Cambridge City earn bragging rights over Histon in Cambridgeshire Invitation Cup
Jarid Robson and Michael Gyasi were on target as Cambridge City earned the derby bragging rights with a 2-0 win over Histon in the Cambridgeshire Invitation Cup.
Robson gave City the lead in the 37th minute, breaking into the area and poking a shot past advancing keeper Sam Roach.
In the 50th minute, good work by Arel Amu at the edge of the area led to him squaring a pass to Gyasi across the box, and he landed a sumptuous finish over Roach into the top corner to complete the win.
Last Saturday, slipped to a 1-0 defeat at home to Grays Athletic in the BetVictor Isthmian League, North Division.
The sides had gone into the match level on points in the table, and had keeper Sam Roach to thank for keeping them level with a terrific save in the first half.
However, Grays were able to take the lead when Steve King headed home a free kick in the 38th minute.
Histon’s best chance was a 25-yard effort from Danny Gould that thundered back off the bar.
The result leaves Lance Key’s men in 10th in the table.
The Stutes are away to Canvey Island this Saturday (November 30).
Cambridge City were without a game last weekend, but are at home to Aveley this Saturday.
