After almost making sure of our League tenancy against Huddersfield we will be able to totally make sure against Cambridge tomorrow.  We beat then there last season and they're no better this so there's no real reason why we can't come back with all three points and a big grin on our faces.

For this game we will now be without Ian Foster now that he's returned under a cloud to Chester City but we should have Dean Keates back in the frame after missing the last four games through a mixture of suspension and injury.

We all know that Dean Bennett and Kenny Coleman will be missing after both undergoing surgery on their injuries this week and we will also be without Adam Willis (neck).

I don't expect to see much change from the side that beat the Terriers but if Scott Rickards doesn't replace Foster then I don't think we'll see him at Aggborough again.  I just get the feeling that he's out of favour and his time at Aggborough is almost over.

As mentioned at the top Cambridge are having another disappointing season and look to be in this League for a couple more years yet.  I don't mind, it's a nice place to spend the weekend.

They recently sacked John Taylor after he failed to deliver and have now somehow acquired the services of the ex Cameroons manager, Claude Le Roy and his compadre Herve Renard.  It's early days and his priority will be to ensure League status, just like Jan, but he's already starting to name a younger line-up and is discarding old timers like Mark Venus.

The ex Wolves forward has just come back from Dagenham after his loan spell was cut short through injury so he won't be facing us.  Also not up against us will be Andy Duncan and Justin Walker who are both recovering from groin and knee problems respectively.

Adam Tann should be fit after he was stretchered off after colliding with a post in their 2-0 defeat at Doncaster on Monday.

In recent weeks most of the Cambridge goals have come from Luke Guttridge and he's made an impression on the scouts and has been training with Charlton Athletic this week.

I'm confident about this one.  Three points!
