Danny Hylton gave the visitors the lead in the ninth minute when he headed in from Tom Newey's cross.

On the half-hour mark Cambridge came close again as Robbie Simpson saw his header pushed away by Ryan Clarke.

With four minutes of the first half remaining the hosts drew level as Appiah fired a strike into the top corner past Clarke.

Nine minutes after the break Cambridge scored their third of the afternoon, as Ryan Donaldson slotted in from Appiah's low cross.

The hosts further extended their lead minutes later as Tom Elliott headed home Greg Taylor's cross.

With a minute left to play Simpson made it five for Cambridge as he headed in following a corner to complete the rout.
