Maidstone United vs Sutton United
England – National League
Date: Tuesday, 4 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Gallagher Stadium (Maidstone).
Maidstone United and Sutton United are going to face each other in the ninth round of the English National League.
Home side managed to avoid the relegation after winning seven points in the final three round of the last season. They finished as 19th, and it seems they are going to have another struggle for the survival. Steven Watt’s side cannot be proud of their start of the new campaign as they suffered four defeats in the last five rounds. The hosts need to start scoring more goals, while their defensive line should tighten up. Maidstone United have already suffered two defeats when playing in front of the home fans and they need to improve urgently if they don’t want to get into a real trouble.
Sutton United are enjoying a good start as they have lost just once so far. However, they’ve been involved in high number of draws which prevented them to find their place in the top seven. In the last four occasions, the visitors haven’t celebrated a victory and they need to get back on winning streak if they want to be competitive for one of the promotion spots. Ross Lafayette and the lads are producing enough in the front, while their defence is not easy to crack. Sutton United are putting fine performances when playing away from home as they managed to snatch five points from away pitches.
