Cambridge United (A) Preview - Season 23/24, Episode 19

Encouraging signs for the Blues this week - an impressive performance but loss at table-toppers Portsmouth, followed by a dominant home win over in-form Burton Albion at Brunton Park - are Simmo's boys finally starting to find their feet in League One?

In this week's episode of The Brunton Bugle, Lee is joined by Mike Booth and a second appearance for newbie Adam Tiffen (@adamtiffen18 on Twitter) to look back on the loss at Pompey and the win over the Brewers. Plenty of talk about the tweak in formation to 4-2-3-1, Danny Butterworth's encouraging performances and Joe Garner rolling back the years.

That's followed by a look ahead to this weekend's trip south to take on Cambridge United - we speak to Jack from the Under The Abbey Stand podcast ahead of the game, with lots of talk about how they have coped with the loss of key attacking players this summer, how impressive the job their manager Mark Bonner has done and how Jack ended up supporting the U's despite originally hailing from the Great Border City!

On top of that, there's a news round-up and the usual Ex-Blues update.

Your host Lee Rooney is in Liverpool and is joined via the wonders of the internet by Adam Tiffen in Carlisle and Mike Booth in Formby. You can find us on Twitter @bruntonbugle, Facebook (search for "Brunton Bugle") and email us with any questions, suggestions and feedback to
