Three To Watch: Cambridge United

8 August 2017

Ahead of this evening's Carabao Cup tie with Cambridge United, we take a look at the potential threats in the ranks of our League Two opponents.

Luke Berry - Midfielder

An attacking central midfielder, Luke returned to United during June 2015, having spent the 2014/15 season with Barnsley. A product of the U’s youth development scheme, he made his first-team debut in April 2010.

Sold to Barnsley in August 2015, he played 37 matches for the Tykes, pocketing two goals, prior to arriving back at the Cambs Glass Stadium having signed a four-year deal. Luke has again topped the goalscoring charts in consecutive campaigns, netting an impressive 22 times last term.

His career tally for the club had reached 64 in just over 250 games at the conclusion of 2016/17 season.

Uche Ikpeazu - Striker

Signed on a short-term deal in August 2016, Uche brings a powerful physical presence to the U’s attack.

Following a spell in the Academy at Reading and loan stint with Didcot Town, this 22-year old penned his first professional contract with Watford during the summer of 2013. Unable to break into the first-team, he embarked on temporary spells at Crewe and Doncaster, before a productive 28-game loan with League One side Port Vale.

He concluded the 2015/16 campaign with Blackpool, before being released by the Hornets. Uche claimed his first league strike for United during the victory at Newport last October and finished the season with eight goals to his name. 

Piero Mingoia - Midfield

25-year old Piero established his reputation as one of the finest right-sided midfielders in League Two whilst with Accrington Stanley, prior to his summer 2016 move to the U’s.

An academy player with Watford, he made a first-team debut during January 2013 when the Hornets faced Hartlepool in an FA Cup tie, also scoring with a fine 25-yard strike to seal the tie.

He eventually signed for Accrington in 2013 following a temporary stint at the Wham Stadium. Piero helped Stanley to the Play-Offs at the end of the 2015/16 campaign, netting a superb goal against AFC Wimbledon in the semi-final before opting for a new challenge at United.

He scored 15 times in 144 appearances whilst at Accrington and, then having signed a two-year deal at the Cambs Glass Stadium, netted on his U’s debut against Barnet.
