In the 24th minute, Lee Tomlin was booked for a foul and then was shown a red card for what looked like dissent.
City took the lead in the 38th minute when Dexter Walters created space and turned to get the ball on his right foot and curl it superbly into the net.
A good move saw Ngandu get in a 52nd minute shot which Burwood had to deal with before saving from Bremang.
Addai made another good save from Paul McKay, who was enjoying some good natured banter with some of the City support.
Three corners in quck succession were fashioned by City before Laurence Whitton missed in the 68th minute.
It proved costly as City went up the other end and Billy Stedman rounded the keeper to make it 2-0 for City who had McCallum, Ford, Eccles,Walters and Bremang, all joining in Addai and Stedman in putting in a good performance.
