Cambridge City had to settle for a point against a hard working Kempston Rovers at Westwood Road last night.

The match was originally scheduled for Easter Monday, but was postponed and the rearranged match was thrown into doubt twice. First, the club was grateful to an unpaid army of volunteers including City legend Steve Gawthrop, for forking the pitch throughout the day. Then, just as the players were to kick-off, the floodlights went out. Thankfully the delay was only 15 minutes and Westwood Road was fully illuminated once more, meaning at last the match got underway.

In the Kempston side was Mason Spence who left City recently. Meanwhile City boss Robbie Nightingale, was still unable to name Jack Vasey, Adam Capel and Ebby Nelson-Addy in his starting line-up as they were deemed not fit to start. Whilst Salim Relizani was also on the bench after being unavailable in recent games.

It was the visitors who started the liveliest and almost opened the scoring early on when Ben Robinson misjudged a clearance, and the ball fell invitingly into the path of Josh Crawley who went for the lob, but put his effort over the bar.

The high tempo that City so often play with was missing early on, but Ryan Sharman was unfortunate when his close range effort was saved by the feet of Martin Conway in the Kempston goal.

The visitors broke the deadlock just before the half hour mark when the ball was not cleared in the area, and it fell for Jake Newman who fired home from close range giving Josh Bexon no chance in the City goal.

Whatever boss Robbie Nightingale said to his team at half time clearly made an impact as the home side came out all guns blazing, and were back in the contest a minute after the re-start. Ryan Sharman met a Ryan Towner cross and glanced a header past Conway to bring the Lilywhites level.

City then turned the screw and the high tempo and fluency was back in their game. However, they were guilty of missing chances to take the lead, James Hall and Lewis Wilson both missing good opportunities. However, Nathan Olukanmi perhaps missed the best chance when he was picked out by James Hall, and with the winger no more than 12 yards out he somehow managed to blast the ball over the bar.

Nightingale shuffled the pack by introducing Jack Vasey and Salim Relizani, but it was Kempston who went closest to grabbing the points in the dying moments as Jordan Gent had to be on hand to block an effort off the line, and the visitors pressed further after that, but City held firm to ensure they claimed a point.
