Located in Surrey, the Borough Sports Ground [VBS Community Stadium] has witnessed steady progression over the last 15 years, culminating in the step-up as champions of the National League for the team at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Slightly older fans will recall that Sutton enjoyed a memorable FA Cup run back in the 1988/89 season when they romped through the qualifying rounds and the first and second rounds proper with victories over Walton & Hersham, Dagenham and Aylesbury United, to tee-up a tie with First Division Coventry City, who had actually won the trophy just 18-months earlier.

The U's won 2–1 with goals from Tony Rains and Matthew Hanlan and were darlings of the nation following their stunning efforts. 

Sutton had a weekend off due to their early exit in the competition this time round, having fallen foul of a shock at the hands of National League South side Farnborough, but they'll be keen to get back to action having returned to winning ways in the league with a 1-0 win over Rochdale.

Goals have been harder for them to find in this, their second season in the EFL, but their six victories have kept them in touch in the lower section of the division's mid-table. 

We've only met twice, but it's the visitors who have the upper hand with two wins and no goals conceded thus far.

Winger Will Randall has been with Sutton since the summer of 2019 having joined from Newport.

The former Swindon and Wolves livewire has over 100 appearances for the club under his belt, with four goals from 17 outings this term.

He netted the winner against Dale a fortnight ago so will be in confident mood.

At Brunton Park in January 2022 first half goals from David Ajiboye and Isaac Olaofe were enough to get the job done for the visitors.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

The first ever meeting of these clubs in September 2021 went emphatically the way of the Football League newcomers, with Donovan Wilson netting the first goal of the day with just three minutes on the clock. Alistair Smith bagged a brace, and David Ajiboye rubbed salt into the wounds to make it 4-0 on the day. Manasse Mampala was given his marching orders as it all feel apart for the Blues.
