Sutton are back on the road again on Saturday for one of the longest trips of the season, with Barrow providing the opposition at the SO Legal Stadium. We will be wearing our all black kit. Reports from Barrow on Friday suggest that they have missed the worst of the overnight snow, but supporters should check with our website and social media for any updates between now and Saturday.
Barrow started the season well, with their only defeat in their first six games coming at the VBS Community Stadium, when Tope Fadahunsi's first Sutton goal proved to be the only goal of the game, although Barrow were unfortunate to have a late equaliser ruled out, and they have remained in the top half of the table, going in to tomorrow's game three points and one place behind 9th placed Sutton. After a run of six games without a win Barrow have been unbeaten in their last four matches, and their recent games have been tight affairs, the last seven league games seeing them score five goals and concede four. Striker Richie Bennett, who joined Barrow from Sutton in the summer, will again miss playing against his former club having been loaned out to National League Scunthorpe.
Sutton's win against Crawley on Tuesday means U's are unbeaten in the last eight league games and beaten just once in the last thirteen, and will travel north in good heart looking for a first ever win at the SO Legal Stadium, both visits under Matt Gray's management ending in 1-0 defeats. Donovan Wilson is fit to return to the squad after missing the last two games through injury, while one other bit of squad news is that defender Matt Ridley has returned on loan until the end of the season to Chesham United, where he enjoyed a successful spell earlier this season before being injured.
Saturday's referee is Oliver Langford, who has been an EFL referee since 2008 and took charge of Sutton's games at Newport and Harrogate last season.
Advance tickets are still available through the Barrow website on this link. The password if needed is The Us, and once in the site you should click on 'buy tickets' and then the 'away end' section, where you can choose seated or standing accommodation. Prices for seats are £19 for adults, £15 for concessions (age 65+, and age 18-21) and £6 for under 18s. Terrace prices are respectively £16, £13 and £5. Under 7s are admitted free to both areas. It is necessary to register before completing your purchase, but there is no booking fee. Please be aware that some seats towards the rear of the stand have a restricted view.
On the day admission will be available but with a £1 increase to all prices.

Those who are travelling to the game by car should take the M6 to junction 36, then join the A590 for the last 30 miles or so, which may have some slow sections, to Barrow. Continue towards the town centre on Park Road and then Walney Road, still the A590. After passing the fire station take the next left in to Wilkie Road, and the ground is on the right. There is no on site car parking for spectators.
