The result means that Soham have taken six points out of six this season against the reigning champions, following a 1-0 win on their ground in December.
Benjamin said he never felt his team would be on the wrong end of the scoreline. "We just needed to sort a couple of things out at half-time, which we did, but I never felt for one minute that we would lose," he said.
When asked about the secret to beating Sudbury, he replied: "I think we've got good-quality players and when we didn't have them three or four weeks ago we weren't getting the results."
Soham welcomed Martin Bromwich back from injury and he played in a back-four alongside Scott Johnson, Paul Hill and Stuart Williams - a defence which had kept five clean sheets in seven games earlier in the season.
"They're able to concentrate for long periods and it gives me confidence to pick a defence like that," said the manager, who added that a top-six finish was a real possibility.
