Woking went down to a two-goal defeat against local rivals Sutton at Gander Green Lane on Tuesday evening.
Goals either side of half time from Byron Harrison and Tom Bolarinwa were enough to see of Woking.
Woking made one change to the side that had played out a goalless draw against Boreham Wood almost two weeks ago, with Richard Orlu coming back into the side in place of the unfortunate Damon Lathrope, who has had to end his playing career through a broken leg, which has subsequently meant that Damon has had to retire from playing football.
Sutton started on the front foot with Craig Eastmond going close with a cross come shot that skimmed the top of the bar in the eighth minute. The hosts always looked the likely to break the deadlock, which they duly converted following a corner that eventually was bundled home by on loan Barrow Striker Byron Harrison in the 33rd minute.
The Cards felt they had good claims for a penalty when Anthony Cook appeared to be pushed which looked like the offence possibly happened inside the area, but Referee David Rock had other ideas, and waved away Woking appeals.
Sutton doubled their advantage in the 54th minute when a ball across from the left from Beautyman fell to Tom Bolarinwa who slotted the ball past Nathan Baxter. The hosts almost added a third moments later when Harrison’s shot was smothered by Baxter. The hosts continued on the front foot with Harrison going close with a volley into the side netting. The Cards only notable chance fell to Orlu late on, but his shot was high and wide.
On the night, Sutton looked a very well organised side, who deserved all three points. As for the Cards ,they will back at the Laithwaite Stadium on Saturday, in search of three points as they look to get back to winning ways once again at Home.
