Harry Johnston has challenged Cambridge to maintain the momentum that has seen them beat two of the top five in successive games in National League One.

The debutant landed seven points with the boot in a 27-21 win over Cinderford at Volac Park last Saturday, which followed their 17-14 success over Sale FC two weeks previously.

Ben Brownlie touched down twice and Jake McCloud and Joe Tarrant got one try apiece in the bonus-point win.

It means that Cambridge are in fifth place, just six points behind second-placed Caldy with a game in hand.

“Something we’ve talked about is momentum, especially in January,” said fly-half Johnston.

“Around the Christmas period is always a tough time of the year for all teams so the fact that we’ve had a second good win on the bounce at home in the league, we’ve just got to keep the ball rolling forward.

“Hopefully we can keep this momentum going to the end of the season. It’s heading in a good direction.”

Cambridge are away to mid-table Birmingham Moseley this Saturday (January 29), having beaten them 32-7 in the reverse fixture in October.

“It’s another tough one, they don’t get any easier,” added Johnston.

“I don’t have too much experience in the league but from what I hear and what I expect, it’s going to be tough every week.”
