A late own goal from Alex Finney secured Sutton a 2-1 win at Aldershot in the National League.

Sutton began the season with a 3-0 home win over Maidenhead on Saturday and went in front six minutes before the break when Craig Eastmond headed in from Robert Milsom’s free-kick.

Aldershot goalkeeper Mitchell Walker made a fantastic save to foil Milson from another free-kick while Mohamed Bettamer was denied by Dean Bouzanis at the other end.

Bettamer, a recent free transfer signing, did beat Bouzanis with 15 minutes remaining, heading home Craig Tanner’s cross.

But a Will Randall free-kick five minutes from time went in off Finney to condemn Aldershot to a second successive defeat.
