Jan Molby made one change from the side that drew with Leyton Orient a week ago, with new loan signing Phil Jevons coming in for Gary Bradshaw.

It was Jevons who had the best chance of the first half, having a header tipped over.

10 minuets after half time Dean Keates was denied a penalty, then Jevons shot just wide after Cambridge 'keeper Marshall fumbled a Shaun Smith shot. A City goal looked soon in coming.

The breakthrough came in the 70th minute when Justin Whittle powered a header in to get only his third ever goal for the club.

That was followed by a Shaun Smith free kick 3 minutes later that left Marshall with no chance to make it 2-0.

The home side pulled one back in the 90th minute with Dave Kitson scoring, but it turned out to be nothing more than a consolation goal and Jan Molby picked up his first win as City manager at the 11th time of asking.

City line-up (4-4-2): Glennon; Regan, Whittle, Anderson, Smith; Johnson (Peat 65), Ashbee, Keates, Williams; Alexander, Jevons (Edwards 83).
Un-used subs: Musselwhite, Philpott, Bradshaw.
