EVO-STIK South - East Division: Uxbridge 1 Cambridge City 2

City kept in contact with the play-off chasing teams following this narrow win over Uxbridge, a neatly taken Ebby Nelson-Addy effort late in the second half proving to be the difference between the sides.

In bitterly cold conditions, City warmed their traveling support as early as the 11th minute, when they took the lead through Ryan Sharman. City’s top scorer took advantage of some slack home defending to find space and plant a free header into the back of the net.

Following the early goal, City would have hoped to have pushed on, however, despite plenty of endeavor from both sides, chances were few and far between and City went into the break still holding their slim advantage.

Uxbridge came out with clear intent in the second and put City under some pressure early on, Cole Brown forcing Charlie Bannister to save his effort from distance. Uxbridge kept up their momentum and were rewarded four minutes later as Brown beat Bannister with a snap shot from the edge of the area.

Dylan Kearney forced Bannister into another save before City squandered a great chance on the break. Then with ten minutes left, Nelson-Addy showed just what a great signing he could be when he produced a classy finish to give City the lead. Showing great poise and control he cut inside before hammering the ball beyond Paul McCarthy in the home goal.

Uxbridge looked to hit back, but Prince M’Bengui’s header that cleared the bar late on was as close as they came, City closing out the game to claim another big three points.
