A Sutton United Front: Too Close To Call

Article by Johnnie Lowery

The battle at the top of the National League continues to intrigue, with U’s very much still in it after coming from behind to get a draw against fellow challengers Wrexham at the weekend.

Elsewhere in the division Macclesfield’s win away to Aldershot was the talking point, with the current top side heading to second place Tranmere on Tuesday night.

It’s impossible to predict what might happen with so much still to play for, but you wouldn’t write us off just yet.

The bookies recently had Sutton as favourites for the title, based largely you’d have thought on the run in of fixtures that remain.

I disagree with this approach of looking at things to be honest: clubs fighting for their lives often pick things up and all of our next 6 opponents are very much in that battle.

Torquay on Tuesday night will be a particularly tough one you feel with the fatigue that is likely to be appearing in U’s players after the recent gruelling schedule.

It’s hard to make sense of Torquay’s form, two wins on the trot before a 3-0 home defeat to crisis club Dagenham on Saturday.

Of course the South Coast side won at Gander Green Lane back in November, denying United a single shot on target in that game.

Hopefully the lads will be fired up to get revenge for the defeat that night and will come out the blocks quickly, keeping the promotion dream very much alive
