Preview: Notts County vs. Sutton United - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Tuesday's League Two clash between Notts County and Sutton United, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Out-of-form Notts County host cellar-dwelling League Two side Sutton United at Meadow Lane in a rescheduled gameweek 27 fixture.

The initial match was moved due to Sutton's involvement in the third round of the FA Cup.

Notts County have lost two on the trot in League Two and host Sutton keen to avoid three defeats in succession.

The home side defeated Newport County 3-1 in mid-February, but that triumph has not been followed with positive results, with the 13th-placed side losing to Wrexham (1-0) and Crewe Alexandra (3-1).

Stuart Maynard's troops are in a weird position of not being in danger of relegation — the Magpies are 21 points clear of the drop zone — and are slipping away in the race for a playoff spot.

Be that as it may, the East Midlands side remain four points adrift of Gillingham in seventh despite winning one match in 2024, possibly giving the home side motivation against the league's bottom side on Tuesday.

Despite their recent defeats, Notts County should look to their previous 10 wins at home to give them confidence, as only Wrexham (12) and MK Dons (11) have more home victories than the Nottingham-based club.

By contrast, Sutton have the league's worst road record, suffering 11 losses in their 16 away games — only Tranmere Rovers (12) have lost more.

The January appointment of Steve Morison has not changed the tide for the London outfit, whose one away victory came at Wimbledon on Boxing Day.

That was the Yellows' last recorded victory in League Two, pointing to relegation at the season's culmination if positive results cannot be mustered in the concluding months.

Much of Sutton's struggles have come from their inability to keep clean sheets, with the capital club keeping opponents out just twice this season, coincidentally in wins against Walsall (4-0) in October and Wimbledon on December 26.

Currently on an 11-game streak without a clean sheet, Sutton face an uphill task on the road, even if their opponents have not secured commendable results in 2024.

David McGoldrick was forced off in the 3-1 loss against Crewe, and the experienced forward may be absent if he is not fit to play on Tuesday.

In the 36-year-old's potential absence, Macaulay Langstaff, scorer of a brace in Notts County's last league victory, could carry the can for the hosts.

Charlie Lakin's goal secured a point against Colchester United to end Sutton's three-game losing run, and the midfielder should start on Tuesday.

Harry Smith, whose last goal came in November, missed the chance to possibly win the game after having an 80th-minute penalty saved, but the striker should retain his place up top for the visitors.


Notts County possible starting lineup:
Ashby-Hammond; Macari, Warner, Baldwin, Cameron; Jones, Bostock, Robertson; Crowley; Jatta, Langstaff

Sutton United possible starting lineup:
Arnold; Jackson, Kizzi, Goodlife, Hart; Eastmond, Clay, Lakin; Coley, Smith, Adom-Malaki

We say: Notts County 2-0 Sutton United

Notts County's awful results should ease in Tuesday's rescheduled game against the league's bottom club, with the hosts expected to return to winning ways after recent defeats.
