An unfortunate own goal and goal machine Nick Bailey (2) made it 3-1 at half time.
Sutton went 4-3 behind but Bailey won two penalty flicks, the second scored by Harrison to level. Sutton captain Sisson won it with a jinking run beating five Spalding defenders before scoring.

Sutton celebrated a vital three points and it was no surprise when Fyson opened the scoring, finishing extremely well.
The second half was a scrappy affair. Sutton did double their lead through a wonder strike from Sisson, although Waltham got a goal back. Sutton held on with a superb man of the match performance from the returning keeper Simon Clark.
