Talking Points: Millwall

23 August 2021

Ahead of Tuesday's Carabao Cup Round Two clash with Millwall, we take a look at some of the big talking points surround the game...

  • Masterson looking to build on impressive debut

Conor Masterson will be hoping to put in another strong performance at the heart of the United defence. After officially joining the Club just a few hours prior to Saturday’s match, the QPR defender put in an assured display against Burton Albion, pairing up with Lloyd Jones to record a debut clean sheet.

The performance will have put many U’s fans fears at ease, after a glut of injuries at centre-back had left Mark Bonner with few options at the position.

  • Millwall hoping Cup run could kick-start season

The Round One win over Portsmouth is Millwall’s sole victory this season, as two draws and two defeats have meant for a slow start to their Championship campaign.

After consecutive 1-1 draws against QPR and Blackburn, a 2-1 defeat at home to Fulham was followed up by their most recent outing, a 3-1 loss away at Cardiff City.

  • United aiming for first Third Round birth since 1998

It has been over 20 years since Cambridge United have made it to the Third Round of the EFL Cup, a run stretching back 13 seasons of eligibility. That season, in 1998/1999, the U’s won promotion from the Third Tier and beat Watford and Sheffield Wednesday on route to the Third Round, where Nottingham Forest knocked out United on penalties following a 3-3 draw.

  • Hosts set to make host of changes

With injury issues piling up and a difficult start to their Championship campaign, Millwall are expected to ring in the changes for tomorrow’s match.

Millwall named five changes for their Round One tie against Portsmouth and Manager Gary Rowett has said that it is likely he will make even more for when Cambridge visit the Den.
