Roman Glass put five past the hosts



This game was played in a continuous drizzle in front of a poor crowd of just 25.
With Roman Glass sitting two places above Sutton with one more point a close game was expected.
Fraser Thomas returned in goal behind a back four of Ben Snell, Kai Long, Adam Crooks and new signing Reece John, a midfield of captain Jack Keen ,Corey Rawlings, Tom Clark and Chris Hind, and with Mason Daggar and Josh Keen up front.

Roman Glass opened the scoring after 15 minutes, a long ball played through the centre of the defence was well collected by a speedy forward who converted cleanly in the corner giving Thomas no chance.
On 28 minutes Thomas brought off a good save diving to his left.
On 34 minutes Josh Keen had a good chance to equalise but shot narrowly wide of the right post.
Roman Glass doubled their lead a minute before half time, a long ball beat the defence and the keeper, the shot rebounding off the right post falling to a Roman Glass forward who side footed into an open goal.
