17 August 2013

United win on the road.

Cambridge United maintained their unbeaten start to the campaign, with a 1-0 victory at Aldershot Town this afternoon.

The only goal of the game came courtesy of Shots defender, Joe Oastler, in the twelfth minute, when he nodded Harrison Dunk's cross in to his own net.

Nathan Arnold fired wide just moments later, Berry, Sam-Yorke and Arnold again had chances to increase the U's lead.

Rory McAuley limped off the pitch midway through the first half and was replaced with Liam Hughes.

HT 0-1

The hosts stared the second half in a lively fashion, U's 'keeper Chris Maxwell being tested on more than one occasion.

Sam-Yorke & Berry cam close again for The U's, however the scoreline remained 1-0.  

In the 86th minute, Ryan Donaldson was brought down in the area, winning The U's a penalty.  Donaldson took the spot kick himself, only to fire over the bar.
