Form Guide Cambridge United: LWLWL Barnsley: LDLWD United’s Approach The U’s suffered the blues on the road last time out, as fellow 2021 promotion pals Cheltenham Town secured a comeback 2-1 victory at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium. Adam May’s sumptuous strike gave Bonner’s men the initiative going into the break, but a below-par second half, which lacked any intensity, saw the Robins snatch the points. Speaking after the game, the Head Coach confessed: “They (Cheltenham) ran really hard, they played with a real intensity – much better than us tonight and they deserved to win.
Frustratingly, Wycombe Wanderers then ran riot with a reverse score four days later. Battling to a share of the spoils with Ipswich Town and then professionally dispatching Sheffield Wednesday 0-2, both away from home, kickstarted a small unbeaten run which continued last time out against Port Vale. As for what United can expect, Barnsley have a really strong core from defence to attack, obtaining a relentless press thanks to a relatively young squad. In truth, it’s a typical Duff side – hard-working, stubborn at the back and a nuisance in the attacking third. Bradley Collins is now an experienced head between the sticks, Mads Andersen and Robbie Cundy are renowned warriors, Luca Connell is receiving rave reviews in the middle of the park and James Norwood is a proven goalscorer at this level, who rotates well with determined figure Devante Cole.
For a side who thrive on generated momentum – when the Yorkshire side get going, they tend to steam to admirable distances. That very well could be in motion right now. Understandably, a new season in unfamiliar territory takes time to adapt to, but the Tykes are now showing signs of being hard to beat. Quite mirroring to the hosts, our visitors have had a tendency to react well to setbacks. Duff’s men responded from an opening day loss to Plymouth Argyle by downing Cheltenham Town 1-0. Although fellow relegated outfit Derby County took maximum points at Pride Park, a really imposing 3-0 win against Bristol Rovers raised hopes.
Joe Pritchard thought he'd found a goal for Stanley on 65 minutes, but Connor Ripley did well to make the save. The likes of Arthur Gnahoua and Caleb Watts were introduced by Derek Adams, as Morecambe looked to finish the game off in style, with Cole Stockton looking for a spectacular late goal to complete the win, but all of the damage was done in the first half as Morecambe secured a first league win since October on derby day, and signed off 2022 in pleasing style. Full-time: Morecambe 2 Accrington Stanley 0 Morecambe: Ripley, Melbourne (Mayor, 43'), Gibson, Rawson, Delaney, Stockton, Weir, Bedeau (Watts, 80'), Shaw, Cooney, Phillips (Gnahoua, 72').
