Lost last two without scoring a goal. Played one up front in their last home game against Maidenhead which fans weren't happy about on Twitter.

We need to start Regan Booty in my opinion. From what I heard, did well against Harrogate and Wrexham. Need a winger in by Saturday though

A game Notts should get something out of. Sutton aren't great. An uninspiring 1-1 draw I reckon.

If Notts can give a steady performance, I think they should win but all this pins on Neal Ardley. I feel he's not making the most of the players at his disposal and I think it has shown in the last couple of games.

pin them back and it could be another chorley typed result.

it depends if they make it hard for notts, if its all hoofball i cant seeing anything other than a draw.

I think it will be a very scrappy encounter, unless Notts ensure they make a strong forward movement.

Otherwise, it will just be one of those games where we have to hope the players take whatever changes come, I would be surprised if we hammered them but who knows. Neal Ardley must read the signs in the game and if Sutton panic, go for a win - not to draw. I don't expect anything other than effort, 100% and attempting to win.

If Notts loses, or draws it will lead only to unrest.

The squad needs to give a performance which shows they're progressing and Neal Ardley must encourage this as an exception from. Sutton are a team we should be winning, there's nothing to suggest we can't.

I don't know what to say about this game, the past few matches have damped my mood and I don't know which Notts squad will turn up on the day. 🤷‍♂️

I think it will be a 2-1 win for Notts.

I can see Sutton finding the net first, with Notts making real work of the game. I don't think it will be pretty but the quality from the likes of Dennis and Enzio should be enough on the day.

You have to hope that the team can bounce back and put on a good performance, bad ones will come but overall we have looked much sharper at creating chances [just not finishing them].

If Notts learned to pass the ball in the oppositions half, using long direct passes at times to pick players out it would cause trouble. I don't get the need to hoof the ball anywhere other than the defence or unless it works.

It's a bad strategy and negative too.

We need to win .. play with at least four at the back and two up front. We need to score first and hold on to goal cause that right now is our down full. I think a few players shouldn’t retain there place but that’s for another time. Away from home not a fantastic record but always room for improvement

I want Ardley to go for a standard 442 formation.

Get the ball on the deck and yell out instructions to keep the players alert. Press them well, we will come back with the points. Fail, a draw or worse.

If we use a formation the players are comfortable with and play our own game there's no reason why we can't win. Maybe we should think about recalling Booty as well - he was getting rave reviews and even scored in his first few games, only to be benched.

1-0 down already.

Regan Booty sounds to be doing his best, yet players like Enzio Boldewijn etc are off their best. Kristian Dennis has almost just scored, but it's looking quite embarrassing that we are being outplayed by so much. Mitch Rose needs to step it up, he has the quality to make those around him click.

Just frustrating to see us concede so easily.

I think most would take the point, it sounds like we were unlucky in the second half.

Neal Ardley has asked for patience after, however, he needs to start making sure performances are consistent and quit making so many changes before the games. As I say, 1-1 doesn't seem that bad. Most comments have read seem optimistic about the standard of play.
