Cambridge City join the list of teams that can’t beat Moneyfields in the league as they had to settle for a 1-1 draw against the league leaders.

City went into the match four points behind the only team in front of them whilst Moneyfields travelled following a 4-1 reverse in the FA Trophy at Cray Wanderers on Wednesday night.

City boss Robbie Nightingale kept Mark Coulson at left back ahead of Mason Spence whilst Jack Vasey was preferred as the wide man ahead of Tom Knowles who started on the bench. Lewis Wilson was back after missing the match against AFC Dunstable on Monday night with a dead leg.

The match got off to the worst possible start for City when Moneyfields went ahead as early as the fourth minute when the ball fell for Jamie White who fired past Conroy for the opening goal of the game.

The goal aside, Moneyfields were looking the better during the opening exchanges and City were struggling to get into the contest. The home side could have slipped further behind when Conroy was forced to tip an effort over the bar.

However, City began growing into the game, and were looking more effective when the ball was being played out to the wide men of Jack Vasey and Salim Relizani. It was Vasey who was involved in the first meaningful action for City when he was first to react to a cross from Lewis Wilson, but couldn’t get his shot away.

Possession wise, City were now shading it and just before the half hour mark created one of the best moves of the match. The ball was fed out to Ross Paterson who played in Vasey, only to see his effort stopped by Stephen Mowthorpe in the visitors goal.

In the next move of the match, City were level and Vasey was in the thick of it again. This time he made no mistake with a header after being picked out at the back post by Jordan Gent.

City by now were full of confidence and were pouring forward with any given opportunity. The home side should have arguably taken the lead when Lewis Wilson was put through but his effort was saved and the resulting rebound was headed wide by Sharman.

The Lilywhites still looked the more likely to score another as the second half got underway, and had a great opportunity when Vasey did well to supply a cross that fizzed across the six yard line when any kind of touch would have surely found the net.

With City enjoying much of the possession, there was always a danger that Moneyfields would do the ultimate smash and grab. That nearly happened when Mark Coulson got caught out. Moneyfields broke and from the cross Conroy could only punch the ball clear. It came back in and the effort from Lewis Fennemore went wide of the target.

City had the next opportunity though as they won a free kick on the edge of the area, and the effort from Salim Relizani went just wide of the post.

Robbie Nightingale introduced some fresh legs with Lewis Wilson being replaced by Tom Knowles and Salim Relizani coming off for Nathan Olukanmi. Both players added more pace to the attack, but although City kept knocking on the door, they couldn’t find a way through and had to settle for a draw.

So a point against the league leaders will be seen as a credible one, but the only downside is that the Lilywhites have now slipped to 5th in the table due to teams around them winning. One of those is AFC Rushden & Diamonds who have now gone second and are the team that City will next face on Tuesday night.
