The home side’s performance was even more creditable as the squad had been stricken with a sickness bug during the week which had prevented them training and kept Niall Thompson and Dan Green out of the squad.
Certainly, City made a slow start as the Cambridgeshire visitors went ahead after seven minutes, with Nick Freeman finishing well following a quick break.
Buoyed by the goal, City took went ahead with excellent Matt Wright’s first time near post finish from another White cross.
City began the second half in electric style with Vassell forcing the ball over the line for his hat-trick when Gerrar found Cody Cooke’s shot too hot to handle.
At 5-2 up, City were home and dry and they continued to create chances before Histon pulled a goal back with 17 minutes left thanks to a smart finish from Ashley White.
