Important win for Sutton United


Sutton United defeated their promotion rivals, Dagenham & Redbridge at Gander Green Lane by two goals to one on the 20th of January 2018.

The first half was goalless despite Sutton dominating the play and having many shots saved on the goal line either by the keeper or one of the defenders.  There was also a strong claim for a deliberate handball by one of the Daggers Defenders which the referee missed.

In the second half, Tommy Wright scored a superb individual goal, followed a short time later by a second goal headed in for Sutton by Tom Bolarinwa.  Tommy Wright had another goal bound shot parried by an athletic save from the Dagenham keeper.

Sutton United are now placed in second position in the National League and if they continue their current form they will be in the play-offs for promotion.

WH Matthews are proud sponsors of Sutton United and the Resident Partner at Sutton office, Nigel Quinney was pleased to award Man of the Match to Tommy Wright.
