Adam May and Paul Digby catch the eye in Cambridge United’s success over Crawley Town in Sky Bet League Two
The midfield axis of Adam May and Paul Digby caught the eye for Cambridge United in their 3-1 success over Crawley Town in Sky Bet League Two.
With the comings and goings in defence, and the attacking thrust of the U’s, it could have been easy to gloss over the central midfield partnership against the Reds.
But May and Digby were in fine form against Crawley, dominating in defence and attack to stamp their authority on the match.
It shows the strength of their partnership as they have started alongside each other in eight of United’s 13 league wins this season, and three of their six draws.
“They have played in a lot of wins, so they can’t be too bad. Their work ethic is outstanding,” said United head coach Mark Bonner.
“Adam is just getting better and better I think.
“He is getting fitter, getting stronger, and there are loads and loads of things he can improve on - we all know that, he knows that, but that’s fine.
“He is a young player who has played more games this year in the league than he has ever played before and his progress is really encouraging.
“We’re thrilled with him at the moment.
“Having a couple of extra players back just creates a bit more competition for him which is good and will keep him on his toes. But he’s having a good season, and we’re really pleased with him and to have him.
“With Diggers, this month has been why we signed him. We needed a resilient, gritty, tough team that can grind out results when it’s like it has been.
“He has come alive and been at his absolute best in January.”
