FOOTBALL - Robins prepare for trip to league leaders Sutton

KNOWLE FC are set for a tough test away at league leaders Sutton United this weekend and know that anything but a win will likely end their title chances.

The Robins sit third in the Midland Football League Division Two table, 13 points behind Sutton with three games in hand.

Sutton are one of just two teams to have beaten the Robins this season after they claimed a 3-1 victory at the Draintech Community Ground in November.

Since then Knowle have won five games on the spin in all competitions whilst Sutton have won four of their last five league matches scoring 23 goals in the process.

However, the Robins have the meanest defence in the division, having shipped just 14 goals in 16 matches, and will be confident of blunting the league’s top scorers.

Knowle joint manager, Matthew Seeley said: “It will be the hardest game of the season, United are good, very good, brilliant in fact.

“That said, we shall be stronger than when we played them back in November.”

Entrance is free of charge.

Knowle travel to Sutton on Saturday, February 4 with kick-off at 3pm at Coleshill Road.
