A closer look: Sutton United v Walsall

6 October 2023

The Saddlers are back on the road tomorrow with a trip to Sutton United in Sky Bet League Two.

Mat Sadler’s side will be aiming to secure back-to-back away victories at Gander Green Lane when they come up against Matt Gray’s team.

Here is more information and a closer look at tomorrow’s contest.



Tickets for tomorrow’s match are no longer on sale from the Poundland Bescot Stadium and our e-ticketing site.

Saddlers fans will be able to purchase tickets at Sutton from the away turnstiles but please be aware, there will be a £2 price increase on the day.



We’ve been informed that there are no trains on Saturday through West Sutton Station (the station next to the ground). Supporters travelling by train are advised to go from London Euston to Victoria and catch a Southern train to Sutton. From there, the number 80 or 413 bus passes Gander Green Lane or alternatively, the stadium is roughly a 20-minute walk.  

Those bus routes also connect with the Underground at Morden (Northern Line).



Tomorrow’s match will not be available to stream live on iFollow in the UK but is available to international supporters.

Audio commentary is available for just £2.50.

Mat Sadler: “We have to go there under no illusions whatsoever that it will be a tough game and we have to be right on top of ourselves but as it always is, it’s about focusing on us, what we can do, how we want to hurt the opposition and that’s how we’ll approach the game.”

Matt Gray: “It’s about sticking together, working really hard to try and get that win and build on that win. Once we get going, hopefully we start a little run going and soon climb that table. It’s an important few days for us to get right again for a big game against Walsall at the weekend.”



Taylor Allen will serve the final match of his three-match suspension.

Priestley Farquharson and Brandon Comley are not expected to return from their injuries tomorrow but both are progressing well. David Okagbue is also sidelined.

As for Sutton, Craig Eastmond was forced off against Salford City in midweek with a suspected hamstring injury but it’s unclear what the extent of that injury is.

Walsall and Sutton United have met just four times with the first coming back in October 2021.

Tyrese Shade scores a free-kick in Walsall's 1-0 win at Sutton in 2021.

Sutton have just four points from their opening 11 games this season, all of which have come at Gander Green Lane.

They have won just one of their last 22 league games and that came on the opening day of this season against Notts County.

The Saddlers head into the contest with improved form on the road following two victories from the last three away from home.
