Sutton United got back to winning ways to boost their promotion hopes with a routine 3-1 victory at struggling Oldham Athletic.

After the hosts went close from Hallam Hope’s header, Sutton took the lead in the 20th minute through Ricky Korboa who charged down a poor clearance from Oldham’s Benny Couto.

Sutton continued to dominate with Adam Lovatt and Ben Goodliffe going close before doubling their advantage shortly after the restart when Korboa darted on to Kenny Davis’ through-ball and coolly fired past Latics keeper Danny Rogers.

Hope almost halved Oldham’s deficit when his angled snapshot struck the crossbar, only for substitute Harry Beautyman to make it three from the penalty spot after Tope Obadeyi had felled David Ajiboye.

Oldham youngster Will Sutton headed home a late consolation but it was too little, too late as the Us edged to within goal difference of the Play-Off places.
