This time we'll be taking our two new signings, Michael Wylde and Jake Moult with us but following the win at Crawley it seems pointless in changing a winning side so I think they'll be on the bench at the very least. We could be without Chris MacKenzie after he limped off during the first half with a twisted ankle. Dean Coleman stepped in and it's thought that arrangement will continue at Cambridge.
Utd will be without their usual keeper too after Danny Potter got his marching orders for a professional foul on Ebbsfleets John Akinde last Monday. Defender Mark Peters stepped in because of the lack of a spare keeper on the bench so this week the Utd manager, Jimmy Quinn, had to go out and bring one in quickly.
The only one he could get was an untried youngster from Reading - 18yr old Alex McCarthy. We should be able to give him a baptism of fire.
Also missing for them will be the former Telford defender Mark Albrighton. He'll be serving the first of his two game bans for ten yellow cards.
Two players went out on loan to other clubs this week. Mark Convery on loan to Weymouth until end of season and Jordan Collins to Heybridge Swifts. They also have long term injuries to Daniel Chillingworth, Lee McEvilly, Darren Quinton and Michael Hyem.
There will be three players facing old clubs on either side. Wayne Hatswell is now with Cambridge following his transfer there at the end of January and we have Darryl Knights back at a club that he spent a few weeks on loan with. Also Jonny Harkness played for them a few years back but he doesn't figure in Mark Yates' plans any longer.
This game is going to be a bit tougher than Crawley with Cambridge going for the play-offs but we have a good record against them and I expect that to continue. But only if we go with an attack minded look to the team. Play just a lone striker and we'll be exposed at the back too often and come back with nothing.
