Alex Nicholls grabbed the only goal of the game to secure all three precious points for Graham Westley’s strugglers.

Nicholls controlled John Akinde’s lay-off and kept his composure to sweep home a low shot beyond keeper Sam Walker and in at the far post.

For the second weekend running, John McGreal’s U’s under-performed, just as they had done at Crewe when they again endured a 1-0 loss.

“It was a thoroughly disappointing performance,” said McGreal.
