Cambridge Utd v Stanley

20 November 2015

The Reds are on the road again tomorrow with a trip to Cambridge United.

John Coleman's team head to the Abbey Stadium looking to extend their unbeaten run and continue a season of encouraging away form.[vc_accordion][vc_accordion_tab title="The Opposition"]The U's finished comfortably clear of relegation in 2014/15 in what was their first season after returning to the Football League.

There were hopes that United could push for promotion this season, but results have been below expectations thus far.

This ultimately led to the sacking of Richard Money, with Cambridge now looking to turn a corner under new management.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="Manager"]Cambridge recently appointed former Notts County manager Shaun Derry as their new boss.

The 37-year-old had been available since he was sacked by the Magpies in March.

Former Crystal Palace and QPR midfielder Derry replaced Richard Money, signing a deal with the club until 2018[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="One to Watch"]Something of a coup for the U's over the summer was the signing of Corr from promoted Southend United.

He clinched promotion to League One with the Shrimpers last season before signing for Cambridge.

His other previous clubs include Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday and Bristol City, with Corr a constant scorer at all clubs.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="Form Guide"][vc_text_separator title="Stanley: LWWWD" title_align="separator_align_center" color="juicy_pink"]The Reds head south unbeaten in four games after wins over Dagenham, Leyton Orient and York and a draw with Newport.
