Team News:

During the pre-match press conference, John Sheridan confirmed that there are no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday.

Opposition

Manager: Matt Gray

Gray’s first involvement at Sutton was as a head coach when he joined the club in December last year and was eventually made first team manager in the summer.

Before taking up his role at Sutton, he had various coaching jobs at the likes of Eastleigh, Aldershot Town and Crawley Town.

During his playing career, he started at Tottenham Hotspur and went on to have spells at Cardiff City, Hayes and Havant & Waterlooville.

However, his playing career came to an end due to injury.

Sutton United are currently in seventeenth place in the National League.

One to Watch: Harry Beautyman

The 27-year-old first joined Sutton in 2011 for two years. He was back at the club in January 2018 after stints with Welling United, Peterborough United, Northampton Town and Stevenage.

He was called up to the England C squad during his first spell at Gander Green Lane back in 2013.

The midfielder is the U’s top scorer this season with five goals so the Spireites will have to be wary of Beautyman on Saturday.

Head to Head:

The match will be the third time the two sides have played each other with the Spireites drawing one and winning the last encounter.

Last time out the Spireites ran out 3-0 winners at the Proact thanks to a Tom Denton double and a Scott Boden strike.

From the dugout:

John Sheridan: “They’re a good team, they had a good season last year and it will be a tough game, but we’ve got to believe in ourselves.

“I’ve got to put a team out that will get a result on a tricky pitch, they’re a good team and we know the importance of getting three points.”
