Match ends, Boreham Wood 1, Sutton United 0.
Boreham Wood 1-0 Sutton United
Upwardly mobile Boreham Wood edged into the top seven of the National League with a hard-fought win at home to Sutton.
The Meadow Park club picked up the pace midway through the first half and took the lead when Anthony Jeffrey beat Ross Worner with an effort from a tight angle.
Craig Eastmond nearly equalised just before the break with a block challenge that forced goalkeeper Grant Smith to scramble and save on his line.
Paul Doswell's side contributed fully to a combative affair, and Chris Dickson was unlucky not to ruffle the roof of the net with a header.
The U's battled well, but failed to end a run of six league matches without a win.
