Northampton v Sutton preview and streaming details

25 October 2022

Sutton begin a week on the road on Tuesday with a visit to Northampton Town, currently third in Sky Bet League Two. U's will wear amber for the encounter.

Last season's visit to Sixfields in early October provided U's with a first EFL away win, Joe Kizzi and Donovan Wilson scoring either side of half time for a 2-0 success, while the game in January at the VBS ended goalless with Craig Eastmond sent off, a decision that was subsequently rescinded.

Having lost in the play-offs last season to Mansfield, Northampton were among the pre-season favourites to mount a promotion challenge, and have done little so far this season to suggest anything to the contrary, although Saturday's fine success which ended Stevenage's 100% home record did come after a run of three games without a win. At home they have won five of their seven games, being beaten by Doncaster and Salford but picking up maximum points against Barrow, Colchester, Hartlepool, Rochdale and Stockport.

Northampton boast the division's leading scorer in Sam Hoskins, but he is an injury doubt for Tuesday and fellow striker Danny Hylton was sent off at the Lamex Stadium.

Sutton will assess skipper Craig Eastmond before the game after his facial injury on Saturday while striker Omar Bugiel is set to follow Rob Milsom to the 150 appearance mark.

Referee Ross Joyce is in his eighth season as an EFL official and has taken charge of one Sutton game before, the 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe early last season.

Anyone who has not yet bought a ticket but would like to go to the game can buy tickets on the night from the ticket cabin. On the day prices are adults £24, concessions (over 65) £20, Under 18 £12, Under 7 free. Tickets for disabled supporters are at the above rates, with a carer admitted free if required (proof of requirement may be requested on entry). Payment is by card only.

The Supporters' coach leaves the VBS at 3.00pm.

For independent travellers, The Sixfields Stadium is easily accessed from the M1, leaving at junction 15A and following the A5123 and A5076 to the junction with the A4500. Parking is available on site in the north car park, price £4. Be aware that on the return journey the M1 may be closed between Northampton and Newport Pagnall for overnight roadworks.

Northampton station, which is about two miles from the ground, is served by a reasonably frequent service from Euston, taking about an hour on the fastest services, and you can get a taxi to the ground or bus number 15. Return trains are less frequent, at 22.07 and 22.57, the latter returning to Euston at half past midnight.
