Sutton 1 Salford 2
A disappointing result after a fascinatingly competitive match for the first hour. Sutton took a deserved lead in the 62nd minute but ruined their prospects with a player being red-carded 5 minutes later. Hanging on lasted until two goals from Salford, 10 and 3 minutes from full-time, ruined the party – it seemed inevitable with a one man advantage.
Sutton nearly nicked a point in the last minute of extra-time, but it wasn’t to be. Disappointing!
