They had the lead before half time as Nelson-Addy got his first in the 37th minute, sending a fine shot into the top corner from the edge of the area.
It was 3-1 in the 65th minute, as Ryan Sharman’s header looped over the stranded keeper and into the far corner, although it was credited as an own goal to North Leigh’s Daniel Oliveira.
Jack Tutton reduced the arrears for the hosts from the penalty spot in the 87th minute.
But City avoided a nervous final few minutes as Nelson-Addy got his second of the afternoon, taking advantage of a quick free kick.
