Another home game, and another six goals for Cambridge City as the Lilywhites brushed aside landlords St Ives to progress to the second round of the challenge cup.

City boss Robbie Nightingale named a side that had three changes from the starting line-up that beat Barton Rovers six days previously. In came Mark Coulson for the injured Mason Spence, whilst Ollie Snaith and Buster Harradine started ahead of Salim Relizani and Ryan Towner who were on the bench. Tom Knowles also featured after City extended his loan spell from Cambridge United for another month.

St Ives made five changes to the team that started in the 3-2 defeat at home to Merthyr Town on Saturday.

The Lilywhites wasted no time in taking the lead. With no more than 25 seconds on the clock, Lewis Wilson found the net for the opener.

As with previous games this season, City were bossing the opening exchanges whilst looking tight at the back and breaking with pace. It was Jordan Gent who extended the lead for City when a cross came in and James Goff in the St Ives goal completely misjudged the ball. It landed invitingly for Gent, who converted the ball from a tight angle to put City two goals clear.

City still kept coming forward, but it was St Ives who perhaps had the next best opportunity when Niall Conroy did well to beat a shot away from Matt Wright.

However, possession was all with City, and when the Lilywhites won a free kick on the edge of the area, Buster Harradine came within a whisker of getting the third.

In what was perhaps the best move of the half for City, they should have got their third when Ryan Sharman sent in a cross only for Ross Paterson to see his effort go agonisingly wide.

However, Paterson made no mistake when he got on the end of another cross, this time from Ben Robinson. The former Soham player took the chance well to put the ball past Goff.

Three then became four as the ball was played out to Lewis Wilson who hit an unstoppable effort past Goff for his second of the game.

With City 4-0 up at the break, Nightingale introduced Ryan Towner and Salim Relizani for Tom Knowles and Ross Paterson, and it was the pace of Relizani who was causing the St Ives defence all sorts of problems in the early part of the second half.

However, the Saints got one back when Peter Clark found the net from a long range effort.

But the goal didn’t detract City from their attacking style and Buster Harradine was unlucky not to see his effort converted when he rounded Goff, but the angle proved too tight to make his chance count.

The Lilywhites then did get their fifth of the game when Lewis Wilson met a cross to fire an effort past Goff for what proved to be his hat-trick.

By this time Ian Miller had been replaced by Adam Capel, but it was left for former Lilywhite, Lee Chaffey to get the next goal, and the second for St Ives as he headed past Conroy from close range.

However, City made sure they got their sixth goal for a second successive home game when Ryan Sharman headed past Goff late on.

So City march on, and have now scored 13 goals in the last 3 games. A team that is now brimming with confidence is proving to be a pleasure to watch. Next up for the Lilywhites will be the visit of Thame United for a league fixture on 14 October.
