Match Preview: Cambridge United

4 April 2021

Rovers entertain table topping Cambridge United on Easter Monday at Prenton Park in a 3pm kick off.

A disappointing afternoon ended in defeat in Gloucestershire against Cheltenham Town on Friday so the lads will be eager to react well this coming Monday.

Keith Hill’s men currently occupy the 4th position in League Two, one point outside of the automatic promotion places.

Cambridge United, managed by Mark Bonner, are flying high at the summit of the league standings. Their last six games have resulted in five wins and one defeat.

The reverse fixture earlier in the season ended in a 0-0 draw with a late James Vaughan goal controversially being ruled out for offside.

Team News

Keith Hill has reported no new injury concerns from Friday’s game. 

James Vaughan and Scott Davies remain the only absentees.

One to watch 

Striker, Paul Mullin

With 29 goals in all competitions to his name this season, Paul Mullin is definitely a player Rovers will need to nulify on Monday.

The striker began his career at Huddersfield Town but it was at Morecambe where got his first taste of Football League action. 25 goals in 122 appearances for The Shrimps caught the eye of Swindon Town who bought him for an undisclosed fee in 2014.

Following one season at Swindon, Micky Mellon persuaded the Scouser to make the move to Prenton Park. Mullin’s appearances in a white shirt were limited due to the fine form of James Norwood in the 2018-19 season. Half way through the next campaign in League One, Mullin made the loan switch to Cambridge United before the season was curtailed.

That move became permanent in the summer of 2020 and Mullin settled in right away at The Abbey. The 26 year old is enjoying the best season of his career so far in front of goal, breaking the Cambridge record for amount of goals in one season. Rovers managed to keep him quiet in the reverse fixture and will be hoping for more of the same on Monday
