Football, League Two, Cambridge United

Town boss Nathan Jones was overjoyed with his side’s 2-0 win over Cambridge United which sees the Hatters move up into fourth in the Sky Bet League Two.

Striker Isaac Vassell slotted home in the first half before winning a penalty in the second, which Jordan Cook tucked away from 12 yards to secure the result for the hosts.

With Portsmouth losing at Exeter, Town moved above Paul Cook’ side into fourth, four points off Carlisle United, but Town have a game in hand.

Jones was really impressed by his side, as he watched from the stands, serving a one match touchline ban he picked up after the match against Wycombe Wanderers. 

He said: “I am really delighted for my team. We took a bit of time to get going, it wasn’t a fluent performance from us. But it was a real solid, hardworking performance and we looked a real threat at times and I am just delighted, it was a good win.

“It could have been more, but to win 2-0 at home to Cambridge – who we played here a year ago, in my first game, and it was 0-0. We are streets ahead of where we were, so I am delighted. It was a wonderful performance.

“We had an interesting stat today. If the top six played each other week in, week out, then we would be top of the league.

“So we knew when we came up against teams in form, we stand up to that. That seems to be a motivation for us. These are a real dangerous side, but we stood up to what they had and I thought we were excellent, I really did.”
