Reggie Lambe has called on the Cambridge United squad to find their clinical touch in order to add more goals to match their defensive solidity at the other end of the pitch.

Cambridge kept clean sheets in both their opening Sky Bet League Two games, looking a far more solid unit than last season, in goalless draws against Bradford City and Newport County.

They then scored their first goal of the season in Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup win over Brentford, courtesy of Marc Richards, and Bermuda forward Lambe is determined to build on that.

“We now have the defensive structure to stay solid, and we knew we had to stay solid and compact against a good footballing side and try to break when we can,” said Lambe after the Brentford game speaking to Cambridge Live. “We’re working now on creating more chances in the final third. We created a couple during the match, but there’s still more to come.

“We will work on it a bit more in training and take it into Saturday’s [today’s] game.”

Richards, veteran of more than 600 Football League games, has certainly already looked like a leader of men, and Lambe believes such experience will make all the difference this season.

“The gaffer’s brought in a lot of players and they have fitted in well,” he added. “They’re players who knows what it takes to take it to the next level and get promotions.

“It shows on the pitch that we have more experience and know-how, and to have players like Marc, for him to be leading the line is a good pointer for us.

Cambridge travel to Colchester for a Sky Bet League Two encounter today at 11am.
