Sutton United 2-3 Ebbsfleet United

Ebbsfleet climbed off the foot of the National League standings after Gozie Ugwu's stoppage-time penalty saw them beat Sutton at Gander Green Lane.

The Fleet looked set to take a single point from the clash but Ugwu's decisive penalty saw them climb above Chorley on goal difference while Sutton slipped into the bottom four.

Albie Morgan thought he had opened the scoring for Ebbsfleet in the 10th minute but the strike was awarded as an own goal against Sutton goalkeeper Jamie Butler.

The U's were back on level terms soon after, though, when David Ajiboye fired the equaliser in the 23rd minute.

Ebbsfleet hit the front again just after the hour when Josh Payne fired in a fantastic effort from outside of the box after a ball from a cleared corner fell into his path.

Sutton levelled in the 75th minute when Omar Bugiel scored from Robert Milsom's corner before Ugwu scored his late winner from the penalty spot.
