A stunning strike by Ieuan Lewis was enough for ten-man Cambridge City to edge past Weymouth at The Bob Lucas Stadium.

Cambridge's Craig Hammond was shown a red card for an off-the-ball incident with Dan Clay. The visitors' management had tried to substitute Hammond, but he was dismissed by referee Iain Parsons.

Mark Ford had several good chances to open the scoring for the Terras, but couldn't find a way past City goalkeeper Zac Barrett.

The visitors had the better of the second half, and were rewarded when Lewis turned brilliantly - before launching a perfect shot into the top corner of Simon Evans' goal.
