Cambridge United form and stats

Cambridge United have collected 8 points from their League One home games so far after 2-2-2.

Cambridge manager M. Bonner and his team return home after a 2-2 draw away versus Crewe Alexandra (placed 22nd) in the League One. Late drama in the game against Crewe Alexandra as Cambridge United were trailing by a goal near the finishing line until Adam May popped out and made it level in the 90th minute. Midfielder Adam May was the best player on the team with a rating of 7.53 (out of ten) in that game. May scored one goal, hit the woodwork once, hit three key passes and dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times.

Ahead of that match, Cambridge lost 0-2 at home to Gillingham.

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the League One game versus Sheffield Wednesday in only three days. This game is also played here at Abbey Stadium.

Cambridge are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 8 goals in 6 games. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Cambridge defense is not exactly impregnable. 10 goals conceded from 6 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

Ipswich Town form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their League One travels is 1 win, 0 draws and 3 defeats.

Ipswich had fun at their own home (Abbey Stadium) last time out, beating Shrewsbury Town 2-1. Macauley Bonne and Conor Chaplin scored. Defender Cameron Burgess was the best team player with a rating of 7.43. Burgess won 9 of 13 duels.

Prior to that result Ipswich won their away game at Gillingham in the EFL Trophy. The scoreline was 2-0.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Ipswich manager P. Cook as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Portsmouth.

Ipswich are scoring more than one goal per away game on average, having accumulated 4 away goals from 4 games (in the league). Ipswich have conceded 6 goals in these games.

Head 2 Head

Statistics for the former four meetings between these two contenders are: one win for Cambridge United, two draws and one win for Ipswich Town. Over 2,5 goals: zero times; under 2,5 goals: four games.
