Salford City vs Cambridge United
England – League 2
Date: Saturday, 12 October 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Peninsula Stadium (Salford).
The Ammies were dealt with a tough schedule, and likely they suffered due to it. But admirably, the team bounced back whenever they were presented with an opportunity to take on a team on level footing. As such, with them having the home advantage against Cambridge who’s winless in their prior three games in the competition, the hosts should come out on top this weekend.

Salford City vs Cambridge United Prediction
Colin Calderwood’s men made a mess of their home advantage the last day, as they let go of their one-goal lead in a three-minute period in the second half, where they conceded two quick goals. Though they pulled one back later to level the scoreline, the team had to settle for a point at the end.
Meanwhile, the same match-day, Graham Alexander’s men got back on track after their loss against Forest Green, with an admirable 0-3 win, and that too on the road.
Form clearly favors Salford, and on top of that, they are afforded the home advantage this weekend.
They were unbeaten in eight of their former eleven overall fixtures. And was so in four of their last six at home. On the other hand, their opposite number is winless in the former four straight ties and was so in eight of their last ten. The team also lost six of these match-ups, of which four had come in a row.
On the road, United remained winless in six of their preceding nine trips.
As current form, and home advantage clearly sides with Salford, the logical choice should be to back Graham Alexander’s men to come out on top.
