Latest News   Sutton v Hornchurch preview
24th April 2009

After 41 games over the past eight months, Sutton's fate in the Ryman League Premier Division will be decided in the last game of the regular season tomorrow. U's defeat at Margate last week, combined with victories for Hornchurch and Carshalton, saw them drop out of the play-off positions in to sixth place, but with Hornchurch the visitors at Gander Green Lane tomorrow Sutton's destiny is still in their own hands, as victory will secure a place in the play-offs and a semi-final next week away to either Staines or Tonbridge. A draw, which will be enough to guarantee Hornchurch their play-off place, could see Sutton qualify as well should Carshalton lose at Hendon, who confirmed their own safety from relegation in midweek against Horsham. Hornchurch have lifted themselves in to 4th place with a run of three consecutive home victories, and their away results against the other challengers have been good, with a win at Tonbridge and draws at Carshalton and Staines, but U's home record is among the best in the league with only Billericay taking maximum points from Gander Green Lane. The sides have met twice before at Sutton, U's winning 3-1 during their run in to second place in the 2003-2004 season, but Hornchurch the 2-1 victors five months later in Blue Square South, while a 2-1 Hornchurch victory was also the outcome of this season's meeting in Essex, U's feeling hard done by to lose a game in which the deciding goal came after goalkeeper Paul Nicholls had been forced off through injury. Steve West is unavailable to face his former club due to suspension, while skipper Chris Collins is unlikely to have recovered from the calf injury that forced him off at Margate, but otherwise manager Paul Doswell reports a fully fit squad and is pleased with the week's build-up. ''We've had two good training sessions this week and the lads are looking forward to the game. We're hoping the supporters will get behind us and act as our 12th man – we've ordered about 1,000 yellow balloons for the afternoon so we're hoping the fans will make it a sea of yellow and help us with our final push for the play-offs.''
