First half goals by Jamie Collins, a penalty, and Dean Beckwith saw Sutton open their campaign with a win for the first time ever at National League level and the first time in any competition since 2009. Collins netted after Craig Dundas had been fouled by defender Joe Widdowson, and Beckwith scored in the opening game of the season as he did last year, turning in a superb Ross Lafayette cross.
