Ben Williamson’s goal gave Eastleigh a narrow win over Sutton in the National League. Craig Eastmond and Kieron Cadogan threatened for Sutton in the first half, with first Graham Stack and then Andrew Boyce to the rescue.Eastleigh began the second half with a shot direct from the kick-off and then a Paul McCallum volley, both easily gathered by goalkeeper Jamie Butler.
They broke through, though, just before the hour when Mark Yeates took on the defence and when his shot was blocked, Williamson followed up to score his first goal for the club.Yeates and substitute James Constable went close to a second but one proved enough as Ross Lafayette was just unable to reach Jeffrey Monakana’s late cross.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsLive TextLine-upsEastleigh37Stack20Hoyte3Green14Togwell27JohnsonBooked at 14mins22Boyce7WoodSubstituted forConstableat 80’minutes10Yeates19Hollands9McCallumSubstituted forZebroskiat 70’minutes25WilliamsonSubstituted forMcAllisterat 70’minutesSubstitutes8Constable11Zebroski17Stearn19McAllister26MatthewsSutton United26Butler3Thomas4BeckwithBooked at 67mins15EastmondBooked at 76mins8DavisSubstituted forTaylorat 75’minutes6Collins11Cadogan16BaileyBooked at 5mins17SpenceSubstituted forMonakanaat 67’minutes21EmmanuelBooked at 18minsSubstituted forWrightat 68’minutes9LafayetteSubstitutes5John14Dundas19Monakana20Wright23TaylorReferee:Adam BromleyAttendance:1,744Live TextPosted at Match ends, Eastleigh 1, Sutton United 0.Full TimePosted at 90′ Second Half ends, Eastleigh 1, Sutton United 0.SubstitutionPosted at 80′ Substitution, Eastleigh.
