TWO Steve Bugg headers were enough to secure Soham's league double over Sudbury, as Ian Benjamin's team once again got the better of the league leaders.
The Suffolk high-flyers had taken the lead in the first half but Bugg connected with a Matt Robinson corner on 52 minutes to level matters.
Then, two minutes from time, Bugg got his head to an Andy Furnell centre to make the decisive contribution.

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.
