Notts County v Sutton preview and travel information

26 February 2024

It's Sutton's last chance of a Sky Bet League Two double on Tuesday when U's visit Meadow Lane to take on a Notts County side who were on the end of a 5-1 thumping on the first day of the season at the VBS. Sutton will be wearing amber.

That August afternoon as Notts County made their return to the Football League was probably the highspot of a season that has gone in a downward direction since for Sutton, with U's having won only three league games subsequently and going in to Tuesday's game on an eleven game winless run, the longest for the club this season.

Notts County's recent form isn't that much better, with one win in their last eight games, six of which have been under the guidance of Stuart Maynard, who left Wealdstone to take over at Meadow Lane in January after Luke Williams, who had brought Notts County back in to the EFL from the National League last season, had left to join Championship side Swansea City. They did recover from that opening day defeat and by the end of October had climbed to second in the table, but that poor run since the turn of the year as them currently in 13th place, albeit only four points outside the play-off zone. Their squad this season has included Will Randall, who moved from Sutton in the summer, although he has been restricted to five league appearances so far.

Sutton's last win was on Boxing Day at Wimbledon, and U's go in to the game three points adrift at the bottom of the table and seven points below Grimsby, who have no game on Tuesday while Forest Green host Wrexham and Colchester visit Salford.

The referee on Tuesday is Ollie Yates, who has been on the EFL list since 2016 and was last in charge of a Sutton game at Stevenage last season.

Sutton supporters will be accommodated in the Jimmy Sirrel Stand and tickets will be available on the night from the away ticket next to the away turnstiles in County Road. Prices are £24 for adults; £18 for ages 65 and over and 18-21; £10 for ages 16 and 17; £8 for ages 12-15 and £1 for under 12s, who must be accompanied by an over 18 spectator.

For supporters not travelling the game will be live streamed in the UK and overseas, and passes for £10 can be bought here.

The Supporters' Club coach leaves at 2pm.

If travelling by car take the M1 to junction 24 and leave to follow the A453 towards Nottingham. Continue for about eight miles through Clifton (park and ride available as shown below) then on approaching the junction with the A52 bear left to follow signs to Wilford via the roundabout under the A52 in to Wilford Lane. Continue along Wilford Lane to the junction with the A60, then bear left to follow the A60 past Trent Bridge cricket ground and the City Ground, and over the bridge. The ground is on the right - there is no right turn in to Meadow Lane but you can turn right at the next junction in to Cattle Market Road and follow the road round behind the ground in to County Road, which is where the away accommodation is There is no public parking at the ground, but parking is available at the Cattle Market close to County Road. There is also a large multi storey car park in Queens Road, on the left on the A60 just past the turning to Cattle Market Road, and you may find free street parking in West Bridgford (right rather than left when you come to the A60), which is about a 15 minute walk from the ground. The club also strongly recommends the park and ride at Clifton South tram stop, just off the A453. Parking is free but you need to buy a ticket before boarding - trams run to Nottingham station which is ten minutes' walk from the ground. On the return journey watch out for a motorway closure on the M1 around Leicester (junctions 22-21A).
 
By rail trains leave St Pancras for Nottingham at 05 and 35 minutes past the hour, taking between an hour and a half and two hours. Turn left out of the station and immediately left again in to Queens Road, and at the end you'll see the ground opposite you to the right. The last direct train back is at 21.40, but there is a train at 21.58 which will get you to St Pancras at 00.23 with a change at East Midlands Parkway.
