Stevenage v Sutton preview

3 October 2022

Sutton will hope to bounce back from what was generally agreed to be U's poorest performance of the season at Gillingham on Saturday, visiting Stevenage in a game rearranged from the middle of September, when games were postponed as a mark of respect following the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II. We will be playing in green.

Last season U's visited the Lamex as Paul Tisdale seemed to be inspiring a climb away from the relegation zone, and it took Richie Bennett's stoppage time equaliser to earn a 3-3 draw in a game in which U's twice trailed by two goals. That improvement was not sustained, and it wasn't until Steve Evans took over in March that Stevenage found the form to pull themselves to safety, finishing nine points clear of the drop.

That form has been sustained this season and Stevenage are in third place going in to Tuesday's game, and with a 100% home record having won all five of their home games against Carlisle, Harrogate, Newport, Rochdale and Stockport. Victory on Tuesday would put them level on points with current leaders Leyton Orient, although Northampton, who are in action at Walsall on Tuesday, could take over at the top with a victory.

During the summer Alex Revell, who had started last season as manager and who was in charge when U's picked up a first EFL win last September, was appointed first team coach and summer signings on the pitch included centre back Carl Piergianni, who has played, and scored, against U's for both Salford and Oldham.

Sutton have no fresh injury worries after the defeat at Gillingham, but will again be without Donovan Wilson, who remains suspended after his red card against Salford.

Referee on Tuesday is Ollie Yates, who has been on the EFL list since 2016 and was in the middle for Sutton's home game against Newport on Easter Monday.
