Pegasus took the lead thanks to a fantastic strike from distance by Jamie Riley which whizzed past the unsighted City keeper and high into the top of the net.

They doubled their lead after a retaken penalty was eventually converted by Jack Kimber. His first effort was well saved by the City keeper.

And Pegasus went further ahead after Ryan Thorlby struck a fierce left-footed curling free-kick into the bottom corner.

City also scored direct from a free-kick to narrow the gap before half-time but Tyler Edwards was rewarded for his efforts with a fourth 20 minutes into the second half.
