Match Previews

Woking v Sutton preview and ticket information

24 July 2023

Sutton's pre-season continues on Tuesday night with a visit to National League Woking, kick off 7.45pm. Sutton will be wearing amber for the game.

The game will be a good test for U's against a Woking side who finished fourth in the National League last season before losing at home to Bromley in the play-off eliminator. Their side on Tuesday is likely to include Rhys Browne, who featured for U's in the National League championship season, and Ricky Korboa, who was a Sutton player a season later as we made our EFL debut.

It will be U's fifth of six pre-season games which have so far seen two victories, one draw and one defeat, while Woking have played three games so far, recording their first win at Welling on Saturday after draws away to Stratford Town and at home to AFC Wimbledon. 

The sides met at Sutton a year ago, when Padraig Amond's goal inflicted U's only defeat of last season's pre-season schedule, but U's have won on each of the last two visits to the Laithwaite Community Stadium in Kingfield (below)


Admission prices for standing and seating are £12 for age 17 and over and £6 for age 16 and under. Tickets can be bought on line here. Ground tickets will also be available at the ground on the night, but seats can only be purchased on line in advance, with tickets going off line about three hours before kick off on Tuesday.

Woking's ground is in the Kingfield area of Woking, alongside the A247 south of the town centre. It is most easily reached by taking the first exit off the A3 after the M25 junction and following the B2215 to Ripley before turning on to the A247, which will take you through Send and Old Woking in to Kingfield, with the ground on the left opposite Woking Park. As with Farnborough on Saturday, allow extra time to get through the roadworks at the A3/M25 junction. There is no on site parking, but parking is available in Woking Park or at the Heathside Crescent car park in the town centre, about a twenty minute walk from the ground. Both are pay car parks run by Woking Council. Limited street parking is available, but supporters are asked to park considerately.

The ground is about a twenty minute walk from Woking station. From Sutton you can travel via Clapham Junction at 12 or 42 minutes past the hour, or via Wimbledon, with an additional change at Surbiton, at 19 or 49 minutes past the hour. Total journey time is about an hour. Return from Woking at 22.19 via Clapham Junction or 22.33 via Wimbledon.

Woking 2 (Kellermann 11, Amond 89) Sutton United 0

Sutton's pre-season continued with a defeat at the Laithwaite Community Stadium against a Woking side who had much the better of things from start to finish and could have won by a wider margin, although they only made the game safe in the closing stages when Padraig Amond scored against Sutton for the second pre-season running.

U's lined up with Scott Kashket in attack alongside Harry Smith, the former Wycombe, Crewe and Gillingham striker having completed his signing earlier in the day, while with Ben Goodliffe and Omar Sowunmi still injured Craig Eastmond and Joe Kizzi formed the central defensive pairing, with Ollie Khinda starting at right back. There was good news, though, as Sam Hart, who had limped off with a knee injury at Farnborough, was able to take his place at left back.

Jack Rose had already been well placed to save one acrobatic volley from Reece Grego-Cox when he was beaten in the 11th minute, powerless to prevent Jim Kellermann's shot from just inside the area finding the net after taking a deflection which wrong-footed the U's keeper. 

Sutton did little to trouble the Woking defence in the first half, one low cross from Josh Coley cleared after Kashket had allowed it to run, and the home side should have led by more at the break as Matt Robinson headed wide at the far post from Grego-Cox's cross when it seemed easier to score, and Rose brilliantly tipped over a Grego-Cox header from one of three corners with which Woking finished the half.

The second half followed a similar pattern although Woking created fewer chances, Grego-Cox's ahot on the turn easily saved by Rose. Sutton occasionally looked as though they could threaten, but too often the move broke down before it could cause home keeper Will Jaaskelainen any problems, with the goalkeeper not having a shot to save in the game, and U's evening was summed up by Rob Milsom's free kick from a promising attacking position which sailed harmlessly over everyone and out for a goal kick. 

Woking did eventually add a second with just over a minute to go when Amond applied the slightest touch to a cross from the left, the ball drifting inside the far post beyond Rose.

Sutton: J Rose, J Kizzi, S Hart, O Khinda (sub R Milsom H-T) C Eastmond(sub J Taylor 78), C Clay, J Coley  (sub Triallist F 78), C N'Guessan, H Smith (sub H Beautyman 68), S Kashket(sub L Angol H-T), T Fadahunsi(sub H Kasimu 78)
