Sutton in control of their own destiny

Ramgarhia 4, Long Sutton 5

Long Sutton returned from the East End with three excellent Premier B points after another topsy turvy clash.

As the game took shape both sides created chances and it was the visitors who took the lead the ball was stolen on the edge of the circle and fed to Nick Bailey who calmly finished.

The home team then came into the match and keeper Jake Loweth produced a number of saves and Josh Fyson made a superb clearance from the line before Ramgarhia found an equaliser with an unstoppable shot into the corner. Sutton then retook the lead with a good break allowing Gary Hales to cross for Bailey to deflect his second.

The second period opened with Sutton pressing and they soon found a third as Jimmy Harrison blasted the ball goalwards allowing Hales to deflect in at the back post.

The hosts soon pulled a goal back and it took superb defending particularly by Tom Baguley and Andy Shore to counter their sublime skills. The equaliser came from the penalty spot after a foul in the circle.

Sutton then pushed forward and regained the lead as Hales unleashed an unstoppable shot. Ramgarhia came back again with Loweth denying several shots before a fine finish saw them level.

The game had one final twist as with just two minutes left Jeremy Watt found Bailey in the circle and his pass made it through to Hales who tapped home. Mention must go to Will Cook and Danny Sisson both enjoying good games playing out of position.

Sutton face Peterborough 2nds (Peele School 1pm) in their final home match knowing that they now have control of their own fate in the league.
