Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Sutton United

Craig Dundas scored the only goal as Sutton climbed to fourth in the fledgling National League standings with victory over Tranmere.

Dundas found the net for visitors Sutton in the 32nd minute after racing clear from a throw-in to slide the ball past Scott Davies from 20 yards.

Tranmere, who recorded their first league win of the season with a 3-1 victory over Woking on Tuesday, came close early in the second half when Andy Cook hit the underside of the bar from Liam Ridehalgh's cross.

Sutton almost added a second in the 67th minute when Kenny Davis' shot was blocked and Craig Eastmond was also denied with the follow-up.
