Sutton v Gillingham preview and streaming details

15 August 2023

After the longest trip of the season on Saturday it's back to the VBS on Tuesday night as Sutton host Gillingham in Sky Bet League Two.

Gillingham are one of three sides to have won both their games this season, with Robbie McKenzie's goal enough to beat Stockport at Edgeley Park before Ashley Nadesan, a summer signing from Crawley, scored the only goal of the game against Accrington on Saturday. Between those two league wins, Gillingham achieved one of the stand-out results in the first round of the Carabao Cup, beating Southampton 3-1 at The Priestfield to earn an away tie at Premier League Luton.

That start will not have been a surprise to many, with Gillingham widely expected to be among the challengers for promotion after a strong end to last season was followed by some notable signings during the close-season, former Welsh international Jonny Williams, from Swindon, and former Leyton Orient defender Shadrach Ogie among the new arrivals who were added to at the end of last week by striker Macauley Bonne, who left Charlton earlier in the summer. 

One player who left the Kent club during the summer was Scott Kashket, who U's will hope has recovered from the injury which kept him out of Saturday's game at Barrow, especially with Harry Smith beginning a three match suspension following his red card, and the club's subsequent unsuccessful appeal, on Saturday.

Referee Scott Tallis is in his first season as an EFL referee and making his first visit to Sutton, although he did take charge of games at Notts County and Boreham Wood in U's National League championship season in 2020-21.

Match report for Sutton United 0 Gillingham 1

15 August 2023

Sutton United 0 Gillingham 1 (Nadesan 10)

Sutton suffered a second consecutive defeat as Gillingham claimed a third win out of three to take over at the top of the embryonic Sky Bet League Two table. A tight game was decided in the 10th minute when Gillingham capitalised on a defensive error, and although Sutton had stages of putting the visitors' defence under pressure, the equaliser wouldn't come as Gillingham finished the game still to concede a league goal this season.

Former Gillingham striker Scott Kashket was fit to return up front, partnering Lee Angol as Harry Smith began his three game ban after being sent off at Barrow, but in the early stages U's found it difficult to make any impression on a solid Gillingham defence as the visitors started the better, and the decisive goal soon came. Omar Sowunmi lost possession to Tom Nichols, who raced clear and crossed low for his former Crawley team mate Ashley Nadesan, whose crisp first time finish gave Jack Rose no chance.

Sowunmi came close to atoning for his error when Harry Beautyman's cross dropped for him six yards out, but his looping volley was cleared off the line by Scott Malone, and Sutton came close again when both Angol and Kashket had efforts blocked in a goalmouth scramble before goalkeeper Jake Turner dropped on the ball. There was still threat at the other end, though, and after George Lapslie had whipped a cross shot just wide of the far post U's nearly gave away a second as Nadesan dispossessed Ben Goodliffe and sent Nichols away, but when he passed inside to Dom Jeffries Sowunmi was well placed to divert the resulting shot away for a corner.

U's kept pressing in the second half, and would not have been flattered by an equaliser, but Kashket remained out of luck against his former club as he netted from Angol's knock down following a long Joe Kizzi throw only to be flagged offside, and then after Sutton's best move of the game had seen Omari Patrick finish a strong run with a pass to the overlapping Rob Milsom, Kashket's volley from the resulting cross was too close to Turner, who saved relatively comfortably.

There were several more penalty area skirmishes, and Turner was much the busier goalkeeper as Rose had little to do in the second half, but Gillingham's defence remained resolute and were able to celebrate a third consecutive 1-0 success in the league.
