Match Preview: Sutton head to The Suit Direct

11 February 2023

After last week's last-gasp win at Doncaster, Hartlepool United return to home action as Sutton United head to the Suit Direct (3pm KO).

The Opposition

Sutton are 12th in League Two, 15 points above Pools and just two points outside the play-offs. The Londoners have settled into Football League life well after coming up with Pools in 2021, and they'll want to go beyond their eight-placed finish last season.

Manager Matt Gray has an experienced squad to choose from, with captain Craig Eastmond an FA Youth Cup winner with Arsenal and full-back Rob Milsom boasting more than 300 career appearances.

The History

The sides have met 11 times previously, with Pools winning just once. Sutton have won five times, including three of the last five games.

Team News

Keith Curle has no new injury concerns ahead of the fixture, with the makeup on the team expected to be similar.

Alex Lacey and Tom Crawford are long-term absentees, while Callum Cooke is continuing his recovery.
