Match Preview | Cambridge United v Wanderers


It’s take two for Wanderers as they take the trip down to Cambridge United on Tuesday night in Sky Bet League One.

The original fixture was abandoned after ten minutes due to a waterlogged pitch but Ian Evatt’s men will be raring to go again in the first of three consecutive away games.

Manager quotes

Ian Evatt: “15 games left is almost a third of the season which is a lot of games. Just because the end of the season is two months away, it doesn’t mean it’s near. 15 games is worth a lot of points.

“We need to focus on today and be good today. Tomorrow we reset and do the same again and then come the end of the season I think we’ll be in a pretty good place.

“We just need to focus on what we can control. There’s still and awful lot of football to play, we’re still in a brilliant position and we just need to focus on the next challenge.”

Ian Evatt

Cambridge United Manager Neil Harris: “Bolton have come such a long way and have been coached in a style of play for a long time and they’re good at it.

“We know it’s a tough challenge but that’s what you want, to be playing the best teams and we’re in a great place and we want to play good teams when we’re in a good place.

An own goal and goals from from Kaikai, Bennett and former Wanderer Elias Kachunga earned United all three points on the road and they’ll be looking to replicate that performance in front of the home faithful on Tuesday night.
