After making the most of two home League Two games in the past week, Sutton return to the road this weekend, heading to Devon for a first ever meeting with Exeter City. U's will be wearing all green for the game.
The game matches two sides in good form, U's having won the last three league and cup matches and Exeter unbeaten since a 3-0 defeat at Leyton Orient on the second Saturday of the season, their only reverse of the season. Four of their seven games have been drawn, but their second win of the season last weekend was a convincing 4-0 success at Scunthorpe. Two of their goals came from captain Matt Jay, whose 18 league goals last season saw him named in the League Two team of the year, as well as winning the Player of the Year award at St James Park. Another regular goalscorer recently moved to the club, with Padraig Amond signed on a season long loan from Newport County.
After losing to Northampton in the play-off final in 2020, Exeter finished 9th last season as they had two seasons earlier in their first season under the guidance of manager Matt Taylor, who had previously played over 150 games for The Grecians and took over from the long serving Paul Tisdale.
Sutton manager Matt Gray reports no new injury concerns after Tuesday's win at home to Hartlepool, U's second in three days, with Kenny Davis and Ricky Korboa also back in training after recent illness.
