Sutton United 2-1 AFC Fylde

Sutton held on for a narrow victory over 10-man Fylde to extend their unbeaten National League run to three matches and move up a place to fourth.

After a largely uneventful first half, the home side took the lead when Craig Dundas slotted home the opener four minutes before the break.

Moments later, Sutton's score was doubled following a great break from Josh Taylor, who squared the ball into the box and visiting defender Simon Grand was unfortunate to turn the ball into his own net.

Having gone in 2-0 at half-time, the visitors were reduced to 10 men after 64 minutes when Lewis Montrose was handed his second yellow card for a poor challenge on Craig Eastmond.

But Grand made amends for his first-half blunder when he reduced the deficit with five minutes remaining.
