📝 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.


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.
