Cambridge vs Cheltenham – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Cheltenham have taken just one point from their last four away fixtures ahead of their trip to play Cambridge on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Cambridge to Win

With both clubs hovering in mid-table limbo, Saturday’s final day clash between Cambridge and Cheltenham is the very definition of a late-season dead rubber, though we’re backing the hosts to sign off in style at Town’s expense. Cambridge inflicted Cheltenham’s joint-worst defeat of the campaign when they battered them 5-0 in December and the U’s should be able to draw enough confidence from that result to post another victory on Saturday.

Over 1.5 Cambridge Team Goals

Cheltenham have looked alarmingly leaky on the road of late where they have conceded 13 goals in their last four assignments and with their backline already dreaming of beaches and hammocks, they could be torn asunder again at Cambridge. Only two clubs in League One have shipped more away goals overall than Cheltenham in 2021/22 and a stake on the hosts in the over 1.5 team goals market looks a plum choice with the factors aligned.

Joe Ironside to Score Anytime

Joe Ironside smashed home a superb second-half hattrick when Cambridge obliterated Cheltenham 5-0 back in December and the attacker could punish the same defence in Saturday’s rematch. Ironside has notched 14 goals in League One in total this season and the 28-year-old stands out as a prime candidate to back in the anytime goalscorer market again this weekend.

Cambridge vs Cheltenham Match Preview and Team News

Cambridge

Harrison Dunk, Greg Taylor, Kai McKenzie-Lyle and Jensen Weir are all listed as injured for Cambridge, while Sam Sherring remains a doubt. Lloyd Jones was sent off after just 12 minutes of the U’s clash with Sunderland last weekend and the defender is suspended for Saturday as a result. Cambridge eventually lost that fixture 5-1 as they struggled to compete with ten men.

Cheltenham

Ben Williams and Dan N’Lundulu have both been ruled out for Cheltenham, though midfielder Matty Blair will hope to return to the matchday squad. Town can leapfrog Cambridge on the final day of the campaign with a win at the Abbey Stadium, though a defeat could see them replaced in 15th spot by Burton.
