LEE O'Neill netted an injury-time winner to give Woodbridge a 2-1 win over AFC Sudbury last night.

It means Woodbridge go into the new season on the back of four straight wins.

The visitors had taken a fifth-minute lead when Gareth Heath swivelled to finish well past Marcus Garnham.

Both sides had chances thereafter, with Allicion Blake and Ben Seaman shooting wide for Woodbridge and Sudbury's Simon Head hitting the inside of a post.

Marcus Garnham foiled Tommy Noble twice late on but in between O'Neill capitalised on a mistake by goalkeeper Dave Walton to poke home the winner.
