PREVIEW | Cambridge United v Yeovil Town

Glovers head to Cambridgeshire

14 December 2018

PPAUK

The green and whites head to Cambridge United on Saturday (3pm) looking to collect a much-needed three points in Sky Bet League Two.

Rhys Browne's opener at home to Forest Green Rovers last weekend wasn't enough to secure victory as Town now turn their attention to a trip on the road.

The Glovers sit two places and two points above United but will look to extend that gap following the visit to the Abbey Stadium.

Darren Way welcomed back Olufela Olomola from injury last time out and could be boosted further by the return to fitness of top scorer Alex Fisher who's resumed training. 

If the seven-goal striker does feature in the matchday 18 it'll reduce the injury list to Bevis Mugabi (shoulder), Omar Sowunmi (ankle), Nathan Baxter (hip), Diallang Jaiyesimi (knee), James Bailey (knee) and Alex Pattison (back).

Newest recruit Adel Gafaiti made his home debut last Saturday having recovered from a dead leg and is likely to continue alongside Gary Warren in Cambridgeshire. 

In all, Town's boss made six changes for the clash with Rovers but could be tempted to make alterations once again in a bid to pick up all three points. 

It will also mark the first match without assistant manager, Terry Skiverton, who relinquished his role on Thursday.

Head-to-head
Saturday will be the 12th competitive meeting between the two sides with the Glovers boasting six wins to Cambridge's four. 

Losing their last three trips to the Abbey Stadium, Town will look for a repeat of their only previous December visit which came in 2004. 

Battling back from 2-0 down, goals from Phil Jevons (x2), Darren Way, Lee Johnson and Andrejs Stolcers secured an emphatic 5-3 win. 

Officials
Peter Wright will take charge of his third game of the season involving Yeovil. 

Overseeing the 6-0 win at Newport County and the 2-1 loss at Morecambe, he'll be the man in the middle once again on Saturday. 

Mr Wright will be assisted by Christopher Kidd and Garry Maskell with Stuart Butler acting as fourth official.

REPORT | Cambridge United 0-0 Yeovil Town

Town earn point on the road

15 December 2018

PPAUK

Yeovil Town put an end to their streak of defeats with a hard earned 0-0 draw against Cambridge United in adverse weather in Cambridgeshire.

Faced with driving wind and rain in freezing conditions, both sides were restricted to a handful of chances in front of goal. 

Both goalkeepers had to be alert to pull off a smart save each but the spoilts were shared at the Abbey Stadium as the Glovers kicked off the busy Christmas period by halting their run of defeats. 

Heading to Cambridge determined to end a winless streak, Darren Way made two changes to the side that went down to Forest Green Rovers seven days previous. 

Reinforcing the backline by introducing Carl Dickinson for Enes Mahmutovic, last weekend's scorer Rhys Browne was rewarded with a start in place of Wes McDonald who suffered a recurrence of a hamstring problem to miss out completely. 

The latest injury to join the list, the winger joins Nathan Baxter (hip), Omar Sowunmi (ankle), James Bailey (knee), Alex Pattison (back), Diallang Jaiyesimi (knee) and Gabby Rogers (ankle) on the sidelines. 

With the conditions making it hard to produce a flowing affair, the opening 25 minutes produced a largely uneventful event. 

George Maris lined up a free-kick from 25 yards out which he hit into the wall on his first attempt and then fired over on the rebound.

A few minutes later Lewis had a go with a free kick as well, his effort beat the wall but went safely wide of Nelson’s goal as chances remained at a premium.

Looking bright whenever he got on the ball, Browne beat three men to cut in from the left but his shot was blocked before it even entered the penalty area. 

With a succession of free-kicks and throw-ins slowing down the tempo of the match, United had to wait until just before the break to call Nelson into meaningful action. 

Jabo Ibehre's cross picked out the late run of Maris in the middle, with his volley forcing Nelson to gather close to his post.

In the last act of the half, Ibehre had a strike at goal himself from a Harrison Dunk cross that lacked the accuracy to trouble Town's stopper.

Early into the second half Tom James had a speculative effort from a free kick from 35 yards out saved by Forde, as the wind and rain continued to swirl around the stadium. 

Shortly afterward Town had their first real chance of the game, as D’Almeida kept his shot from the edge of the area low and Forde saved with his feet to deny the Benin international an opener. 

Maris engineered himself a good chance to break the deadlock. Skipping into the area he drove a shot across Nelson’s but dragged it wide of the target.

On the hour mark Fisher replaced Jordan Green to make his first appearance since returning from injury suffered against Stockport County. 

Proving he hadn’t frozen up in the cold Nelson saved from Reggie Lambe as the winger shot from close in. 

Lewis spurned a golden chance to give Cambridge the lead, being played through onside the midfielder fired wide when one-on-one with Nelson.

Town were dealt a blow when Browne limped off injured with five minutes to go being replaced by Jake Gray.

Alefe Santos had a go from distance as Town looked to nick a late win but Forde got behind the shot as the points were shared in Cambridgeshire, providing Town with a platform to build on in the coming weeks.

Cambridge United: Forde; Halliday, Taylor, Darling, Dunk; Maris, Deegan, Lewis; Brown (Azeez 79'), Ibhere, Lambe (Amoo 86').

Subs not used: Mitov, Carroll, Taft, O'Neil, Davies.
