AFTER their sur­prise but well earned vic­tory last week away at fourth placed Fars­ley Celtic, Sut­ton Coldfield Town face a run of games at home against fel­low strug­glers, which will be six point­ers if they can get wins.

They be­gan this af­ter­noon with a game against Stalybridge Celtic who are also strug­gling at the foot of the di­vi­sion.

The first half was a scrappy af­fair with nothing be­tween the two sides.

Nei­ther goal­keeper was called upon to make a telling save and both mid­fields were can­celling them­selves out in a tight and tense af­fair.

Nei­ther team had a worth­while shot on goal and the half came to a tame end.

In the 47th minute Dan O’Cal­laghan was through one-on-one but the keeper saved at his feet and the ball came out to Matt Wa­ters who sided footed it wide.

In the 52nd minute Sut­ton took the lead when their lead­ing scorer Gur­jit Singh re­ceived a nice pass from Reece Webb and was able to curl his shot into the cor­ner of Stalybridge’s net from the edge of the box.

Sut­ton in­creased their lead in the 61st minute when Matt Wa­ters cut in from the left and gave the keeper no chance.

This was an ex­cel­lent win hard earned and started Sut­ton on a win­ning run, this be­ing their sec­ond vic­tory on the trot.
