Mansfield v Sutton preview

22 January 2024

After a promising start to Steve Morison's tenure as Head Coach against Barrow last week, and the pitch at the One Call Stadium being frozen on Saturday, Sutton make the trip to Mansfield on Tuesday to take on another of the teams that has featured in the Sky Bet League Two promotion picture for much of the season. We will be wearing white.

Our game on Saturday was the second in a week to be called off at Mansfield because of frost, but with leaders Stockport's game also postponed on Saturday, Wrexham beaten at Newport and Barrow suffering a first home defeat of the season against Crewe, Mansfield remain third, four points behind Stockport and now above Crewe on goal difference.

Mansfield were the last side in the EFL to lose their unbeaten record this season, finally losing at Swindon at the end of November, since when Crewe inflicted their only home defeat just over a fortnight ago, although that is still their only defeat in their last eight league games, a sequence that included a 2-0 win at the VBS just before Christmas. While The Stags have conceded fewer goals at home than any other side in the division, they have won only half of their twelve home games. They were hit last week with the news that striker Rhys Oates, a player that has often done well in games against Sutton in his career, will be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, but they may have John-Joe O'Toole back in the squad on Tuesday after injury.

Sutton made three additions to the squad last week for the visit to a ground on which U's have not lost, last season's goalless draw following one of the best results of the previous season when Omar Bugiel, David Ajiboye and Richie Bennett scored in a 3-2 win. U's will still be without striker Harry Smith as he continues to serve a suspension following his red card at Gillingham - he will next be available for the Doncaster game in a fortnight's time. Other than that, and the long term injuries to Scott Kashket and Jon Barden, U's should have a fully fit squad to choose from.

Tuesday's referee is Ed Duckworth, in his first season as an EFL referee and taking charge of his second Sutton game this season having overseen the 4-0 win against Walsall in October.

Tickets can still be bought at advance prices on Monday, on line only by clicking here with the tickets delivered electronically as they would be for a home game. Those prices are Adults £21; Seniors (age 65 and over) £19; Young Adult (age 18-21) £17; Junior (age 14-17) £14; Child (age 7-13) £10. Under 7s are admitted free. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a paying adult or senior. A family ticket (one adult plus one junior or child) is available for £24, with the discount applied when you add the tickets to your cart. Ambulant and wheelchair disabled pay the relevant price. Ambulant disabled must be in possession of one of the following to obtain a free carer ticket: Proof of entitlement to higher rate of DLA or PIP; copy of documents certifying Registered Blind status.

Admission will be available on Tuesday at Mansfield at the away end ticket booth, payment by card only. On the day prices rise by £2, except for junior and child prices, which rise by £1, and Under 7s and family tickets which remain unchanged.

As the game is now a midweek game, it will be live streamed in the UK and overseas, with supporters able to watch the game wherever they are for £10, but a reminder that until the end of this month a half season ticket is available for overseas supporters for just £85 which will cover every league game between now and the end of the season. This offer is not available in the UK. Click here to buy the relevant pass.

If travelling by car leave the M1 at junction 28, then take the A38 towards Mansfield. After around six miles turn right into Belvedere Street (at crossroads), then after a quarter of a mile, turn right into Quarry Lane for One Call Stadium. Matchday car parking is not available, but there are nearby pay and display car parks at  Grove Street, Victoria Street, Garden Road and Church Lane, all with easy access to the ground. Please note that parking is NOT permitted in the Portland Retail site. On the return journey be prepared for M1 closures around Leicester and again between MIlton Keynes and Luton, while the A1 is scheduled to be closed around Peterborough and again at Sandy. The M42 and M40 appear unaffected. Further details here, changing the date to 23 January.

If using the train, you will need to arrange transport back, or stay in the area overnight, with there being no service that gets you back to London on Tuesday night. If you want to travel to the game by train, services leave St Pancras at 05 and 35 minutes past the hour up to 16.05, taking just under two and a half hours. On arrival at Mansfield you can see the ground from the station. Leave the station via the footbridge, adjacent to Platform 2. Walk past Burger King, through the retail park, and you will arrive at the North Stand (away end). It should take no longer than five minutes on foot.

Match report for Mansfield Town 1 Sutton United 1

23 January 2024

Mansfield Town 1(Maris 35) Sutton United 1 (Angol 8)

Sutton continued the battle to climb away from the League Two relegation zone with an excellent point against promotion chasing Mansfield. In a game increasingly spoilt by the strong wind and partly played in swirling rain, U's took an early lead but were pegged back by an equaliser ten minutes before half time having survived a spell of Mansfield pressure. The home side had a lot of the ball again in the second half, but created few clear chances, although substitute Will Swan did miss a golden chance close to the end to deny Sutton the point the performance deserved.

U's lined up in an unfamilar 5-3-2 formation, with Ryan Jackson and Nino Adom-Malaki as wing backs and Olly Sanderson making his debut alongside Lee Angol, and Sanderson almost had an immediate impact when he got across his marker to meet Jackson's low cross but turned his shot just wide. U's weren't to be denied an early lead, though, and it came when Lewis Brunt's misplaced pass after he had intercepted a long Bouzanis clearance presented the ball to Angol on the edge of the penalty area, and the striker placed his shot past Christy Pym in to the corner of the net.

U's defended the lead well as Mansfield enjoyed the majority of the possession, Ben Goodliffe throwing himself in the way of a Louis Reed shot, although there may have been a let off when Jackson grabbed Stephen Quinn's arm in the penalty area as the Mansfield player was about to shoot, Quinn's furious reaction to not being awarded a penalty earning him the third yellow card in an eight minute spell. The first had gone to Brunt for a lunging tackle on Adom-Malaki, and his unhappy evening was ended before the half hour mark as he was replaced by Stephen McLaughlin. It proved a good move from Nigel Clough, as within eight minutes McLaughlin had delivered a low cross from the left that was neatly turned in at the near post by George Maris.

Omar Sowunmi failed to appear for the second half after feeling unwell, with Omari Patrick brought on in a changed formation, and again although Mansfield had more of the ball U's defended well and chances were few and far between. Lucas Akins headed over from close range after a left wing free kick had been flicked on, although the pace of the ball was such that Akins knew little about it, but apart from that U's most anxious moment came when a clearance rebounded off Christian N'Guessan and looped just wide of his own goal.

Sutton had some promising moments on the counter attack, Josh Coley particularly prominent after coming on as a substitute but unable to find the final pass, but Pym was as untested as Bouzanis as the gale began to make playing constructive football difficult and took two balls out of the ground. Mansfield did have one glorious chance, though, when Swan met Jordan Bowery's cross at the near post but put his header wide, and despite ninbe minutes of stoppage time Sutton were able to preserve a well earned point to the delight of the 40 supporters who had followed U's to the One Call Stadium on a miserable day for travelling.
