History of the Cambridge United v Altrincham fixture

Cambridge U. prepare to entertain Altrincham at Abbey Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. Of the two previous meetings, the U's have won one and drawn one.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Abbey Stadium was just last season, in October 2006, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Conference match.
