Cambridge City remain eight points clear of relegation zone despite home defeat to Sporting Khalsa





A late goal condemned Cambridge City to a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of visiting Sporting Khalsa on Saturday.

The Lilywhites went in front early at Westwood Road courtesy of Will Jones, who took just seven minutes to break the deadlock.

It was the forward’s first goal in City colours since his arrival was announced on Christmas Eve.

However, However, Robbie Nightingale’s side were pegged back with 26 minutes on the clock when Marvellous Onabirekhanlen drew eighth-placed Khalsa level.

And the scoreline remained locked at a goal apiece until five minutes from time, at which point Toumani Sidibe struck to secure the away side all three points.

City, who are 16th, will aim to bounce back at the first time of asking on Saturday (24 February) when they hit the road and head to Northamptonshire to take on AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

The hosts have endured a tough campaign to date and they go into the encounter sitting bottom of the table with a return of 15 points from their 27 fixtures, four of which they have won.

When the two teams met in the reverse fixture in early October it was City that edged the contest 1-0 thanks to a goal from Mikey Davis.

Meanwhile, the club have announced that Liam Chadwick has agreed a move to the USA to play for the Wisconsin Badgers.

The midfielder, who has risen through the academy at Cambridge United, will continue to play for City for the remainder of the campaign before heading across the Atlantic.

Chadwick has made 24 appearances in a City shirt this term.
