The ding-dong battle for the National League title continued on Tuesday night when Sutton United regained the leadership - but only just - from Torquay United, while Stockport County dropped points in third place. 

While anxious Gulls fans looked on, Sutton pipped lowly Woking 3-2 in a frantic finish at Gander Green Lane - the Cards narrowed the deficit three minutes from time but could not quite force an equaliser. 

Stockport were held to a 1-1 draw by Play-Off outsiders Dagenham & Redbridge at Edgeley Park, and that's where Torquay head next on Sunday (12.15pm) for a kick-off put back 24 hours for live BT Sport TV coverage. 

All the leading sides have three games left, and Sutton now top the table with 78 points and a goal-difference of +32, from Torquay (77/+29), Stockport (72/+36) and Hartlepool Utd (70/+20). 

Sutton travel to Maidenhead on Saturday, before meeting Hartlepool at home (May 22) and then Barnet away (May 29).  After Stockport away, Torquay meet Barnet at home and Altrincham away.
