Berry’s Form Behind Cambridge Surge

league-2Our outside ante-post tip for League 2, Cambridge United, appeared determined to embarrass us as they picked up just 3 points from their opening eight matches this season.

But Shaun Derry’s side have made a marked improvement over the last couple of months, winning eight of their last 12 in the league to move to the fringes of the play-offs and still a decent outsider for promotion at 14/1 with Paddy Power.

Central to their resurgence has been the form of midfielder Luke Berry – who has scored seven goals in his last three starts to take his tally for the campaign to 13, while their 5-0 win at Hartlepool on Saturday was their fifth in six away games. That victory came six days after their 4-0 FA Cup demolition of Coventry, in which Berry scored all four.
