St Albans City’s mini-revival hit the buffers at home to Sutton United with a 3-0 defeat.

City had come into the game on the back of two successive victories; a 6-0 drubbing of Whitehawk last Saturday was followed by a 1-0 success over Hemel Hempstead Town on Tuesday in the semi-final of the Herts Charity Cup.

Saints made four changes from the side that beat Hemel.

Joe Welch, Eddie Oshodi, Louie Theophanous and Charlie MacDonald all returned to the starting line-up in place of Michael Brennan, Scott Thomas, Michael Thalassitis and Jonathan Edwards.

However, the run of clean sheets was ended as early as the fourth minute when Ryan Burge pounced to put second-placed Sutton in front.

That stayed the way of things until the seventh minute of the second half when Burge doubled his, and his side’s, lead.

Dean Beckwith put the game beyond City on 61 minutes with a third.
