📝 Match Preview: Cambridge United (A)

All you need to know as City head to the league leaders

9 April 2021

Exeter City face a tough test this Saturday when they face league leaders Cambridge United at the Abbey Stadium.

The table-topping U's had their four match winning run ended on Easter Monday when they were held to a 1-1 draw with Tranmere Rovers, but they still remain two points clear at the top of the Sky Bet League Two table - thanks in part to 30-goal striker Paul Mullin. Mullin recently broke the record for most goals in season by a United player. 

City were held to a goalless draw by Mansfield Town on Monday and have won one of their last six matches in the league. 

MATT TAYLOR'S THOUGHTS 

"It's a game you have to relish and look forward to. It's one we have to attack," Matt said ahead of the trip.

"There is no bigger challenge in the league at the moment. It should hopefully be a good spectacle for League Two football.

"There will be a lot of space on the pitch, and they are certainly there to be shot at."
