Recent respective form guides

Cambridge United's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While U's have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Chester City's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The Blues's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 11.

Cambridge U. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 27 games have yielded only 19 points. Chester City are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola League Two having mustered a points tally of 29 from their 26 matches played.
