Maidenhead United are making a habit of scoring important late goals and Saturday was no different as they beat Sutton United 1-0, despite playing the majority of the second half with ten men.
Ryan Upward put the finishing touches on a powerful surge forward by Harold Odametey as the Magpies picked up all three points against Sutton for the fourth time in two seasons.
Maidenhead played the majority of the second half with 10 men after Mike Fondop saw red for a high foot before Craig Eastmond was dismissed in second half stoppage time for the visitors.
A tight competitive game was marred right at the death following Upward’s goal after a clash on the sideline saw a member of the Sutton bench sent off.
Maidenhead moved nine points clear of the relegation zone with the win.
