Cambridge Will Have It Tough Against Bury If Lowe Continues With This Backline

After a 1-0 defeat against MK Dons only a month ago, life for those following Cambridge was probably not the easiest for those connected with the City most famous for its University.

Since the defeat to The Dons, there’s been an upturn in form for Joe Dunne’s side, yet Bury will hope to teach ‘The U’s’ a lesson when they travel down South tomorrow.

On the back off three superb wins on home turf against Dover, Fleetwood and Stevenage, the Shakers will hope to avoid a bout of homesickness when they meet a time lying 21st in League Two.

Despite a turn in form in which Cambridge have won last three consecutive home games, Ryan Lowe’s Bury will provide strong opposition.

Not least in taking on a team scoring for fun at the minute and what goals they are too. Eoghan O’Connell’s strike at home to Stevenage was one of many gems from a fine selection of goals during November, and the ever-loyal Shakers fans who will make the three hours or so trip tomorrow will hope for more of the same.

Not least watching another of Danny Mayor’s creative displays. The 30-year-old is one of several players who has helped get bums on seats at recent home games.

Yet despite all of Bury’s forward dynamism, the defensive showing hasn’t been too shabby either. Lowe’s switch to three at the back has worked wonders in recent weeks. A back three of Stokes, Aimson and Thompson have kept out opposition front lines. United top scorers Jevani Brown and George Maris will test their luck against a side ready to break into the playoffs.

Lying just a point behind Tranmere Rovers, the side Bury clinched promotion at four seasons ago, the taste of a repeat may look capable after a trip to the City of Education.
