History of the Cambridge United v Forest Green Rovers fixture

Cambridge U. prepare to entertain Forest Green Rovers at Abbey Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The two sides drew on their own previous meeting.

The only previous meeting between Cambridge U. and Forest Green at was less than a year ago, in January 2006, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Conference match.

Recent respective form guides

Cambridge United's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While U's have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Forest Green's away form is none too clever either, losing just 1 from the last six, but amazingly drawing the other 5. The Rovers's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Cambridge U. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 26 points from 26 matches. Forest Green find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 26 points from their 26 matches.
