Swindon vs Cambridge United Prediction
Swindon dropped points for the first time in eight games after Forest Green mustered a stellar comeback to hold them to a 2-2 draw on the road. Nevertheless, the hosts are still holding to the top spot at the moment, and are sporting a three-point cushion over nearest foes Exeter as well.
On the other hand, Cambridge United were at the losing end of a 3-2 scorecard against Leyton Orient in their most recent clash at home. Despite trailing by three goals at the break, in that latter matchup, the visitors showed promise after the restart and found the back of the net twice.
However, the guests failed to find an equalizer and ultimately made the trip back home empty-handed. It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have just one win to boast of from their last ten games in all competitions. To pile on even more misery, Cambridge United are without a taste of success in their past six outings in the fourth division.
In sharp contrast, Swindon have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their last five League two clashes here. As such, Cambridge United have little or no chance of salvaging even a point this week.
Furthermore, the hosts have been hard to breach this term at home. They have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four games, and have conceded just once in the process as well.
Meanwhile, Cambridge United have not looked sharp in the final third, especially on the road, and have scored no more than two goals from their past five outings.
Taking into account that all of their last three h2h meetings here have also been low scoring affairs, expect Swindon to pick up the win, with a goal or two at the most.
