Sutton Trip North Frozen Off

Article by Mark Bravery

Sutton United's away match at FC Halifax Town this Saturday (3 March) has, unsurprisingly, been called off in view of the freezing weather which is forecast to continue into the weekend. Reportedly, there are six inches of snow on the pitch at The Shay.

The game is expected to be rearranged for a Tuesday evening later this month.

Sutton are in action next Tuesday (6 March, kick-off 7.45pm) when they entertain Woking, a Surrey derby postponed from early February because of United's involvement in the FA Trophy.

Last season Sutton won this fixture 4-1. In September of this campaign they were rather unlucky to lose 2-0 at Woking's Kingfield ground, having had the better of the first half but in the second conceding twice to Charlton loanee Regan Charles-Cook, his first goal seemingly scored from an offside position while the second was a stoppage-time strike on the break.

Woking rose to third in the table in October, but have since slipped to fifteenth, winning only two of their last fourteen league games. Last Saturday they drew 0-0 at home to Boreham Wood.

Nicky Bailey remains a major doubt for Sutton because of a knee injury.
