Games coming thick and fast for the U's

With four games in 12 days, there seems little time for Cambridge United to breathe at the moment.

It therefore seems to be something of a respite that the heavy overnight rain has meant the training pitches at Clare College were out of bounds on Thursday (February 15).

Instead, it has meant a different approach to training for interim head coach Joe Dunne and the squad following their late return after the 3-2 win at Chesterfield on Tuesday night.

“We will work on a two-day recovery with the ones who played the other evening, obviously it was a late night back at 3am,” said Dunne.

“We will get them recovered and get them refreshed, and then another group will go on to the astro at Newmarket.

“We can’t pay enough credit to Newmarket Town FC for allowing us to do that. Whilst we’re doing that, there are also players that don’t train on that kind of surface because of the problems it can present to some people.

“We manage it, look after it and just make sure each player is fresh and then on Friday we will hopefully be out there.”
