Cambridge City moved into the play-offs with a comfortable 7-1 home victory over Marlow.

In all honesty, it was a night that Marlow will probably want to forget. The visitors arrived late which meant that the kick-off was delayed by 10 minutes. Then, they were reduced to 10 men in the second half. However, City were ruthless, professional, and did what they had to do to ensure they climbed above Chalfont and into the top six.

Robbie Nightingale had to shuffle the pack due to an injury to Adam Capel. Skipper Ross Paterson deputising for the youngster at left back. There was a start also for Ben Seymour-Shove, as Ebby Nelson-Addy remained injured.

It was Seymour-Shove, who was going to be the star of the show. After a quiet opening few minutes, the match was no more than 10 minutes old when Seymour-Shove latched onto a mistake by a Marlow defender to fire home the first goal of the contest.

The same player almost got a second shortly after. Instead of firing straight at goal, his effort was hit into the ground but only found the welcome head of Jordan Gent who nodded past the keeper as City increased their lead.

Next, it was the turn of Ryan Towner who drew a fine save from a long range effort as City went in search for the third. Despite Towner missing out, Seymour-Shove was on hand once again as he wasn’t picked up inside the area, and he lashed home the third.

By now, Marlow would be forgiven for throwing in the towel. However, they gave themselves hope when Charlie Barton fired in a long range effort that eluded the dive of Josh Bexon.

A free scoring encounter this season isn’t the same without a goal from Ryan Sharman, and the City hot-shot got in the act when he headed home a corner to restore the 3 goal advantage. That goal was the 30th of the season for Sharman.

Four became five shortly before half time. This time the move was created by Seymour-Shove who picked out James Hall to fire home an effort past the by now bewildered Phil Brown in the Marlow goal.

City went seeking more goals in the second half, and Seymour-Shove was hacked to the ground inside the penalty area, which lead to Marlow being reduced to 10 men. Seymour-Shove got up and fired home from the spot for his hat-trick. That proved to be his last action as he was replaced by youngster Isaac Maynard and shortly afterwards Nightingale introduced fellow youngster Alex Lyratzopolous for James Hall.

With Marlow a man light, the flood gates could have well and truly opened, and to their credit they only conceded one more and that was when the ball was finally converted by Ryan Towner. In truth, there were various City players who missed the opportunity to finish a move started by Nathan Olukanmi but no one was complaining as the Lilywhites did what they had to do and with it boost what was already a very impressive goal difference.

City will now be looking to sustain their top six place, and the season moves on with a trip to Northwood on Saturday.
