Braintree Town 0-3 Cambridge

Two goals in four second-half minutes helped Cambridge to a comfortable victory over Braintree in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

The U's went in front when Michael Gash latched on to Tom Shaw's pass to find the bottom corner.

Simon Smith then slotted home from close range, before Andy Pugh's smart finish rounded off the scoring.

Shaw was sent off for violent conduct with a quarter of the match to play, but Braintree could not capitalise.
