Cambridge United vs Wycombe Wanderers Match Analysis & Prediction
18/04/2023 9:45 pm
Cambridge United can move out of the relegation zone with a win over Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday evening. The visitors, meanwhile, need all three points to stay in playoff contention.
Cambridge United have turned things around by claiming 10 points from an unbeaten run of four matches in recent weeks, including a vital victory against their local rivals Peterborough United at the weekend.
Strikes from Harrison Dunk and Sam Smith on either side of halftime provided Mark Bonner’s side with an invaluable victory against their local rivals Peterborough United at the weekend, moving them level on points with 20th-placed Oxford United.
Wycombe’s playoff hopes took a hit on Saturday as they went down 1-0 at relegation-threatened Morecambe.
The Chairboys had 20 shots and 11 corners but couldn’t find a way past Connor Ripley in goal. Finally, Cole Stockton scored a dramatic winner with only one minute of normal time remaining on the clock.
The loss leaves Wycombe five points behind sixth-placed Peterborough with only four matches of the season remaining for both teams, meaning the Chairboys will surely require maximum points if they are to reach the playoffs for a second successive campaign.

Cambridge United Team News
Cambridge will be without Adam May due to a serious knee injury, and it is unlikely that manager Steve Evans will make any changes from the squad that played so well in beating Peterborough United at the weekend.
That means Joe Ironside may have to settle for a place on the substitutes bench again after struggling this season after hitting double figures in his previous two campaigns for the U’s.

Wycombe Wanderers Team News
Wycombe could shake things up for their visit to Newport County, with Sam Vokes and Gareth McCleary set to return to the starting XI. However, Chem Campbell and Tjay De Barr may drop out of the squad in favor of the two experienced players who would bring a wealth of quality to Wycombe’s attack as they look to keep pace with the top six.
