Cambridge City eased to their second league win of the season as they comfortably beat Coleshill 2-0 at Bridge Road.

City boss Robbie Nightingale was forced to shuffle the pack from the team that lost to Brightlingsea Regent in the FA Cup last week. In that game, Jordan Gent was sent off so Gui Mailancol came in as Gent served his one match suspension. Elsewhere, Adam Capel filled in at left back in place of Jack Wilkinson whilst Ebby Nelson-Addy reclaimed his midfield slot after being unavailable last week. Also returning was Ross Paterson who was back in the team following injury and goalkeeper Liam Gooch was between the sticks following a one match suspension.

Despite a tight start, City got in front after just 12 minutes. Excellent work from Ben Robinson saw the right back produce an inch perfect cross to the back post where Ryan Sharman was waiting to smash the ball home.

Coleshill fashioned an opening at the other end when they went seeking an immediate response, but the cross from Joe Smith just failed to pick out Reece Leek when well placed.

The visitors came closer still when a long range effort from Rob Evans was beaten away by Liam Gooch in the City goal. It was the City stopper who got things moving for the second goal. An excellent throw found Ebby Nelson-Addy who then picked out Ryan Sharman who in turn found James Hall who made no mistake in powering a low drive beyond Matt Coton.

City were forced to make a change at half time when Adam Capel had to be withdrawn due to a knee injury and was replaced by Sam Squire. The Lilywhites started the second half looking to put the game out of sight, and Ryan Sharman capitalised on some indecisive defending from the visitors, but failed to convert the opportunity when well placed.

Next, Hall came close to getting his second of the game when Ross Paterson did well to pick out the City striker, but his effort was brilliantly turned away by Coton. At the other end, a mistake by Mailancol almost let in Coleshill, but the effort was weak and failed to trouble Gooch.

However, it was City who were making all the chances and Sharman again came close when Ben Robinson picked him out, but his effort went just wide of the target.

With City coasting at 2-0 Josh Oyinsan was introduced at the expense of James Hall and Salim Relizani replaced Nathan Olukanmi. However, it was Coleshill substitute Connor Doyle who had the next opening as he drifted into an onside position, but couldn’t convert his effort from inside the area.

Relizani was the provider for what was essentially the last real opening of the game when he linked up well with Ebby Nelson-Addy, but the latter squeezed the ball past the post with the goalkeeper beaten.

So after the disappointment of the FA Cup exit last weekend, the Lilywhites put in arguably their most controlled performance of the campaign so far. Next up for City are two away games at Dunstable Town in a fortnight and Welwyn next Saturday.
