4 wins and a draw from the last 5 games. 3 clean sheets in a row. Feels like we have finally hit some form. Also feels like we are still under the radar - we barely get a mention in the promotion thread.

But know Cambridge are no pushovers - beaten Northampton, Plymouth and Wycombe, and we had to come back from losing 2-1 at half time to win 3-2 last time against them.

Still I'm going for a 2-0 win :)

It's the best way to get promotion. Let the willy waving "big clubs" do their thing whilst you go about your business under the radar.

You're the best side I've seen down the abbey this season and I think you'll grab the last automatic place starting with a win against us this weekend.

We'll stuff them. 4-0.

Hard to know what to expect from us but Accy will no doubt come out of the traps quickly and put us straight under pressure. If we get out of the first half hour or so level, you never know.

Be good to have Ledson back as he and Dunne were beginning to build an understanding. Gives Berry more confidence to press forward etc.

Accrington were excellent at the Abbey earlier this season so we'll need to match that to get anything this weekend.

Worked in Accrington for almost a year in the 70's. U's potential victory on return to The Crown, The Commercial and the home of Holland's Pies will be central to a northern indulgence - taking in Wigan v Warrington, Thwaite's, Boddington's and ManUre v Everton + North of England v whoever in World Cup Final in some random Lancashire pub, topped off by Barrow AFC v Braintree at my beloved Holker Street.

It would be nice to put one over on the scouse irritation that is John Coleman but unlikely to happen, All part of the maturing process for a team that will delight us next season. I anticipate a disappointing 2-1 with Sir Jimmy starting from the bench and hope for a 1-3 triumph with Ryan Horne providing an assist on his debut from the bench.

It is uncharacteristic of me to say this but I reckon we'll win this one. I think Shaun Derry, for all his shortcomings,knows how to prepare for this kind of game and how to get a result.

Like most U's fans I would like to see some of our youngsters getting some game time, but I don't think it's going to happen, as something tells me Derry has a contract similiar to the one R Money had, ie a lot depends on results on final and table position.

I can't believe that the only picture the BBC have of Derry for their article on the game (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/35934908) is of him spitting?! :lol:

Any chance the game will be off with the rain? Be too late for me likely as my train is at 8.40 but hopefully be enough notice so we can go to Blackburn instead.

We where lucky get to get a point yesterday, thats for sure.

Only been a handful of games this season, but Cambridge were by far the best side I have seen.
