Sutton who were defeated last time out started the game strongly and played the windy conditions very well. Causing the MVP rearguard some problems early doors. However, we rode this early storm and grew into the game more with our own attacking forays into the Sutton Half. Fotso on the left wing was perhaps MVPs most potent threat getting into some excellent advanced positions.
HT Sutton Ath 0 MVP 1
MVP came out with renewed purpose in the second half. We dug in well and defended against some decent approach work by Sutton. Some second half changes further reinforced MVP and it was the rapid Mbonge who capitalised on one of many counter attacks with a very cool finish to make it 2-0. Further pressure on the Sutton backline paid off with our third goal a brilliant solo effort from McCarthy to increase our lead to 3-0.
Sutton to their credit continued to battle and managed to reduce the arrears with a close range effort. Then they managed to grab another with a nice headed goal from a hotly disputed corner.
The whistle was blown to signal the end and another 3 points on the board.
