once in their last seven league games at the Abbey Stadium and this doesn’t reflect too well given that visiting Stevenage have been pretty solid on the road recently with just one defeat in five away games. Indeed the visitors have managed twelve goals in their last five games with just two in reply and we’ll be backing them to not only collect the three points this weekend but also to keep a clean sheet into the bargain.
