Sutton defeated by Corsham
Heavy overnight rain left a soft pitch, a foretaste of the ground conditions to come.
Sutton were hopeful of getting back to winning ways against a team sitting six places lower and with five fewer points.
Fraser Thomas continued in goal with a back four of Tom Clark, Kai Long, Adam Crooks and Jack Dicker, a midfield of captain Jack Keen, Sam Downes, Zach Francis and Corey Rawlings and a front two of Josh Keen and Mason Daggar.
From the outset it was apparent that Corsham are a better side than their league position suggests and a god open game ensued.
On 10 minutes Thomas brought off a good save from a goalbound drive and 5 minutes later Snoddy in the Corsham goal did well to stop a Long header from a Downes free kick.
On 20 minutes Thomas again saved well, diving to his left.
Corsham broke the deadlock in the 31st minute, an attach down the right and a low hard cross to the far post eluding the defence was smartly converted.
Sutton made the first sub a minute later, Francis being replaced by Ben Alexander.
