Uche Ikpeazu’s goal two minutes from time helped Cambridge United snatch a dramatic single-goal victory against Stevenage.Ikpeazu nodded in a superb cross from substitute Jevani Brown to score his side’s first goal in five league matches.His side were indebted to goalkeeper David Forde 10 minutes from the end, when he pulled off three saves inside 60 seconds.

Forde brilliantly kept out Chris Whelpdale’s effort, then saved point-blank headers from Whelpdale and Joe Martin from the resulting corners.In a first half low on chances, Tom Pett came closest for the visitors when Whelpdale’s throw was flicked on and he fired over from the edge of the box.Paul Lewis missed a glorious chance for the U’s in the 64th minute when he blazed over from close range after Brown’s pull-back.Joe Fryer was forced into an excellent save 18 minutes from time from Ikpeazu, whose effort was destined for the top corner, but the U’s striker had the final word.Report supplied by the Press AssociationLine-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsCambridge1Forde2Halliday5Taylor6Legge3Carroll7MingoiaSubstituted forBrownat 53’minutes22LewisBooked at 22minsSubstituted forMarisat 64’minutes21Elito11DunkBooked at 77minsSubstituted forAmooat 78’minutes14Ibehre9IkpeazuSubstitutes12Taft13Mitov15Osadebe18Maris19Amoo20Brown24DaviesStevenage1Fryer25HenryBooked at 30mins4King6Wilkinson3Martin7Whelpdale30McKee2Smith11PettSubstituted forBeautymanat 90+1’minutes15Samuel19NewtonSubstitutes5Franks8Beautyman16Day17Gorman18Conlon20Vancooten33WilmotReferee:Brett HuxtableAttendance:4,039Match StatsHome TeamCambridgeAway TeamStevenagePossessionHome56%Away44%ShotsHome15Away13Shots on TargetHome6Away5CornersHome9Away6FoulsHome16Away12Live TextPosted at Match ends, Cambridge United 1, Stevenage 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Cambridge United 1, Stevenage 0.Posted at 90’+5′ Jevani Brown (Cambridge United) hits the left post with a left footed shot from outside the box.Posted at 90’+2′ Attempt saved.
