The link to buy tickets is here, and from 9am on Saturday the away area of the ground, to the right of the map, will become available. It is necessary to set up an account to buy tickets through the system, and you can do that by clicking here.  Prices are: Adults £20; Concession £16(age 65+; Blue Light Card holders; Full time students; registered disabled.

All admission will be through the South turnstile. 
 
Sutton and Harrogate have become familiar opponents in recent years, first in the National League and then in League Two, and it was at the EnviroVent Stadium that U's finished a successful first EFL season, although the immediate feeling in May was of disappointment as despite winning 2-0 U's fell agonisingly short of a play-off place when other results failed to be favourable.
 
Harrogate finished last season in 19th place, and go in to Saturday's game one place below that, a poor run following an impressive opening day win against Swindon, and although three wins in a row lifted them up the table, since the third of those, a 3-2 win against Grimsby on Boxing Day, they have gone four games without a win.
 
Sutton won the game at the VBS in September, Kylian Kouassi's late winner coming after Luke Armstrong's penalty had cancelled out Harry Beautyman's header, and have been in good form since Christmas, losing just one of the five games and sitting five points outside the play off zone. Manager Matt Gray has no new injury worries, U's having been without a game since the defeat at Salford a fortnight ago, and has hinted at some new faces joining ahead of the trip to Yorkshire.
 
Cumbrian referee Anthony Backhouse is in his sixth season as an EFL referee and is taking charge of a Sutton game in the competition for the first time, although he did referee a National League game at Southport in 2016.
 
Anyone not going to the game can listen to an audio commentary through our iFollow system. A match pass costs £2.50, but it is also possible to buy an audio monthly pass for £4.49 or a season pass for £45. Overseas supporters can watch the game for £10, or take advantage of the current half-season ticket offer of £85, which expires on 31 January. Click here to buy any of the above passes - the overseas options will not be visible to UK supporters.
 
The supporters' coach leaves at 7am on Saturday morning.
 
Independent travellers going by car should leave the A1(M) at junction 47 and take the A59 towards Knaresborough. At a roundabout in a couple of miles, ignore the A59 signs and instead take the A658 towards Bradford. At the second roundabout turn right on to the A661. Pass a Sainsburys on the left and the ground is on the right just before the hospital. Post code is HG2 7SA. There is no parking at the ground, but street parking is available around the ground although parking restrictions apply in some cases. You can park for £5 at the Cedar Court Hotel in Park Parade (HG1 5AH) - book your car in, and pay, at reception. Alternatively use town centre car parks and walk to the ground.
 
By rail there are a number of options from King's Cross, changing at either York or Leeds, with a total journey time about three hours.  It's about a 20 minute walk to the ground, or the bus number 7 from the adjacent bus station offers reduced fares on production of a match ticket. If travelling from Leeds you can also use Hornbeam Park station, about a 25 minute walk from the ground.
