Ely slipped to a disappointing defeat to Long Sutton at the Downham Road ground, on Saturday.

In a promising start to the match, Ely moved quickly through the gears and put pressure on the visitor’s goal.

But they found the Sutton keeper in inspired form, and their attacks were denied.

A slip in concentration at the other end of the pitch saw Ely go in at half-time, 2-0 down.
