Elliott Moore had the chance to give United the lead, but he headed over from a corner six minutes before half-time.

Eight minutes into the second half, Moore did nudge the U’s in front. Josh Murphy swung a corner to the back post, where Cameron Brannagan nodded back across goal for Moore to head home from close range.

The visitors searched for an equaliser, but were unable to find one, with Ricky-Jade Jones and Harrison Burrows both sending efforts straight at Cumming.
