Salford City 2-0 Sutton United

Salford made it two wins out of two with a routine victory over play-off chasing Sutton.

Graham Alexander's men, who had gone five games without a win before Saturday's 1-0 success at Ebbsfleet, cemented their place in the play-offs thanks to goals from Emmanuel Dieseruvwe and Carl Piergianni.

Dieseruvwe opened the scoring in the 12th minute when he latched onto a through-ball from Lois Maynard and chipped the ball over advancing Sutton goalkeeper Ross Worner.

Piergianni extended the Ammies' advantage 10 minutes into the second half when the ball fell to him in the box from a deep free-kick and he slotted home underneath Worner.

The result leaves Alexander's men in fifth position - six points behind pacesetters Wrexham - with a game in hand.
