Crewe 1 – 0 Sutton United

An early strike from Courtney Baker-Richardson earned Crewe a 1-0 success in League Two against Sutton to secure the Railwaymen’s third victory in their first four games.

Baker-Richardson, making his first league start since joining the Cheshire side in the summer, capitalized on Dan Agyei’s good work down the left, slipping too much to meet the striker’s low cross and pushing the ball from close range in the 12th minute.

Earlier, Harry Beautyman had failed to make the most of a wayward pass from Crewe’s ranks and, when the ball fell well past Sutton’s midfield goal, he pushed his effort over the top. of the crossbar.

Agyei also set up Lachlan Brook with another fine delivery, but this time Rob Milsom was smart to block the effort from the on-loan Brentford winger.

Sutton offered a physical threat as they went forward and they almost took advantage of an indecisive defense with Kwame Thomas forcing a handling error from Arthur Okonkwo as the Crewe keeper came off his line. Beautyman picked up the loose ball and launched a 20-yard effort off the crossbar.

Agyei was a potent threat for Crewe and – after the break – the former Oxford man forced Sutton goalkeeper Jack Rose to rock a hard-hitting drive.

The visitors continued to offer a threat and Okonkwo blocked a powerful angled drive from Joe Kizzi, who also headed towards the end of the net.
