Bristol Rovers 2-0 Sutton United, League Two: quick-fire match report


Bristol Rovers 4-2-3-1



Sutton United 4-4-2

Half Time: 1 - 0 Memorial Stadium ( Attendance: NA )
1 min

Sutton United’s 10-match unbeaten League Two run came to a disappointing end with a 2-0 defeat to Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.

The home side took a fourth-minute lead when Harry Anderson connected sweetly with a low right-footed drive from just outside the box.

And they should have been out of sight by the break as Elliot Anderson went close on three separate occasions; Aaron Collins shot straight at Sutton keeper Dean Bouzanis while another effort was ruled out for offside.

Paul Coutts also had an opportunity to double the advantage on 45 minutes – only to see his penalty saved by Bouzanis after a foul on Collins by Coby Rowe.

However, Collins did make it 2-0 seconds after the interval, taking advantage of Bouzanis’ rash decision to leave his area by rounding him and scoring from out near the right touchline.

The result leaves Sutton fifth in the table, three points off the automatic promotion spots.
