Heading into the play-off final, Truro were missing not just centre-back Arran Pugh who was unavailable due to suspension but also his partner Steve Payne who picked up a virus mid-week. This saw midfielder Ladjie Soukouna move to centre-back with Cody Cooke taking his place in the midfield.
Jamie Lowry lined up for a free kick in the 11th minute and struck the post with the first real chance of the game. Then in the 15th minute, Jared Sims played a ball through to Lowry who hit the top left corner to put Truro in the lead.
JJ Hooper found himself one on one with Ollie Chenoweth in the 16th minute but put the ball wide with a terrible miss. Hooper then put the ball in the back of the net in the 29th minute only for it to be disallowed as he was ruled to be offside.
Bobby Devyne found himself one on one with Chenoweth in the 42nd minute after Hooper headed the ball on from a goal kick, Devyne placed his shot to the left and levelled the score at 1-1 heading into half time.
The second half was all Sutton United, they dominated possession but failed to convert. The closest chance came from Jack Gant who hit the post in the 81st minute. In the 87th minute Stewart Yetton had Truro’s only chance of the half but failed to get it on target, sending the game into extra time.
Truro came out like a completely different team in extra time. Lowry attempted an audacious free kick from 40 yards out in the 104th minute hitting the cross bar, the ball fell back to Stewart Yetton who put the ball in to give Truro the lead. After the break Truro continued to dominate until Damian Scannell went up for a header in the last minute of extra time only to hit the post to see Truro earn the victory and promotion to Skrill Premier.
