Boreham Wood fell to their second National League defeat of the season as Tommy Wright’s late goal secured all three points for Sutton United at Meadow Park.

The game looked to be heading for a goalless draw, fitting considering they started the match just a point and a place away from each other in the table. However, Wright popped up with eight minutes to go to win it for the visitors.

Manager Luke Garrard named a completely unchanged squad to the one that beat Dagenham & Redbridge the previous week.

Sutton’s Craig Eastmond came the closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half, but he twice saw efforts saved by David Gregory and also had a header cleared off the line.

For Wood, Tyrone Marsh had an early attempt saved by Jamie Butler, but ultimately they lacked the potency in front of goal that had seen them win convincingly at Dagenham.

Gregory came to their rescue again on the hour mark to deny Robert Milsom, while Sutton also fired wide through Tom Bolarinwa.

The visitors were finally rewarded in the 82nd minute as substitute Wright, who had come on for Omar Bugiel, fired past Gregory to ensure his team remain one of the three unbeaten sides in the league.

Wood, meanwhile, drop to 16th in the table and travel to third-placed Bromley this weekend for a 3.00pm kick-off.
