Cambridge City took their tally to eleven goals in two games as they overcame the challenge of Uxbridge at a bitterly cold Westwood Road.

City boss Robbie Nightingale went with a starting line-up that saw Mason Spence continue at left back with Jack Vasey and Tom Knowles playing wide. There was plenty of strength on a bench which consisted of Salim Relizani and new signing, Ben Seymour-Shove.

Home fans were looking to see if City could start where they left off at Aylesbury United last weekend, but the home side took a while to get into the game. The closest they came during the opening minutes was when Ryan Towner saw a shot go over the bar. At the other end, Harry Tucker was unlucky to see an effort go just wide of the target.

The game opened up when James Hall played in Jack Vasey. The former Royston player looked to have put City in front, but somehow his effort went wide of the post with McCarthy in the Uxbridge goal beaten.

It was Vasey again who missed the next opportunity as the pull was pulled back, and his close range effort went wide of the post when he should have hit the target.

By now City had lost the services of Tom Knowles who had to leave the field with a knee injury and was replaced by Salim Relizani.

Shortly after it was third time lucky for Vasey when a cross came in and when the ball broke free he made no mistake to convert the ball past McCarthy for the opening goal of the contest.

City doubled the lead before the break when Relizani did well to beat his man and he picked out Sharman who showed good control to fire past McCarthy.

Ten minutes after the re-start the game was as good as over as a contest when Uxbridge failed to clear the ball and it eventually found its way to James Hall who fired home.

Centre back Jordan Williams came close to getting a fourth for City when he found himself in a forward position, but seemed to get the ball stuck under his feet when well placed.

Robbie Nightingale introduced Ben Seymour-Shove for Jack Vasey and the new signing made an immediate impact with his pace causing trouble for the visiting defence. In the next move, Seymour Shove was the provider as he went on another run, crossed the ball, and when the Uxbridge defence failed to clear, Ryan Sharman took advantage as he back heeled the ball past McCarthy for his second of the game.

Hopes of a clean sheet were dashed when Uxbridge broke through the City defence and former Lilywhite Anthony Thomas slipped the ball past Conroy.

Despite a brawl involving many players that held up proceedings for a while there was still time for City to add another, and arguably saved the best for last. This time it was the two substitutes involved as Nathan Olukanmi did well to pick out Seymour-Shove. With his back to goal he turned and smashed a fine shot past McCarthy for the fifth and final goal of the afternoon.

The Lilywhites have now moved up to fourth and have a week break now before they host Aylesbury next Saturday.
