The Cambridge United boss Neil Harris does not have any fitness worries at all ahead of this game owing to a fully healthy group available to select from.
Team News: Cheltenham Town
Thanks to a mainly full-strength squad, there’s just the sole fitness issue for the Cheltenham Town gaffer Darrell Clarke to contend with. Robert Street (Knee injury) won’t be in action.
When taking everything into account, Cheltenham Town will have their work cut out to score against this Cambridge United lineup who we reckon will gain the upper hand.
We’re going for a very even contest with a 1-0 win for Cambridge United at the end of this game.
