The winning run for Cambridge City continues as they recorded a 4-2 victory over Thame United at Westwood Road.

In a match that saw the first league action for the Lilywhites for almost 3 weeks, Robbie Nightingale shuffled the pack and started with both Mark Coulson and Ollie Snaith instead of Mason Spence and Saim Relizani. Both were part of the team that had beaten St Ives 6-2 in a league cup tie in what was the last home action for City. New signing Nathan Olukanmi was on the bench.

The high tempo that comes as standard to much of the Lilywhites play was missing in the opening exchanges. However, Ryan Sharman nearly capitalised when Craig Hill in the Thame goal dropped the ball. In the same passage of play, the ball found its way to Ross Paterson who saw his long range effort go over the bar.

The visitors looked a threat coming forward, and took the lead when a shot was parried by Niall Conroy only to fall invitingly for Dan West to convert from close range.

However, the lead was short lived and City were back in the contest when Jordan Gent rose above the Thame defence to head the ball past Hill.

City were now looking to boss the game, and Lewis Wilson did well to peel off his marker when well placed but, good defending denied a goal scoring opportunity.

The Lilywhites made their possession count when they took the lead. A perfectly weighted ball in from Knowles on the left picked out Ryan Sharman who headed home.

Despite being behind, Thame were still causing problems, and were unlucky not to get back in the contest when Lyton Goss spotted Conroy fractionally off his line and his long range effort bounced off the underside of the bar.

It was Goss who was involved again in what proved to be the makings of the equaliser. He was in on goal and his effort was cleared. From the resulting corner, the City defence dithered missing at least two opportunities to clear the ball before allowing West to convert his second of the afternoon.

However, City were back in front almost immediately as the ball broke to Ollie Snaith who put a deep cross into the back post where Ross Paterson did well to head the ball home from a tight angle.

The visitors came out in the second half looking to get back into the contest and the City defence had to be at their best as West was still causing problems. First, he got the better of Miller but fired in a shot that was easy for Conroy. Then from a free kick, his effort just went over the bar.

City were still pushing forward for what would be a decisive fourth, and it was the introduction of Salim Relizani and new signing Nathan Olukanmi that provided more pace and purpose to the Lilywhites attacking options. Olukanmi in particular was showing great pace proving that he could well be a handful for visiting defences for the remainder of the season.

But it was Lewis Wilson who got the fourth after Ben Robinson picked him out at the far post from another City attack. The striker making no mistake to put the ball past Hill.

Shortly after, and City could have got another when the pace of Olukanmi left the Thame defence for dead, and when he picked out the boot of Wilson he drew a fine save from Hill to deny the Lilywhites extending their lead.

Thame kept pressing to get back into the contest again, but City had done enough to record another 3 points and with it take their goals tally from the last 3 home games to 16 as well as recording their fifth win on the bounce. Next up, Hanwell on Tuesday night.
