📝 Match Preview: Sutton United (H)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday'

18 September 2021

Exeter City will looking to build on Saturday's thumping 4-0 win over Scunthorpe United on Saturday as Sutton United make their first ever trip to St James Park.

The Grecians are now unbeaten in their last five league matches and will have eyes on climbing the table come 4:45pm on Saturday.

Sutton have settled well into their first season in the Football League and come into the match on the back of two impressive wins in the last week over Stevenage and Hartlepool United.

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

Matt Taylor is asking for "more of the same again" but be wary of the threat the opposition pose as he prepares his side for the inaugural visit of Sutton United.

City go into the game on the back of a resounding 4-0 victory against Scunthorpe last weekend and the Manager now seeks more consistency from his squad. 

"We know that if we play to our potential and move the ball, we can hurt opposition. The boys have trained well this week and they've had to because all of a sudden we have real competition for places. They know full well they can't take their foot off the gas."

On the opposition, Matt is aware the danger the U's possess. "We're playing against a team in good form, finding thir feet at League Two level and doing really well. 

"We followed them closely last season, so we know how difficult this weekend will be."

One to Watch

Harry Beautyman fired the U’s into the Football League chipping in with 11 goals from Midfield last season. The playmaker has made 125 appearences for Sutton since joining from Stevenage in 2018.

HBeautyman.jpg

Born in London, Beautyman was a key cog in the Leyton Orient youth set-up but failed to register a senior appearance for the U’s. Loans to St Alban’s and Hastings bridge his first move to Gander Green Lane in 2011, where 21 goals in 81 games moved him to Welling.

Whilst at the Bexley club, Beautyman was spotted by Peterborough United, where he initially went on loan, then permanent in 2014/15. He made his league debut against Bristol City in November 2015 and signed permanently the following January.

Spells at Northampton and Stevenage followed before dropping back into non-league with Sutton and being the engine to drag the Amber and Chocolate club to League Two.

Match Reports

📝 Match Report: Exeter City 2 Sutton United 0

Our write-up of Saturday's victory.

18 September 2021

Sam Nombe’s brilliant brace saw off Sutton United in an open affair at St James Park.

Two second half goals from the striker were the difference as he opened his account in red and white, though the visitors from London made life difficult for much of the afternoon.

Donovan Wilson hit the underside of the bar and George Ray desperately had to clear off the line as the U’s were made to rue their missed chances.

Harry Kite, Matt Jay and Timothee Dieng all went close for the Grecians, but the day belonged to Sam Nombe.

Matt Taylor stayed unchanged from the 4-0 victory over Scunthorpe the week prior. One change on the bench saw Colin Daniel feature instead of Jonathan Grounds.

Sutton had the better of the opening stages. Ben Goodcliffe went closest from one of the plethora of early corners, but George Ray was able to flick away the danger.

Cameron Dawson was forced into a desperate save on 17 minutes. David Ajiboye plucked the ball out of mid-air and Dawson, who was seemingly in no-mans-land, scrambled across to deny the Sutton man rolling the ball home.

The visitors clearly came to play on the front foot. Enzio Boldewijn skied high as the U’s gained the upper hand.

The team in green struck the woodwork midway through the first half. Yet another United corner caused issues and Dawson was relieved that Joe Kizzi’s header flicked off the post.

Exeter tried to grow into the game. Jake Caprice had his first foray down the channel and laid off Alex Hartridge to swing into the far post. Dean Bouzanis was called into his first action of the day.

From the counter, Richie Bennett then rose highest from an Ajiboye cross to head over.

Tim Dieng tried to spark City into life. The Frenchman nicked the ball from Kizzi around thirty yards out. A delicate nutmeg on the next defender allowed Dieng to only strike high from range.

Unbelievably City didn’t take the lead from the next attack.

Caprice got joy down the left and delivered a low ball into the middle. The half clearance found Harry Kite, who shot was blocked. The ball fell back to him, and he squared it to Matt Jay. The skippers shot was miraculously denied on the line and Kite again was stopped by the London side’s desperation.

Spurred on by their last ditch defending, Sutton cleared the resulting corner. As they came over the half-way line Bennett played in former-Grecian Donovan Wilson, who fired at goal.

His effort crashed off the underside of the bar and to some, goal line technology was needed. Hawkeye was absent and referee Scott Oldham arrowed his decision to the Grecians.

Into the second half and corners kept coming for Sutton. Louis John meeting the first delivery but directing it wide.

Sam Nombe was quiet in attack for much of the game, but his defensive capabilities were on show as he cleared off the line. Caprice soon fired at goal, but the effort was simple for the ‘keeper.

On 65 minutes, Sutton United squandered a glorious opportunity to take the lead. Richie Bennett found himself with the goal at his mercy but George Ray, we don’t know how much he meant it, but George Ray got a touch and diverted the ball over.

And Exeter made them pay through Sam Nombe, with his first goal for Exeter City!

Kyle Taylor stole the ball in midfield and played it to his doppelganger in MJ. The captain put Nombe through and after a bit of trickery to get away from his marker, slid the ball under the keeper via a heavy deflection.

City in full swing earned another chance. Owura Edwards-Owura caused havoc after his introduction and found Jevani Brown on the angle. Brown’s shot ricocheted up, but comfortably, into Bouzanis’ hands. Jay similarly was halted by the Sutton shot stopper as the Grecians dominated.  

And Nombe made the points safe with five minutes left. Louis John tripped on the halfway line which allowed Jay to thread through the City number 10 through. Any one of three City players could have been squared to but Nombe took his destiny into his own hands. He rounded the keeper with ease and rolled into an empty net- before wheeling away in front of a jubilant Big Bank.

As we moved into injury time Exeter had two clear shouts for a penalty. Edwards-Owura was bundled over in the area and though over 4,000 City fans claimed the foul, the one man who mattered disagreed- and Scott Oldham waved away the protests. Just seconds later, Josh Key was apparently tripped in the area but again no decision for the home side.    

City eased to a relieving final whistle and set up a mouth-watering encounter with Hartlepool United next week.
