The U's started strongly and won a succession of corners.

The referee then sent off Cambridge's Dunk on 20 mins for a two-footed challenge on Artus.

Town created a bit of pressure with the extra man and from a corner the ball was flicked on to Thompson, who flicked it in on 29 mins.

Almost immediately Town conceded. Cambridge won a corner and the ball was crossed to Michael Wylde on the far post who struck it in on the half volley.

The first half ended 1-1.

Town had most of the possession in the early part of the second half but struggled with the final ball.

The deadlock and frustration was finally broken from yet another corner when Duffy's header was cleared from just behind the goal, which was awarded by the officials.

As the referee kept booking numerous players from both sides, Cambridge's biggest threat looked to come from set pieces with their aerial threat.

From one of these Jennings hit the post from about 30 yards out, and fortunately Town managed to clear it.

Town had chances in injury time to seal the game, but Elding wasted a total sitter with all the time in the world.

The Mariners hung on to pick up three points.
