STAMFORD 0-0 SUTTON COLDFIELD TOWN
Stamford lost second place in the league and the chance to gain ground on leaders Coalville after a stalemate at Kettering road on Saturday. In a game with few clear cut chances a draw was a fair result.
Sutton had an early free kick charged down in the penalty area by Jack McGovern and the ball was scrambled clear.
Andy Hall was guilty of missing Stamfords best chance of the game after only ten minutes, Ben Saunders took on the Sutton defence and crossed Lee Evans in goal could only spill the ball out to Hall but his effort looped wide with the goal at his mercy.
Suttons best chance of the half was a free kick swung in by Jamie Sheldon to Luke Chapman but he couldn't get the better of Richard Jones and the Daniels skipper headed it out for a corner underneath his own crossbar.
Stamfords only other real chance other than half chances came when Adam Hewitts free kick was flicked on by Ricky Miller to Jones and his header was just clawed round the post by Evans in goal.
The only other point of note from the first half were a Miller effort that looped wide of goal and a Jordan Hempenstall effort that was deflected wide for a corner.
The second half had even fewer chances than the first half Adam Hewitt dropped a cross in to Ben Saunders but the big striker was just stretching too much to get there before Evans in goal.
Scott Lycett put a perfect cross over to Sutton sub Luke Edwards but he could only head wide from five yards.
Sutton had the ball in the net with ten minutes to go, Craig Milligans corner went in off the far post but referee Liam Jones had already blown for a foul on Daniels keeper Matt Finlay.
Over all a fair result with two evenly matched teams pushing for the playoff places.
