A goal in each half from Byron Harrison and Tom Bolarinwa earned Sutton United a 2-0 victory over Woking on Tuesday night.

In a match of few opportunities, United's Craig Eastmond was unlucky to see his effort hit the crossbar before Harrison scored for the third game in a row when poked home from close range in the 34th minute.

Bolarinwa added the second on 54 minutes when he converted Harry Beautyman's inviting delivery to put daylight between the two sides.

The Cards rarely threatened the U’s as goalkeeper Jamie Butler and his defence comfortably held out to claim a second consecutive clean sheet.

United boss Paul Doswell was pleased with the routine victory, even if some of his players looked a little fatigued.

“We always say that goals change games. So to get one when we did and to get another just after half-time was important,” he told SUFCtv.

“At 2-0 we were relatively comfortable. I thought Woking passed the ball around nicely in the second half without really hurting us.

“We had to conserve a bit of energy in the second half because we haven’t been able to train properly for the past week to 10 days because of the weather.

“You could see a few of our players were running on empty after 60 or 70 minutes, which is unusual for us.

"So we let Woking have the ball for the last 15 or 20 minutes and saw out what was a professional win.”

The win extends Sutton’s unbeaten league run to nine games.

With just 10 fixtures remaining, they sit just two points behind Vanarama National League leaders Macclesfield and three ahead of third-placed Aldershot.

The U’s host 21st-placed Solihull Moors at the Knights Community Stadium this Saturday at 3pm.
