Tommy Wright steps off bench to help maintain Sutton’s unbeaten start

Substitute Tommy Wright scored a late winner as Sutton continued their unbeaten start to the Vanarama National League season with a 1-0 win over by Boreham Wood at Meadow Park.

The two sides came into the game sitting just one place and one point away from each other in the standings, and a hard-fought stalemate looked likely until Wright struck eight minutes from time.

Sutton midfielder Craig Eastmond came closest to a breakthrough in the first half but the former Arsenal man was twice denied by David Gregory and saw a header cleared off the line.

At the other end, Tyrone Marsh saw an early effort saved by Jamie Butler as Boreham Wood sought to build on their opening win of the season against Dagenham last weekend.

Gregory was back in the action on the hour mark to deny Robert Milsom before his team-mate Tom Bolarinwa saw a shot deflected wide.

Sutton, now up to sixth and one of just three unbeaten teams in the division, continued to push and were rewarded in the 82nd minute when Wright, having only recently replaced Omar Bugiel, fired past Gregory.
