Christmas came early for Aylesbury as they claimed the points with a 1-0 victory over Cambridge City at Westwood Road.

City went into the game following back to back victories, but would have to make do with an unavailable Salim Relizani whilst Tom Knowles and James Hall were not fully fit meaning that they would have to start on the bench. The returning Lewis Wilson lead the forward line alongside Ryan Sharman. Mason Spence was injured in the warm-up, but started the game.

The match got off to a quiet start, with the first real goal mouth action featuring a fumble from Jenkins in the Aylesbury goal.

City though then got into their stride and were unlucky not to take the lead when Ben Robinson picked out Ryan Sharman who saw his header hit the bar. It was the same combination again shortly after, but this time the effort from Sharman was saved by Jenkins.

By now City were building some momentum and were unlucky not to open the scoring with the next move of the match when Jack Vasey saw an effort hit the bar. This time the rebound fell invitingly for Ben Seymour-Shove, but he couldn’t convert his chance from no more than 6 yards out.

City then paid the penalty for missing chances as Aylesbury stunned the home crowd by taking the lead. Picking up on a loose ball Brian Haule showed good technique to create an opening and fired the ball past the outstretched hand of Conroy.

City almost responded when Ben Robinson picked out Lewis Wilson, but the striker headed wide of the target.

However, City were then pegged back and Aylesbury looked a real threat going forward, and Garry Jones forced a fine save from Conroy. Robbie Nightingale was then forced to make a change when Mason Spence was forced to withdraw and was replaced by Adam Capel.

Conroy was then forced into making a fine save at his feet from another good Aylesbury effort. He was then called into action moments later when Adam Capel was outpaced and Kerran Latalle saw his effort well saved by the City stopper.

With City arguably fortunate to be just a goal down at half time, Lewis Wilson should have restored parity shortly after the interval, but couldn’t make the best of his chance from a narrow angle.

The home side were then looking to turn the screw and had another great opportunity to equalise when Ryan Towner picked out Ben Seymour-Shove and his effort produced a fine save from Jenkins.

With City guilty of missing chances, Robbie Nightingale introduced both James Hall and Tom Knowles, but it was Aylesbury who had the next chance when a free kick from Haule drew a save from Conroy.

As was the pattern of the much of the game the latter stages saw plenty of City possession with a lack of a cutting edge and bizarrely the Lilywhites nearly got level late on when an Aylesbury defender saw a header hooked off his own line. There was still time for Tom Knowles to fashion another opening, but his effort was dragged wide, and even with a generous 6 minutes of injury time City could not force a breakthrough that summed up a thoroughly frustrating afternoon.
