SUTTON COLDFIELD TOWN 2 STALYBRIDGE CELTIC 0
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.
