Two goals in the first five minutes of the second half from Eastleigh's Luke Coulson proved enough to beat Sutton at the Silverlake Stadium this afternoon but not before a fine Sutton fightback which would have earned reward but for a superb performance from goalkeeper Ryan Clarke, signed this week from AFC Wimbledon, whose saves included keeping out a Bedsente Gomis penalty with five minutes left, just after Ross Stearn's low 20-yard shot had reduced the arrears. Full report, with photos, here and Paul Doswell's post-match interview with SUFC TV here. Sutton: Worner, Amankwaah, Wishart, Downer, Eastmond, Collins, Deacon, Gomis, Biamou(Dickson), Fitchett(Hudson-Odoi), Burge(Stearn).
