Match Preview | Cambridge United

4 March 2022

Following Tuesday’s impressive performance against league leaders Rotherham United at Montgomery Waters Meadow, Shrewsbury Town are back on the road in Sky Bet League One on Saturday as they travel to the Abbey Stadium to face Cambridge United.

Steve Cotterill’s side were unlucky not to snatch all three points against the runaway leaders, with George Nurse's strike against the post just before the hour mark coming closest to breaking the deadlock. On the back of last Saturday’s convincing 2-0 away win over Burton Albion as well, Salop will go into the game against Cambridge with confidence flowing through the squad.

Cambridge are currently 13th in the league table and are without a win in their past two league games, losing away to both Oxford United (4-2) and Wycombe Wanderers (3-0). But so far, they’re having a good first season in League One following their promotion from League Two last season.

The return fixture took place at Montgomery Waters Meadow back in October. A Ryan Bowman hat-trick and a strike from Luke Leahy secured an emphatic 4-1 victory against Mark Bonner’s side.

Name: Cambridge United Football Club

Founded: 1912 (109 years ago) as Abbey United

Chairman: Paul Barry

Biggest Victory: 

  • 7-0 vs Morecambe, League Two, 2016
  • 7-0 vs Weymouth, Conference Premier, 2007
  • 7-0 vs Forest Green Rovers, Conference Premier, 2009

Biggest Defeat:

  • 0-7 vs Luton Town, League Two, 2017
  • 0-7 vs Sunderland, League Cup Second Round, 2002

Highest League Finish: 5th, Football League Second Division, 1991/92

One to Watch: Sam Smith

The 23-year-old has hit a bit of a purple patch of late, scoring five goals in his last five appearances which have put him level as Cambridge’s top goalscorer this season with 13 goals alongside Joe Ironside. Ironside had been out for a while with an injury but returned on Tuesday off the bench against Wycombe.

With Ironside coming back to fitness and Smith being in fantastic form, they could become a dangerous strike partnership for the rest of the season.

Match Report | Cambridge United 0-0 Shrewsbury Town

5 March 2022

Shrewsbury Town were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw against Cambridge United in a scrappy affair at the Abbey Stadium on Saturday.

Despite having several chances, Salop were unable to get the decisive touch and the points were shared in Cambridgeshire.

Shrewsbury dominated the first half and the majority of the chances falling to the away side. Tom Flanagan had an early chance when he met an Elliott Bennett corner with a header which forced Dimitar Mitov into a good save.

The best chance of the half fell to Ryan Bowman in the 18th minute when he got in front of his defender to flick on Tom Bloxham’s cross. Mitov was quick to it though and produced a great reaction save to tip it round the post.

The second half was a more even contest and both sides had more opportunities. Cambridge’s best chance didn’t come until the 72nd minute when a ball into the box found Sam Smith at the far post. All Smith needed to do was get his header on target for a certain goal however, he put his header over the bar. Salop then had an identical opportunity at the other end of the pitch nine minutes later with Dan Udoh this meeting Bennett’s cross but again, the ball went over the bar.

Luke Leahy then had a golden opportunity as the game entered the 99th minute when he met Bennett’s corner at the near post, however, Mitov did excellently to get down to his right and push it around the post for a corner.


Cambridge United: Dimitar Mitov (GK), George Williams, Paul Digby (C), Lloyd Jones, James Brophy (Shilow Tracey, 66’), Joe Ironside, Sam Smith (Harvey Knibbs, 83’), Harrison Dunk, Wes Hoolahan, Jubril Odkedina, Adam May
