Cambridge City continue with their league campaign tomorrow when they host Uxbridge at Westwood Road.

It will be the first meeting between the two teams, and it promises to be a stern test for the Lilywhites as they welcome a side who have been boosted by two excellent results in recent times. A 3-2 win over Moneyfields followed by a 3-0 win at neighbours Hayes & Yeading mean that the Middlesex outfit make the trip full of confidence.

This is by far their best form of the season so far, as their campaign to date has been patchy which has seen them win 7 of their 18 matches in the league. They currently sit in 14th position on 23 points having won 3 times on the road this season.

One of the key players for Uxbridge is striker Dylan Kearney. He has been in the goals since joining on loan from Wealdstone earlier in the season. He was formerly with Hayes & Yeading and scored twice for Uxbridge in their recent victory against his old team.

Despite the two teams not playing each other, there is a City link as in the Uxbridge squad this season is Anthony Thomas who had a spell with the Lilywhites back in 2007.

City go into the game full of confidence after they returned to winning ways last weekend when they recorded a resounding 6-1 victory at Aylesbury United. The hat-trick from Ryan Sharman ensured that he remained the league leading scorer, and was ably assisted by James Hall who will be making his first home start tomorrow since re-joining from St Ives last week.

Elsewhere, boss Robbie Nightingale will have plenty of other options with Jordan Williams set to remain at centre back alongside Jordan Gent. Jack Vasey was injured in the latter stages at Aylesbury last weekend, so could be a doubt alongside Lewis Wilson who still hasnít recovered from an injury that his kept him out of action for the last couple of weeks.

A win for City could see them go up to third depending on results for Moneyfields and Beaconsfield who meet Hartley Wintney and Ashford respectively. Elsewhere at the top, AFC Rushden & Diamonds go to Aylesbury whilst AFC Dunstable travel to Northwood.

If you cannot make the game, then donít forget that you can keep up to date with all the action via Facebook and Twitter with a full report, analysis and interview with Robbie Nightingale available on the official website after the final whistle.

The match is being kindly sponsored by Tom and Karen Dening with the match ball donated by Rick Winter. Before the game, there will be a minutes silence in memory of life long City supporter, Tony Pryor who sadly passed away recently.

Kick-off at Westwood Road is at 3:00pm.
