3:35pm Sat 20 Aug 11: No action to speak of here but Harriers are trying to respond. They've not been at their best going forward. Lee Vaughan's cross forces a corner.

3:00pm Sat 20 Aug 11: One piece of Harriers gossip, the team bus has picked up a dent while reversing at a hotel this morning. Is that an omen for the game? Incidentally, U's have three ex-Harriers in starting line-up. Tom Shaw is well-known after a good season last year, while Ryan Charles played for Harriers on-loan from Luton in December 2009. Michael Wylde did play for Harriers on trial in 2007. Steve Guinan also had a brief spell at Cambridge a decade ago but had his contract cancelled for instigating a food fight.

3:00pm Sat 20 Aug 11: U's boss Jez George makes one change from the side which edged out Telford. Steve Kinniburgh is dropped and replaced at left-back by Rory McAuley. Cambridge (4-4-2): Naisbitt (GK); Roberts (RB); Coulson (CB); Wylde (CB); Shaw (CM); Charles (F); Carew (RM); Dunk (LM); McAuley (LB); Berry (CM); Marriott (F).

3:00pm Sat 20 Aug 11: No changes for Harriers boss Steve Burr, exactly the same squad and starting line-up as used against Gateshead and Wrexham. Jack Byrne is still suspended and Briscoe and Cresswell back injuries.

3:00pm Sat 20 Aug 11: Shuttle Online will have live match updates from Harriers Conference clash at Cambridge (3pm kick-off).
