When Cambridge United play Reading this weekend, they will be attempting to earn their third home victory in the English third division. Cambridge United may be proud of the start to their Sky Bet League One season after eking out a win by the skin of their teeth the previous term. They have nine points out of a possible 15. Visitors Reading are the underachievers in this case, as their problems both on and off the field over the previous few years have finally led to their relegation to the third tier for the first time in twenty years.
Cambridge United vs Reading
The hosts are in fifth place in the standings, seven spots ahead of Reading, which is currently in sixteenth. This is Cambridge United’s third straight year participating in this competition. In the past two seasons, they came nowhere close to being promoted to the second division, but their strong start to the current campaign will give them optimism.
In just five games, Mark Bonner’s team has already collected three victories. Given that they have won two of those games at home, they will be confident in their prospects of winning on Sunday.
Reading, their rivals, come into the match off a thrilling penalty shootout defeat to Ipswich Town in the League Cup and recent improvements in league play. After losing 2-1 against Exeter City in their previous league game, they are still in 16th place.
After nine straight seasons, Reading was compelled to leave the Championship last year. They had a shaky start to Football League One, losing their first two games, but recently, they have improved (two victories in their last three league games).
Reading has struggled to adjust to life in League One, losing three of their first five games after being demoted. The Royals’ off-field problems ensured they would never be a factor in the promotion battle this season, but their early performances have still been dismal.
The Royals have lost both of their away matches by a score of 0—to Port Vale and Exeter, respectively. They face a Cambridge team that has had a promising start to the season, which might make their dismal road record even worse.
Last season, Cambridge United’s defense was their major problem, but thus far, they have performed well in this area. In three of the first five league games, the home team maintained a perfect record. ”Under 2.5 goals” was the winning wager in four of those matches.
Defensively, reading oneself is not too horrible. In four of the visitors’ five league games thus far, they have allowed “under 1.5 goals.” Another justification for choosing the “under 2.5 goals” option is the fact that only two goals were scored in four of the contests.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
