Draw

A mediocre performance against Oxford United places Cambridge at a disadvantage coming into this match while Swindon produced a strong performance to overcome their pre-season blues and struggles. Even though Swindon’s win was against relegation threatened Scunthorpe, there is no reason to see why they can replicate a similar performance to secure a third consecutive win over Cambridge. However, this will be the first meeting between Cambridge and Swindon since December 2019 when both clubs were in League Two.

Total goals over 2.5

Swindon were offensively great against Scunthorpe United and they created plenty of opportunities in the final third. This was exactly missing from Cambridge’s game against Oxford and Mark Bonner’s men had to rely on a late penalty to get anything out of this match. This performance is likely to act as a kick in the back seat for Cambridge, who can be expected to improve.

Goals from both teams – yes

Swindon were extremely good going forward in their opening league match against Scunthorpe. The competition from Cambridge is expected to be on a different scale, but Swindon’s confidence levels are likely to be much higher than the home team.

Cambridge

The expectations of a struggle throughout the campaign were once again exposed in the opening match against Oxford, as Cambridge could only struggle and get a 1-1 draw. There has to be a massive improvement from the team if they are to survive after having just reached League One. There are no injuries or suspensions for Mark Bonner ahead of this game.

Swindon

After having had a summer of uncertainty and troubles, Swindon fans were delighted to see their team produce a strong performance on the opening day. However, the objective might still be to avoid relegation at any cost, as things can still go wrong for Swindon. Ben Garner is expected to be without Ben Gladwin for this match.
