A week after a 3-0 victory at Gander Green Lane, Sutton go to Colston Avenue on Saturday for the second leg of the Christmas/New Year local derby double. Both U’s and Carshalton fell victim to Tuesday’s heavy rain, but the danger to tomorrow’s game is more likely to be frost, and should there be any doubts about the game going ahead we will have news on this website. Sutton will have Billy Hawes available after he missed the Boxing Day game through suspension, while Billy Dunn has been recalled from his loan at Hendon and could feature in the squad, having scored in the corresponding fixture last season when U’s won 2-0. Carshalton will be without leading scorer Richard Jolly, who is away.
The reserves' scheduled game at home to Basingstoke has been postponed..
