Sutton Utd up next?


Recommended Posts

So off we go to Sutton on Saturday. A few factoids to stimulate the conversation.

  • Sutton are currently 2nd in the NL with 17 points from 9 games
  • Goals for 17 Goals Against 12
  • Last 3 games: Dagenham (H) 1-1, Wealdstone (A) 3-3 and Wrexham (a) 0-4 on Tuesday night
  • They have conceded 7 goals in the last 2 games
  • The highest place team they have played is Wealdstone (3-3)
  • They have only played 3 teams in the top half of the table
  • Highest score 5-1 against Kings Lynn at home
  • Of the 4 home games played they have Won 2, Drawn 1 and Lost 1
  • Top scorers: Olaofe 4, Beautyman 3, Bugiel 3
  • Home ground is Gander Green Lane which has an artificial pitch

Fixtures so far:

Maidenhead United (H) 3-0

Aldershot (A) 2-1

Weymouth (A) 1-0

Notts County (H) 0-1

Yeovil (A) 2-1

Kings Lynn (H) 5-1

Dagenham (H) 1-1

Wealdstone (A) 3-3

Wrexham (A) 0-4

Based on the teams played so far they have yet to play any of the "title contenders" other Notts County. 

Their last 3 games have shown a drop in the early season form, now might be a good time to play them coming off of a 0-4 defeat midweek.

Head says draw heart says Away win, if we start with Bell up front and use Dann's at some point in the game.

And a plan B when plan A isn't working,

That's were Bell comes in - Plan B

I would like to see us attack a potentially weak defence with 2 out and out wingers, let's be fair they had to come from behind to draw with Wealdstone after being 2 in front, and I would say Wealdstone are about the worst team I have seen so far this season. Taken on the back of a 4 goal defeat at Wrexham on Tuesday then this is a defence which is low on confidence.

Hopefully we can nullify their potent strikeforce, press them in midfield and try and catch them on a rare counter attack when Allen will run 30 or 40 yards through their defence and stick one in the corner. Both our new signings are still struggling with the effects of Covid and should be fit and ready in a couple of weeks.

At least we have been training on similar 3G playing surface this last few days.

really need to deliver on our stated tactics: high tempo, pressing, athletic and playing mainly in oppositions last third.
 

Basically need to play forward and get bodies into the box, then regroup/mark your man and start again

let's go for it first twenty minutes and if that doesnt work we can turn to plan b....to sing us a song?

With a name like Benjamin Paul Ballance-Drew, it was clear to see why he opted for Plan B as a stage name. Whatever happened to him?

This will be the game where we finally get a win! A full squad to choose from now apart from Stenson obviously. 
 

The team should be dying for a win tomorrow it’s got to come at some point and tomorrow will be the day! 
 

2-1 to the shaymen! Come on town
