A goal by Max Biamou on the half hour was enough to give Sutton a second consecutive win tonight, but the slender margin did little justice to a performance which saw U's dominate for much of the game against a Boreham Wood side who lost Morgan Ferrier and Anthony Jeffrey to first half injuries.
Biamou scored when he ran on to an Adam Coombes flick to blast a shot past the advancing goalkeeper, but U's might have had more, Nicky Bailey coming closest in the second half with a close range shot wide from a corner. However they were still indebted to on loan goalkeeper Will Puddy for a crucial save to deny Bruno Andrade on the stroke of half time in a one-on-one situation.
Both Craig Eastmond and Simon Downer picked up bookings which will rule them out of Saturday's trip to Barrow and the home game against York.

Team: Puddy, Amankwaah, Spence, Downer, Eastmond, Collins, Deacon, Jebb, Biamou(Gomis), Coombes(Dundas), Bailey.
