Cambridge are in a tight tussle with Cheltenham at the top of the League Two table. They hold a two-point lead over the Robins but have played a game more.

So they can’t take their foot off the gas and will look to build on a win that they picked up on the weekend.

This is a tricky road game for them however against a motivated Leyton Orient who are only one point outside of the play-off spots.

In the match outright the win for Leyton Orient is at 8/5* (odds recorded 18:49 GMT April 18th).

Earlier this season they did suffer a loss away at Cambridge, a 2-1 reverse in that fixture.

In last season’s corresponding fixture, they did claim a 2-1 home win over Cambridge.

Three of the last four meetings between the two clubs have been settled in favour of the home side on the day.

In the last eight rounds of League Two action, only Port Vale have earned more points than Leyton Orient have done in the division.

So they are carrying some form and have plenty of motivation as well with the playoff spots right in their sights.

They could give the visiting Cambridge some problems.


Cambridge Preview – Can the U’s survive a tough test

Cambridge are top of League two, holding a two-point advantage of Cheltenham. But they played a game more.

They aren’t quite over the line yet in terms of automatic promotion, regardless of where the title ends up.

Three points would get them a lot closer on Tuesday night.

Cambridge claimed a win on the weekend, a success played out at Newport.

That is the only win in their last three games.

But the U’s carrying some away from having dropped only two points in their last four games out on the road.

Overall it has been a W11 D3 L7 road record from Cambridge.

In the match outright odds the away win is at 8/5* (odds recorded 18:49 GMT April 18th).

But while their away record reads ok, all but three of those away wins happened against teams currently 17th or lower in the division.

So this is no easy game for them on their travels at all, especially with the pressure on.

Cambridge have won only two of their games played against the rest of the current top eight.
