Stearn rescues a point for Weston with late penalty
WESTON were grateful for an injury-time penalty to extend their Blue Square South unbeaten run to three games.
The visitors were well in control, running the midfield, but were denied extending their lead by some dogged defending by the home back-line, who were missing regular full-backs Martin Slocombe and Jamie Price.
Weston started well and Nabi Diallo had a good effort beaten to safety by Sutton keeper Tom Lovelock.
But on ten minutes, with their first attack, Sutton broke the deadlock when Michael Abnett crossed for Harry Beautyman to fire past home goalkeeper Lloyd Irish.

Before the interval, Irish was tested by Reece Jones' free-kick and had to go full length to deny a low effort from Abnett.
In a couple of Weston attacks, Dale Grubb had a free-kick punched to safety and Kane Ingram had a well-hit shot taken by Lovelock at the second attempt.
After bringing on three second-half substitutes, Sutton continued to dominate. Stefan Payne sent a shot across goal and Payne fired over after sprinting through the defence.
As the game drifted into four minutes of added-on time, Sutton looked to have secured the win, but when defending a Grubb free-kick, skipper Stuart James felled Chris Young and Ross Stearn beat Lovelock from the penalty spot.
Straight after, Sutton were awarded a free-kick in a dangerous position, but Tommy Kavanah fired over the crossbar.
