Sutton can return to the top of the Ryman League if they avoid defeat in tonight's game at Croydon Athletic (7.45pm - travel details here. - Note we will be wearing amber tonight, not white as shown in the programme last week). The game was originally scheduled for mid-September, but postponed as Croydon took time out to organise their affairs following the fallout from the cricket spot-fixing inquiry which affected the club's owner. Since returning to action with a much changed squad they have picked up two points from their seven league games played, with draws against Tooting and Wealdstone, and lie next to bottom of the table. Their side tonight could include former U's defender Tom Hughes and striker Stefan Joseph, a regular for Sutton at reserve level in recent seasons, while their main goal threat since returning to action has come from experienced striker Reggie Savage. Craig Dundas is available for Sutton again after serving his three match suspension but left-sided defender or midfielder Ronayne Marsh-Brown, who joined this week from Harrow Borough, will not be eligible until next Tuesday's game against Kingstonian as he serves a suspension after being sent off playing for Harrow last month.
The reserves are playing Colliers Wood tonight at Banstead in the second round of the Surrey Premier Cup (7.30), but on Saturday now have a free day after their scheduled Suburban League game at Woking was postponed due to Woking's involvement in the frist round of the FA Cup at Brighton.
