EVO-STIK South - East Division: Egham Town 1 Cambridge City 2

Following another period of inactivity thanks to the weather, City were happy to get back into action and echoed their result of a fortnight ago, winning by the odd goal in three.

Fielding the same personel as those who took to the field at Fleet last time out, City looked solid if a little rusty in the early stages. However, they should have taken the lead with a tradmark Ryan Sharman header, but City's top scorer shaved the crossbar with his effort.

The gathered City fans didn't have to wait long for the opener though and just like busses, two came along at once. Three minutes were all that seperated two strikes that put City firmly in control of the game and both came from corners. 29 minutes were on the clock when a left sided flag kick was helped back into the danger area by Salim Relizani and James Hall was on hand to take full advantage. Then it was Jordan Gent's turn as he powered a header home for his 5th goal of the season.

City were looking confortable with their two goal lead, but as is the case with this situation, it looks oh so procarious when the opponents pull a goal back, and that is exactly what happened with Brendan Matthew pulling the home side back into the game just after the hour mark.

City didn't panic though and kept Egham at arms length for the remainder of the game, and should have restored their two goal advantage late on, but for a fantastic save from the home keeper, who somehow kept out Gent's powerful close range header.
