Harrogate Town 2-0 Sutton United

Harrogate struck late in each half to earn victory at home to Sutton.

George Thomson opened the scoring before Jack Muldoon sealed the points with a penalty in added time.

Sutton were left to rue Jamie Collins' penalty miss which would have brought them level.

Thomson got the hosts up and running in the 35th minute, latching on to an Alex Bradley through-ball and finishing coolly.

The visitors were handed a great chance to get back on level terms 10 minutes after the break when George Smith brought down Aaron Jarvis in the area, but James Belshaw kept out Collins' spot-kick low to his left-hand side.

Belshaw had to be alert again as he dived to his left to keep out Will Randall's free-kick.

Sutton's hopes of salvaging a point disappeared at the death when Muldoon, having been brought down by Jamie Butler, got up to dispatch the resulting penalty.
