The Opposition
Sutton United are currently 23rd in Sky Bet League Two. They have won four, drawn six and lost 15 of their league games so far. To get to the third round of the FA Cup, they have beaten beaten AFC Fylde 2-1, and Horsham 3-0. 

Sutton were a non-league team for 123 years of their existence, before being promoted into the EFL in 2020/21. They finished eighth in their first year in League Two, then 14th last season. 

Matt Gray, who was Sutton's manager when they promoted to the EFL, lost his job after the Amber and Chocolates lost 8-0 to Stockport County on 19th December. Jason Goodliffe, who was the assistant manager, has been in caretaker charge as the manager search goes on.
