Hayes & Yeading FA Cup preview and arrangements

4 November 2021

On Saturday Sutton appear in the FA Cup as a Football League side for the first time, visiting the SKYex Community Stadium to take on Hayes & Yeading United, who are currently second in the Southern League Premier Division South. We will be wearing amber.

That league position doesn't tell the full story, however, as they have three games in hand over leaders Farnborough, who are three points clear, and have failed to win only one of their ten Southern League games, a 1-1 draw away to Metropolitan Police. Hayes remain unbeaten in all competitive football this season, and have knocked two National League South sides, Tonbridge and Dorking Wanderers, out of the FA Cup so far this season, the latter in a penalty shootout in the last round to earn Saturday's game. Their squad this season includes former Sutton strikers Moses Emmanuel, who took his goals tally for the season in to double figures in last Saturday's FA Trophy win on penalties at Heybridge, and Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick, who scored his first goal for the club in the League Cup win over Metropolitan Police the previous Tuesday.

This is Hayes and Yeading's third consecutive appearance in the first round proper, with a defeat on penalties last season against Carlisle and Oxford United winning 2-0 in a live televised game in 2019. We last met in National League South in December 2015 at Maidenhead, which was H&Y's home ground at the time, U's winning 3-1 with two goals from Dan Fitchett and one from Jamie Collins, and avenging a single goal defeat at Sutton five weeks earlier.

While Hayes & Yeading have two former Sutton players in their squad, the Sutton management duo of Matt Gray and Jason Goodliffe both played for Hayes in the days when the clubs were separate entities, both captaining the side. Matt made over 60 appearances in the early 2000s in three seasons punctuated by injury, and Jason over 300 appearances between 1993 and 2001. They will have to select from a squad that again will be missing Richie Bennett, who completes his three match suspension, with Omar Bugiel set to make his 100th Sutton appearance and Isaac Olaofe eligible having been given permission by Millwall to play. Matt will be previewing the game with SUFCtv on Friday.

Referee on Saturday is Sam Allison, who has twice refereed FA Cup ties involving Sutton before, the 6-3 win at Dartford in he first round in 2016-17, and the 4th qualifying round success at Wealdstone two seasons later. He is in his second season as an EFL referee.

Should the game be drawn the replay will be at Sutton on Tuesday 16 November.

The game is segregated, and Sutton supporters should follow the direction signs to enter the ground by the first entrance. Tickets are still available through the Sutton Club Shop between 10am and 12 noon on Friday, and can also be bought on the day at the SKYex stadium from about 1.30pm. The selling point will be a temporary ticket office near the home turnstiles, but there will only be one window open and anyone wanting to buy on the day should arrive in plenty of time to buy a ticket. Admission prices are Adults £15 Seats/£13 Terrace; Over 60s and Students (16-22) £10/£8; Under 16s £5/£4. Those buying on the day should preferably use a contactless card, although cash is acceptable.

The Supporters' Club coach is leaving the VBS at 12.45pm, fare £15 return.

The SKYex stadium is in Beaconsfield Road, and from Sutton you should head to Hampton, turn right on to the A311 towards Twickenham and then in about a mile go left on to the A312 and continue round Heathrow Airport, crossing the A30, A4 and M4, on to the Hayes by-pass until the junction with the A4020 Uxbridge Road. Turn in towards Southall and Ealing, take the first right in to Springfield Road, and Beaconsfield Road is at the end. However there is no general parking at the ground, but parking is available for £5 (cash only) on a first come first served basis at the Nanaksar Thath Isher Darbar Trust in Springfield Road, just before the Goals Centre.

By rail the best station to use is Southall, served by a frequent service from Paddington, taking about quarter of an hour. Note that although Beaconsfield Road is first left after turning right out of the station, it is separated from the part of the road that the ground is on by the Grand Union Canal, with no crossing point, so turn up any of the roads on the right from Beaconsfield Road to reach Southall Broadway and then turn left to follow the main road over the canal before turning left again in to Springfield Road - it's at least a half hour walk, although a number of buses run along the Broadway. If you use Hayes & Harlington station (one stop on from Southall), there are taxis that will take you to the ground.

