SUTTON returned to winning ways in spectacular fashion as they brushed away Scunthorpe in the Sky Bet League Two.

Three goals in a ten minute first half spell gave Sutton full control in the fixture with goals coming from Robert Milson, Will Randall and Joseph Mohamed Kizzi.

In the second half Randell made it a brace for himself before an own-goal from Harry Beautyman gave Scunthorpe a consolation goal.

The game started in a quiet fashion with the most exciting event being the referee Simon Mather pulling up with an injury and needing to be replaced.

Just before the half-hour mark, Sutton were gifted the chance to take the lead as Manny Onariase's foul in the box gave Milsom the chance from the spot.

The midfielder made no mistake and converted the penalty via a touch from goalkeeper Rory Watson.

Little more than a minute later U's had a second, Wilson shaking off a challenge in midfield and playing the ball wide to Randall, who cut in past Ross Millen and curled a low shot in to the far corner of the net from just outside the penalty area.

Millen's complaints that he had been fouled by the scorer saw him booked, the referee's indication of advantage being played suggesting that he felt any foul was the other way.

The U's added a superb third goal nine minutes later, Ajiboye beginning a move that involved Milsom, Randall and Bugiel, whose pass to the overlapping Joe Kizzi allowed the defender to fire a shot past Watson.

In the 62nd minute, the U's netted their fourth of the match as Bugiel cut in from the right and played a pass to Wilson just before being fouled.

The referee played a good advantage Wilson opted against going for goal himself and instead set up Randall.

His shot squirmed underneath Watson and into the goal.

U's then made changes, Coby Rowe and Harry Beautyman coming on to continue their return from injuries, and for a moment Beautyman thought he might celebrate with a goal as his shot from outside the area was blocked.

He did end up on the scoresheet, but not as he would have hoped as a Scunthorpe counter-attack after Watson had punched clear a Milsom free-kick ended with Rekeil Pyke crossing low, and Beautyman sliding in to clear but able only to turn the ball into his own net, although Liam Feeney would almost certainly have scored but for Beautyman's intervention. 

A minute later Bouzanis had to save a long range shot from Jai Rowe, but the visitors were unable to make any further impression on the game as U's closed out a comfortable victory and moved to within two points of an automatic promotion place as the top three in the division all lost.
