Cambridge United 2-1 Fleetwood Town: Kaikai's late heroics seal victory



Cambridge United secured a thrilling 2-1 victory over Fleetwood Town on Saturday, courtesy of a late winner from Sierra Leonean forward Sullay Kaikai.


The game at Abbey Stadium was a closely contested affair, with both teams having their fair share of chances. Cambridge took the lead in the first half through new signing Lyle Taylor, but Fleetwood equalized just before the hour mark through Promise Omochere.


As time was running out, the match appeared to be heading for a draw. However, Kaikai had other ideas. With just two minutes left on the clock, he pounced on a loose ball in the Fleetwood box and calmly slotted it past the goalkeeper to secure the win for Cambridge.



The victory represents a significant boost to Cambridge's promotion hopes in League One, while Fleetwood's chances of securing a playoff spot have taken a hit. Kaikai's late heroics are sure to be the talk of Sierra Leone in the days and weeks to come, with the talented forward once again showcasing his ability on the English footballing stage.
