Sutton United 0-3 Braintree Town

Aaron Eyoma set up two goals and added a third as National League bottom side Braintree ended a five-match losing streak with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Sutton at Gander Green Lane.

The home side came close to taking the lead after 15 minutes but Jamie Collins headed Harry Beautyman's corner over the crossbar.

Moments later - at the other end - Robert Atkinson headed wide before team-mate Kodi Lyons-Foster hit the post after 29 minutes, while Sutton goalkeeper Ross Worner saved Luke Allen's penalty three minutes before the break.

The visitors looked to break the deadlock at the start of the second half and they succeeded just after the hour mark as Korrey Henry tapped Eyoma's header past Worner and into the top corner.

Sam Kelly slotted another assist from Eyoma home with 12 minutes remaining to double their score and Eyoma himself added the gloss late on as he fired into the roof of the net to seal their first three points in six games.
