Sutton moved to within a point of the top of the Vanarama National League table in an exciting and at times ill-tempered game at the Knights Community Stadium. After both Josh Taylor and Kieron Cadogan had hit the woodwork Ross Lafayette rounded off a thrilling counter attack with a fierce shot in off the post in the third minute of first half injury time. Craig Dundas scored the second just before the hour, and although Tom Denton headed Halifax back in to the game Lafayette headed in a Kenny Davis free kick. Halifax skipper Matt Brown missed a penalty when he hit the bar, but Scott Garner’s goal five minutes from time led to a nervous finish before U’s could claim the points. Full report to follow.
