Craig Eastmond (above) scored for the second consecutive game to give Sutton a battling victory at Ebbsfleet tonight. Eastmond chased a long clearance and forced an error from Jack Powell, intercepting his attempted header back to goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore and lifting the ball in to the net. Although Ebbsfleet saw a lot of the ball their best chances came early on, and Jamie Butler made one superb save just before half time, but in the second half Aaron Drinan, playing his first full game, and substitute Tom Bolarinwa both missed good chances while Dan Wishart hit the bar with a free kick.

Team: Butler, Bennett. Wishart, Eastmond, Clough, Collins, Taylor(Brown), Davis, Lafayette(Bolarinwa), Drinan, Cadogan(Beckwith)
U's were without Harry Beautyman, whose wife went in to labour earlier today, and we wish the family well.
