Cambridge Utd V Barnet at Cambs Glass Stadium : Match Preview

24 December 2017
Cambridge look to shore up leaky defence

Cambridge will seek to be tighter in defence when Barnet visit in Sky Bet League Two on Boxing Day.

United performed well for more than 70 minutes at Notts County, taking a 3-0 lead which evaporated in the final 16 minutes as Shaun Derry's men had to settle for a point.

David Amoo was an unused substitute and could come into contention to start following a recent injury.

Gary Deegan (foot) remains out.

Barnet defender Dwight Pascal is available after completing a three-match suspension.

Richard Brindley made his first appearance since signing from Colchester in the summer in the 2-0 home loss to Cheltenham and could continue.

Charlie Clough came off at half-time in the defeat as Simeon Akinola was sent on, so there could be a change in defence.

Defender Harry Taylor (foot) and forward Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro (knee) are out, along with midfielder Curtis Weston, full-back Elliott Johnson and forward Dave Tarpey (all knee).
