Sutton United manager Paul Doswell was honest in defeat after the U’s missed out on the chance of going to Wembley losing 3-2 at home to Boreham Wood on Sunday.

The U’s have to reflect on what might have been after a lacklustre first hour in oppressive heat allowed the visitors to open a two-goal lead.

Although United rallied in the latter stages, the damage had been done and Wood progressed to the play-off final at Wembley Stadium against Tranmere Rovers on Saturday.

“We had every advantage going for us,” Doswell told SUFCtv. “They played on Thursday night, they lost two or three of their best players and we had a big home crowd behind us but we didn’t take advantage of it and that’ll be a regret during the summer.

“But I will reflect on it and the disappointment will stick with me for a while because I wanted it for the club, the volunteers, supporters, staff and players. We deserved to keep going for one more week.”
