Sutton United missed out on the chance to put pressure on the National League leaders as they were held to a goalless draw by Ebbsfleet.Tommy Wright fired wide after an early spell of pressure from the hosts before Ross Lafayette was also off target after meeting Kieron Cadogan’s header.Lafayette saw his shot blocked after being played in by Wright, while at the other end Jack Powell blazed over the bar and Danny Kedwell fired wide following a swift counter attack.
The finishing at Gander Green Lane did not improve after the break.Louis John fired over the bar from a cross by Cadogan, who then had an effort tipped round the post on 73 minutes by the alert Nathan Ashmore.Report supplied by the Press AssociationLine-upsLive TextLine-upsSutton United26Butler4BeckwithBooked at 55mins5John11Cadogan8Davis6Collins23TaylorBooked at 29minsSubstituted forJeffreyat 60’minutes16Bailey14Dundas20WrightSubstituted forCoombesat 75’minutesBooked at 84mins9LafayetteBooked at 13minsSubstituted forThomasat 60’minutesSubstitutes3Thomas10Coombes17Spence22Walton24JeffreyEbbsfleet1Ashmore24Magri6Clark7PowellSubstituted forBrandyat 86’minutes26BushSubstituted forMcCoyat 83’minutes18MamboBooked at 77mins25CoulsonSubstituted forWestonat 65’minutes8Drury4RanceBooked at 58mins12Cook9KedwellSubstitutes2McCoy11Weston13Miles19Mills29BrandyReferee:Alan DaleAttendance:2,197Live TextPosted at Match ends, Sutton United 0, Ebbsfleet United 0.Full TimePosted at 90′ Second Half ends, Sutton United 0, Ebbsfleet United 0.SubstitutionPosted at 86′ Substitution, Ebbsfleet United.
