Good point but the only other possibility would be Derby home on the 16th August. Clearly the digit before the 6 is illegible so the only 2 games in August that Cambridge played in August where the last digit was 6 were Derby and Wolves. There was no friendly at Cambridge on the 6th August as far as I can gather so I may have jumped the gun here but it is definitely either Derby or Wolves probably Derby as the ticket might have mentioned League Cup.

As is usual with this site an expert comes along with the correct answer.

The doubt I would have is that the price of a League game for Cambridge in the same stand in that season was also £2.70 so for that to be the price for the Cambridgeshire Professional Cup match against Peterborough would be surprising. There is still an element of doubt as it is not wholly clear that there is not a digit in front of the 6.
