Match Previews

Sutton United (A) Preview

7 December 2023

After an enforced break due to a pair of postponements Town are back in action when they travel to face Sutton United in a re-arranged fixture.

And Simon Weaver’s side will be hoping to continue the run of form shown over the past month or so that has seen them move into the top half of the table with an eye now on the playoff positions.


Our opponents

The 2023/24 season is the third consecutive season in League Two for Sutton, having earned promotion to the EFL a season after Town.

In their first season at this level they missed out on the playoffs by just a single point and followed that up with a mid-table fourteenth placed finish in 2022/23.

This season though they have found the going far tougher and face Town second bottom of the table and seven points from safety.

The 56 goals they have conceded is also a league high and have won just four times this season, although three have been on home soil.

They have steadied the ship of late though, drawing four of the last five including a 1-1 draw on Saturday against Walsall.

Previous meetings

There have been four meetings at this level between the two sides, with Town yet to yield a single point from any of the fixtures.

A season ago the hosts triumphed 2-1 through Kylian Kouassi’s strike after Luke Armstrong’s penalty cancelled out Harry Beautyman’s opener. In the return fixture David Ajiboye’s early goal proved the difference.

In 2021/22 Donovan Wilson netted the only goal of the game in the fixture at Gander Green Lane before the U’s secured a 2-0 on the final day of the season at the Envirovent Stadium.

The man in charge

Steve Morrison is in charge, having replaced long-time boss Matt Gray at the start of January. Having previously coached at Cardiff City he was in the hot seat at Isthmian Premier League side Hornchurch until his appointment at Sutton.

Morrison made over 600 appearances in a playing career spanning clubs such as Stevenage, Norwich, Leeds and most notably Millwall.

Ones to watch

Harry Smith has proved the standout performer so far this season with the forward netting seven times and adding two assists since his summer move from Leyton Orient.

Former Carlisle striker Omari Patrick is closed behind in the goal tally having struck on five occasions with Harry Beautyman adding four goals.

One-time Town loanee Josh Coley has seen plenty of action this season after joining on a permanent move from Exeter and he has assisted on four goals.

Craig Eastmond, Robert Milsom and Harry Beautyman are all familiar names stretching back to the two sides’ National League days.


The club were long time members of the Athenian and Isthmian Leagues before earning promotion to the Conference in 1989. They fell back into the Isthmian League in 1991, where they remained until being elected to the newly-formed Conference South in 2004.

They suffered a further relegation in 2008 before bouncing back in 2010/11, enduring a couple of near missed in the playoffs before winning the title in 2015/16.

In the National League the club reached the playoffs in 2018, being defeated at the semi-final stage, before earning a historic promotion.

Before promotion to the Football League the club was most notable for its FA Cup exploits, having defeated recent-winners Coventry in 1988/89 in round three and then reached the fifth round in 2016/17, beating Leeds United before being knocked out by Arsenal.

Team news

Town continue to be without longer term absentees Mark Oxley, Lewis Thomas, Rod McDonald and Sam Folarin but hope that the recent break in action sees the likes of Stephen Dooley, Warren Burrell and Kayne Ramsay recover from knocks sustained in the victory at Forest Green.

Match Reports

Sutton 1-2 Town - Muldoon brace at Sutton lifts Town up to eighth

30 January 2024

Jack Muldoon scored twice as Town claimed a 2-1 win away at Sutton, moving to up eighth, just one point off the play-off places, in the process.

Simon Weaver made two changes on the night with Matty Foulds missing out due to a groin injury and Anthony O’Connor due to illness. In place of the pair was Warren Burrell and Toby Sims to cement the back four.

There was also a familiar face in the Sutton lineup on the night with former Town loanee Josh Coley earning himself a place in the starting lineup having joined Sutton in the summer.

Town were put under pressure early on from Sutton United who created a few early chances, the best coming on 13 minutes as James Belshaw was called into action for the first time with a brilliant save following a wicked deflection which looked to be taking the ball beyond his reach, but he showed great athleticism to tip the ball over the bar.

Sutton had great joy down the wings and proved to be a threat in the air as on 25 minutes, the centre back Sowunmi had a header which just went past the post which had Belshaw worried.

After a start which the travelling supporters were not used to seeing in recent games, Town grew into the match with the first dangerous move stemming from Dean Cornelius down the right wing. His delivery to the edge of the box found Matty Daly who met the cross with a volley which was headed for the corner, but Bouzanis in the Sutton goal got across well to prevent the goal.

On 33 minutes the first card of the game was shown to Stephen Dooley for bringing down Harry Beautyman in the middle of the Town half.

Town started to push on in the final third creating many chances before the break. On 38 minutes George Thomson plucked a forward ball from Toby Sims out of the sky before jinking past his opposing defender and released a shot which was goal bound if it wasn’t for a vital block from Sowunmi.

Shortly after, Muldoon nearly broke the deadlock before the break as Thomson released him through the middle, he took the shot early which caught Bouzanis off guard, but the ball just trickled past the post and both sides went into half-time with the scores all level.

Sutton had a quick start to the second half as Patrick struck the post after turning Warren Burrell and fired a shot from the right side of the area which Liam Gibson deflected onto the post.

The home side gained momentum early on in the half as Burrell was the second to be shown a yellow for a late high tackle on N’Guessan.

Simon Weaver attempted to turn the tide in Town’s favour making a change 10 minutes into the second half opting to bring on Levi Sutton in replace of Dooley.

And indeed, the tide did turn as Muldoon gave Town the lead on 58 minutes and made it seven for him this season. It was a sweeping move which stemmed from a crossfield ball from Thomson then a delicate touch from Abraham Odoh to put the ball in the path of Daly before delivering the ball low across the face of goal for Muldoon to meet it and slide the ball home.

After the goal, Sutton were keen not to let the game pass them by and strived to create frequent chances. On 67 minutes, Levi Sutton earned himself a yellow card with a tactical foul having no choice but to stop a counter attack in its tracks and prevent Sutton from gaining momentum to draw level.

With 15 minutes to go Town doubled the lead with Muldoon bagging himself a brace on the night. The ball was won high up the pitch from Thomson who showed composure to pass the ball infield to Kayne Ramsay who drove at the defence and threaded a neat through pass into the path of Muldoon who showed class and composure to slot the ball beyond the keeper.

The game was not all yet done as Sutton pushed to find a route back into the game as Patrick put a low cross into the box which Angol met but his strike could only rattle the crossbar and over.

Sutton brought one back late on to give Town a few scares with minutes to go as Jackson fired a low shot from the edge of the box following a short corner. The strike evaded Gibson who attempted to clear, but his air kick resulted in the ball passing through the legs of Belshaw.

Despite a late push to find an equaliser for Sutton, Town showed maturity to run down the five additional minutes and see out a hard fought victory. The travelling fans delighted with the victory and will be hoping for Town to take the terrific form into the weekend for a difficult test against league leaders Stockport County.
