Away | 11 February 2017 | Attendance: 43
Excellent away performance thanks to a Ben Pring treble and a close range Dan Harvey finish.
Started well with Dan Heavey, Callum Elms, Jon Bazley and Alessandro Zarrelli getting a real hold of the midfield and Pring and Jaiden Savery creating all sorts of problems down the right with the latter thumping a shot against the bar, Pring bringing a smart stop out of Sutton keeper Scott Armstrong at his near post and Bazley firing over from close range.
Certainly not all one way with Chris Snoddy saving brilliantly when faced one on one and then the home centre forward for once escaping the attentions of the again impressive Zach Costello but shooting just wide, within minutes we had taken the lead with Pring beating Armstrong with a low drive to take us in 1 nil ahead.
Sutton came out fired up and Costello, Nick Chandler and captain Ajay Arithoppah had their work cut out on more than one occasion to keep our lead intact and the ever alert Snoddy bringing off another couple of smart stops before Elms found Pring who finished with ease to put us two to the good on the hour.
2 soon became 3 when after a superb Armstrong save from Costello's close range effort Pring was on hand to complete his trick with a tap in and the same player did superbly well to engineer the space for Harvey to thump home an unstoppable drive from 10 yards.
All in all a good day's work, decent officials and as usual a big thanks to Sutton for their excellent hospitality....
