Default Sutton Utd (A) - T's & P's

PP should have spent all day yesterday analysing Saturday's fiasco before coming up with a good team selection and gameplan to out-fox the 'Mighty U's' at Gander Lane. But has he? Or will it be more of the same and hope for a different outcome against lowly opposition?

Depending on which stats you worship, this could be anything. Sutton's home is, as you would expect, not very good (W3 D6 L7 +21 -23 GD -2, with only 1 clean sheet and failed to score 5 times). And their last 6 games are nothing to fear (W0 D4 L2). But let's not kid ourselves; this will be a tough game because they are very big bruisers unafraid to resort to the dark arts, while we are... yes, I don't know what we are at the moment: Toothless? Slow? One-dimensional? Ineffective? Over-confident? Under-confident? We are certainly in a rut and this may not be the ideal game to get out of it, but the realities are we MUST WIN THIS GAME. Otherwise, not only will we become a laughing stock in EFL2 but, more importantly, players and fans will start believing we are LOSERS! And losers do not win promotion.

Several players are either still injured or not fully match fit, so can PP afford to drop Mullin, Lee and Tozer to the bench? An even bigger question is whether he would if he could. I think Tozer will remain cemented in the CBs, but there is scope to rest both Mullin and Lee until the last few minutes..joke! PP might bring on some subs sooner if all is not well.

I hope we manage a win tomorrow. It doesn't need to be anything special. It just needs to be enough to bring back 3 points. It's up to PP to lay the grounds for a win, but once on the pitch it's up to those starting-XI to earn a win. Some of the players are already doing their bit ie Okonkwo, McClean, Evans, Cannon and Fletcher. Others are close enough, but the aforementioned 3 aren't!

Sutton Utd 0 WXM 2

Marriott and Cannon

On paper it's the place to go this season to stop your losing streak but rarely is it that easy.

I think we'll have enough for a win but it'll be edgy until we score. They may be well up for this and look for the upset.

Predicting Sutton 1-2 Wrexham personally with both goals from Fletcher.

If Fletcher is fit to play so quickly I will be far more confident.

Whilst so many worship stats and recent history, here is an interesting one to ponder.

Chesterfield have amassed 81 points after 32 games.

Last season, after 32 games, we only had 78.

Another record might slip through our fingers.

However, the past is gone; it's the here and now which is more important if we are to gain the future we want.

Learn from the past, but live in the present!

Got a bad feeling about this one - they really troubled us in the home fixture and have the physical power up front to bully us. But its time to reverse the current rot of form

Default Re: Sutton Utd (A) - T's & P's

I’d go

Okonkwo

Barnett
Hayden
O’Connell
Mendy

Evans
Jones
Cannon

Bolton
Marriot
Fletcher/Palmer

Subs

Howard
McClean
Tozer
Cleworth
Lee
Mullin
Fletcher/Palmer

Parky more likely goes

Okonkwo

Barnett
Hayden
Tozer
O’Connell
McClean

Evans
Cannon
Lee

Mullin
Dalby

Subs

Howard
Cleworth
Mendy
Jones
Bolton
Marriot
Fletcher

Either way I think it’s gonna be a nervy, scrappy and hard fought match that I hope we can stand up to and scrape a win somehow, 1-2 Wrexham (Marriot to get off the mark, if he gets more than 10 minutes, Cannon the other)

Understand your doubt, but it's a sad reflection when we think a draw at second from bottom Sutton is an improvement.

I do agree this will be a physical clash. They will earn their bonus if they do win it.

I would try this team:

------------------------Okonkwo

--------George----------EOC--------Cleworth


Barnett-----Cannon-----J Jones-----McClean-----Mendy


----------------Marriott-------Fletcher

If Fletcher can't do the quick turnaround, I would stick Hayden up top ahead of Dalby.

Id be looking at putting Hayden and Mullin on the bench for this.

Hayden i think against a physical side like this will struggle and Mullin just looks burned out. Him coming on at 65 minutes might be a better option.

Got a bad feeling though we might loose this one.
