Cambridge United interim head coach Joe Dunne is expecting a very tough game for his side as they prepare to face Wycombe on Saturday

With Cambridge sitting in 14th, they have made progress under Dunne since he took over from Shaun Derry in recent weeks.

With the challenge of facing Gareth Ainsworth's troops at Adams Park a daunting one, Dunne admits his side will be in for a tricky test in south Bucks.

He said: "They are another good team we’re playing against in this run that has us against the top teams, pushing for promotion and that’s a great challenge for us and it’s one we’ve accepted and will continue to accept. 

"We know Saturday, going there, as we found out last year is going to be tough and in previous years it’s been tough, even at home it’s been tough. They’re a good outfit, aiming for promotion this year."

Dunne also pinpointed what he believes has been Wanderers' big chance from last season, which has helped them to the lofty heights of fourth in League Two.

He added: "I think they’ve certainly added a lot of goals to this game, you can see that in the goals column, but consistence is always something all managers ask for and I think they’ve been pretty consistent this year. 

"I think there was a period last year when both ourselves and them were at the wrong end of the table and both teams galvanised to get to play each other in a game where either could have made the play-offs depending on results elsewhere, So it’s good progress from Gareth and his team and they deserve a hell of a lot of respect in this division, as do all the other teams at the top."

Despite losing their last two league encounters, Dunne said he wouldn't be drawn into complacency and focus on those last two losses.

He said: "No, not at all. Football changes very quickly week to week. You can win some, draw some, lose some. What they’ve done and how they’ve played in the last few games we’ve obviously looked at. However we just try to keep the focus, as we’ve always done, on ourselves."
