It was honours even at Westwood Road as Cambridge City and St Ives played out a 0-0 draw.
With little goal action, it was all about match fitness and City boss Robbie Nightingale must have been encouraged by seeing the return of defender Adam Capel after he missed the Godmanchester defeat in midweek with injury.
Right back Ben Robinson was unavailable whilst Jack Vasey and Ross Paterson missed out with slight knocks.
Salim Relizani featured after replacing Lewis Whitehead in the first half. James Hall was once again in a City shirt partnering Ryan Sharman in attack.
St Ives had both Ollie Snaith and Ben Seymour-Shove in their squad who were with City last year. Their focus will now be on the opening game at home to Tamworth next week whilst City will have to wait another fortnight to get their campaign underway with a home clash against Corby Town.
