Sutton were very lucky to progress against a more deserving United side who were their own undoing. Arriving at Coles Lane the pitch was snow covered after the overnight flurry and only came here as I knew the game would be on. Saying that it was bloomin freezing though .
This game was in the Challenge Bowl with Sutton in the blue strip. Coventry dominated the game from the word go and took the lead on 21 minutes stroking the ball home from 12 yards. They hit the post also before Sutton found a way back in just before half time, a fierce shot cannoned off an outstretched leg into the net.
Straight after half time, Coventry went ahead again , heading home a cross from the right. In 5 minutes of madness, Coventry world fell apart as Sutton made it 2 2 , giving a free kick away the ball was headed off the post, the loose ball was prodded home. Sutton won the game after a player came in from the right yo send a low angled ball beyond the keeper at the near post.
