Downham edged in front midway through the second half and completed the victory with two goals inside the final 10 minutes.

Hurst said: "They scored from their first attack and once they had the equaliser we never really recovered - every time we made a mistake they scored.

"We have not really settled on our best starting 11 yet and we haven't been able to field the same back line for various reasons."

Godmanchester travel to Hadleigh United for an FA Vase tie on Saturday.
