HALF-TIME: Cambridge United 1, Eastbourne Borough 2
A fantastic finish from Jamie Taylor plus an own goal from Danny Crow have given Eastbourne Borough the lead at half-time at the Abbey Stadium.
The visitors could have been in an even stronger position but for Crow pulling one back from the penalty spot.
Taylor stunned a disappointing crowd at the Abbey Stadium when he gave Borough the lead against the run of play in the 14th minute.
There looked nothing on when Andy Atkin flicked on Simon Johnson's cross to him but he cleverly turned Daryl Coakley before firing home from 12 yards.
United came close to an equaliser in the 23rd minute when Robbie Willmott's 25 yard free kick came back off the bar, possibly with the help of a touch from Danny Knowles.
Borough doubled their lead in the 33rd minute courtesy of a real mix up in the Cambridge defence. Matt Crabb whipped in a free kick from the right which Crow won in the air but the ball looped up and over Danny Potter who was caught in no man's land.
Crow made amends almost immediately as he was sent tumbling in the area by Gary Elphick. Referee Steve Ross pointed to the spot after checking with his linesman and Crow stepped up to score from 12 yards.
The Cambridge striker could have equalised five minutes before the break when he raced on to Paul Carden's ball but lobbed wide.
