Heading into Tuesday’s fixture at Burton Albion, Wigan were aware that collecting another three points at the Pirelli Stadium might prove decisive in the race for promotion.
Although the Latics only left Staffordshire with a point from a goalless draw, Leam Richardson and his squad will feel like it is another point gained with one match still in hand on second-placed MK Dons.
While promotion is the priority, Richardson will be eager to lift the League One crown, and his side now sit four points clear of their nearest rivals.
The North-West outfit are also on a nine-match unbeaten streak in the league, a run of results which has featured six victories and three draws.
The game on Tuesday was the first time since March 1 that Wigan had not found the back of the net, although the positives will be taken from just a second clean sheet in five attempts.
Cambridge head into this fixture with little but pride and position to fight for, but Mark Bonner will be thoroughly delighted with how his team have fared back in this division.
Sitting in 13th spot and 16 points clear of the relegation zone is well above pre-season expectations, at least among the fanbase who probably anticipated a battle for survival.
The U’s are making every effort to end the campaign with a flourish having recorded three wins from their last four matches, the most recent coming at home to Morecambe.
Jonny Smith is expected to miss out for Burton after suffering a shoulder injury against Plymouth on Saturday.
Christian Saydee was introduced as his replacement during that fixture and appears to be in line to get the nod for this contest.
Jacob Maddox and Louis Moult are alternatives if Hasselbaink wishes to introduce any fresh legs.
Despite having several options at his disposal, Richardson may be prepared to stick with the Wigan XI which started at Lincoln.
