Swindon v Sutton preview and streaming details

8 September 2023

After a week without a game, Sutton head west to Swindon on Saturday for a Sky Bet League Two game that, as it is an international weekend this weekend, can be watched by Sutton supporters on a live stream through our iFollow service. We will be wearing our all white kit.

Sutton face a tough task against a Swindon side who are unbeaten after their first five games, having seen their game at Colchester on the opening day postponed, and are the joint leading scorers with Wrexham with whom they shared a 5-5 draw last month. A week later they put six past Crawley, managed by former Swindon boss Scott Lindsey, with striker Jake Brown, on loan from Bradford City, scoring four to put him alongside Newport's Will Evans at the top of the League Two scoring charts. That may have made last week's goalless draw at bottom of the table Doncaster, who played the second half with ten men, slightly disappointing. As last season, when he scored at Sutton before late goals from Lee Angol and Ali Smith forced U's only win over the Wiltshire side, Sutton will also need to keep an eye on experienced striker Charlie Austin, while another of manager Michael Flynn's summer signings who U's will be familiar with is midfielder Dan Kemp, outstanding for Hartlepool when the sides met in February.

Sutton need to end a run of five successive defeats, and in doing so would pick up points at the County Ground for the first time, having lost last season 3-2 to Jacob Wakeling's stoppage time header, and 2-1 the previous season. Manager Matt Gray has no new injuries to report, with Sam Hart and captain Craig Eastmond close to a return after their injury lay offs.

For the third Saturday in a row the referee will be an official in his first season on the EFL List, with Ben Atkinson taking charge of a Sutton match for the first time. He refereed last season's National League South play-off final.

The game can be watched live on our iFollow system, with a match pass costing £10 available here. The proceeds from all passes sold through our website come to the club.

Tickets for the game will be on sale at the Away End ticket point just past Bar 71, which is also where any uncollected pre-ordered tickets can be collected. Prices are Adults £27; Over 65/students £22; Age 18-20 £15; Age 11-17 £11; Under 11 £3. Wheelchair/ambulant disabled supporters pay the relevant price with a carer admitted free. Our accommodation is in the Arkells Stand.

The supporters' coach leaves at 9.30am.

For independent drivers car parking is available at St Joseph's School (SN3 3LR), a short five minute walk to the ground, price £5. Leave the M4 at junction 15 and take the A419 north.  At the first roundabout take the first exit on to Marlborough Way, the A4259. At the next roundabout take the second exit to carry on in to Queens Drive. Continue until the next roundabout, where you turn right in to Drakes Way then bear left in to Ocotal Way for the car park.
 
For those travelling by train it only takes about an hour from Paddington to Swindon, with a frequent service there and back. Swindon station is about a 10 minute walk from the ground so even catching the 13.30 off Paddington should get you there in time for kick off. You can see the ground on your left as you approach the station. To get there, from the front of the station turn left onto Station Road. Facing the White House pub, head right onto Corporation Street. At the traffic lights turn left onto Manchester Road. At the end of Manchester Road turn right onto County Road. The entrance to the stadium is the second left.
