Wrexham’s Elliot Lee scores his side’s winning goal at Sutton

Wrexham kept up the pressure at the top of Sky Bet League Two with a 2-1 victory at Sutton.

The Dragons’ first victory at Gander Green Lane saw the hosts slip back to the bottom of the Football League.

Arthur Okonkwo parried Omari Patrick’s early effort before tipping Charlie Lakin’s strike onto the bar.

Wrexham striker Jack Marriott missed the best effort of the first half hour when he fired wide.

Will Boyle scored from close range on the stroke of half-time after Sutton failed to clear Luke Bolton’s cross.

Okonkwo denied Sutton an equaliser with a great save from Nino Adom-Malaki’s strike.

The deserved equaliser came in the 76th minute when Craig Eastmond was felled just outside the box and Lakin’s deflected free-kick beat Okonkwo.

Paul Mullin headed against the bar before Ollie Palmer was denied by Dean Bouzanis for the visitors.

Elliot Lee had the last word as he swept home with five minutes to go and Okonkwo ensured the points with a late save from Lakin’s volley.
