Sutton v Braintree preview and reduced admission offer

12 September 2016

After some long away trips Sutton return to mor familiar surroundings at Gander Green Lane tonight with a game against Braintree, previous rivals at both National League South and Ryman League level. After a superb campaign last season which saw Braintree feature in the end of season play-offs, losing to ultimately promoted Grimsby, they have struggled more this season after the departure of manager Danny Cowley and several players to Lincoln City, who took over at the top of the league on Saturday, while Braintree come to Sutton tonight in 21st place, with just one win, at home to Aldershot, from their nine games. Away from home they have picked up points in goalless draws at North Ferriby and Guiseley, and been beaten 2-1 at Maidstone and Barrow.

Their squad is likely to include Michael Cheek, who impressed on several occasions for Chelmsford in the past against Sutton, and former Southampton player Lee Barnard, but not ex-Hemel Hempstead goalkeeper Jamie Butler, who left the club last week shortly after the arrival of Sam Beasant.

Their squad is likely to include Michael Cheek, who impressed on several occasions for Chelmsford in the past against Sutton, and former Southampton player Lee Barnard, but not ex-Hemel Hempstead goalkeeper Jamie Butler, who left the club last week shortly after the arrival of Sam Beasant. Simon Downer will still be absent for Sutton as he completes a three match suspension but otherwise Paul Doswell should have a full squad to choose from.

After the offer was successfully run at the Dagenham game we are again offering reduced admission of £10 for adults and £6 for concessions for anyone holding a current season ticket for a Premier League or Football League club. This offer will also be in force for Saturday's game against Tranmere. Tonight's game is sponsored by Club Director David Mathers and his family, and the ball donors are Alex Johnston and Robert Oakes, and to all of them we are very grateful.
