Stanley v Cambridge Utd

1 April 2016

Stanley return to the Wham Stadium tomorrow to take on Cambridge United.

Maximum points over the Easter weekend mean the Reds are going in search of a fourth successive win and a fourth clean sheet in a row.[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.

Early season expectations were of a promotion push but disappointing results led to manager Richard Money leaving the club.

He was replaced by Shaun Derry who has set about turning them into contenders in the top half of the table.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="Manager"]

A midfielder during his playing days, Shaun Derry was appointed manager of United in November 2015.

His first game was against Accrington where the Reds won 3-2.

Derry began his career at Notts County before departing for spells with Sheffield United, Portsmouth, Nottingham Forest and Leeds. He also had two stints with Crystal Palace, winning promotion to the Premier League in 2004. He repeated the trick with Queens Park Rangers before hanging up his boots following a loan spell at Millwall.

He took charge of Notts County but left in March 2015 before moving to the Abbey Stadium
