Sutton United 1-3 Maidstone United

Sutton suffered a surprise defeat as Maidstone came from behind with three goals in quick succession to triumph at Gander Green Lane.

The hosts, who went into the contest top of the National League having won four of their opening five games this season, took the lead in the 35th minute when Tommy Wright was fed by Josh Taylor and finished past Lee Worgan.

Maidstone brought things level in the 68th through Magnus Okuonghae's header from a corner, and six minutes later they netted again, as substitute Jack Paxman sent a fine strike into the top corner.

Jay Saunders' side then wrapped things up with eight minutes to go as Joe Pigott beat Jamie Butler, with Sutton slipping to second in the table behind Dagenham on goal difference.
