A Shaun Tuck double helped Carl Macauley’s men to a convincing win in miserable conditions on Saturday.

With the wet weather again ruining most of the weekend’s football calendar, 131 loyal souls braved the rain and cold to see strikes from Karl Clair and Louis Barnes add to  Tuck’s brace and bag three points for the Motormen.

The home side took the lead on 18 minutes  when the impressive Tuck ran at the Histon defence before firing low past the visiting keeper Calum Kitscha.

With Motors coping far better with the heavy pitch than their struggling Cambridgeshire visitors,  Tuck grabbed his second, latching on to a through ball before slotting under the despairing dive of Kitscha.

The game was put beyond doubt mid-way through the second half when Clair finished off a flowing team move to leave the visitors with no way back.

Macauley’s charges completed the rout shortly  before the final whistle, full-back Barnes’ marauding run and one-two with Danny Fearnehough putting him clear to curl a fine effort into the far corner of Kitscha’s goal.

After the game, Motors boss Macauley  praised his two-goal hero Tuck.

“Shaun Tuck has again showed why I've brought him to this club with two great finishes,” said Macauley.

“As a team, however, we have produced a disciplined performance where we worked hard when we didn’t have the ball, then looked comfortable when we were in possession.

“We now need to bring some consistency into our performances and hopefully we will then start moving up the table.”

Striker Matty Kosylo has left  Motors to rejoin Evo-Stik Northern Premier League side Ashton United.

Motors are next  in action on Saturday when they travel to Leamington (3pm).
