When you are next potting on, plant the cucumber right up to its neck. This will encourage roots to grow from what is currently the stem, so giving your plant better stability and more roots to seek the feed & moisture. I do this for courgettes and tomatoes too. It also seems to work on flowering plants too, currently Cosmos, Ipomoea, Chilean Glory Vine are all doing well.