Due to FA commercial regulations the game will not be live streamed domestically or overseas, and the usual highlights packages will not be available, however SUFCtv will be filming the game and we will have highlights available on our website hopefully some time on Sunday. We will be providing a live audio commentary through the iFollow service for the usual £2.50, and passes can be bought here. Monthly and seasonal passes ARE valid. Note that the commentary is likely to be provided on a phone rather than through the usual broadcast equipment, which may cause a slight reduction in sound quality.

Match Reports

Emirates FA Cup: Hayes & Yeading United 0 Sutton United 1

6 November 2021

Matt Gray was able to celebrate his first FA Cup win as Sutton manager, but not before U's had been given every bit as hard a test as was expected against a Hayes & Yeading side suffering their first competitive defeat of the season.

U's place in the second round for the first time since 2016 was secured by one of the few moments of quality in a scrappy and untidy game that wasn't helped by a gusty wind, but in the FA Cup the result is all that matters and U's deserve credit for overcoming what could have been a large banana skin against an in-form and confident side who had scored in every game so far this season.

In an untidy first half hour neither side was able to take any control, the early enthusiasm shown by Hayes on and off the pitch dampened by an efficient defensive performance from U's, who were however unable to stamp any more authority on the game in the opposition half. Hayes goalkeeper Tyla Dickinson had to be watchful when a Joe Kizzi header from a free kick threatened to dip under his crossbar, and Isaac Olaofe put a header too high as U's created half chances, but at the other end Dean Bouzanis was untroubled, apart from when he needed brief attention from the physios, and watched one shot from Amos Nasha drift harmlessly wide.

The best moment of the half came eight minutes before the interval when Omar Bugiel, making his 100th appearance for Sutton, guided David Ajiboye's cross in to the path of Olaofe, who made space and fired in a rising shot that was superbly tipped over by Dickinson, while former Sutton striker Moses Emmanuel should have done better at the other end when he escaped the Sutton defence to meet a free kick with a header which he glanced well wide.

The home goalkeeper had to be alert twice early in the second half, grabbing the ball in his six yard box as Sutton looked to capitalise on knock downs at free kicks, but just as it seemed U's might be gaining the upper hand Hayes enjoyed their best spell as Emmanuel scuffed a shot wide after Hassan Jalloh had escaped rather too easily on the left, and the lively Tyler Goodrham produced somce neat skill before sending in a dipping shot that Bouzanis had to push away to his left. Moments later Francis Amartey created space for a shot on the left that was diverted in to the path of Emmanuel, and Bouzanis again came to U's rescue as he dived at the striker's feet to save.

David Ajiboye was unlucky with a dipping 25 yard shot that went just over, and soon afterwards U's made their first change, bringing on Donovan Wilson for Olaofe, and it paid almost immediate dividends as within three minutes of his arrival Wilson beat two defenders on the edge of the penalty area before laying a pass out to Randall, who curled his first time shot beyond Dickinson in to the far corner of the net.

There were some predictably difficult moments for U's, playing in to the wind, in the last twenty minutes as Hayes fought to preserve their unbeaten record, none more so than when another former Sutton striker, Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick, headed just wide within moments of coming on after a misunderstanding between Bouzanis and Ben Wyatt had seen the defender loop a header across his own goal, but despite losing Bugiel and Randall to injury in the closing stages U's were able to close out a valuable, and extremely hard-earned, victory and look forward to Monday's second round draw.

Sutton: D Bouzanis, J Kizzi, B Wyatt, C Rowe, B Goodliffe, A Smith, D Ajiboye, I Olaofe(sub D Wilson 68), O Bugiel (sub T Sho-Silva 81), R Milsom, W Randall(sub E Boldewijn 90+4). Subs n/u B House, K Davis, C Dundas, R Korboa. Booked: Milsom, Goodliffe.
