A WORD FROM THE TOWN CAMP:

Ben Garner, Swindon Town Head Coach: "Sutton have had a phenomenal season, they really have.

"Obviously, they’re going to Wembley now in the final of The Papa John’s Trophy and they’re still in the mix for promotion at the top of the league.

"Matt Gray has done an incredible job there, very well organised. I think they’ve got good characters and they look like they’ve got a really good team ethic there at Sutton.

"They play very well, they’re very direct, they look for the second balls, they’re good off the restarts and set-pieces and they do it well

"They’ve got a style of play, it’s very clear.

"Everyone knows their jobs and what they’re doing, so we have to respect that, we have to cope with it and obviously, we need to put as much of our stamp on the game as we can and get our type of football rather than theirs.

"You’ve got to battle against Sutton, you’ve got to be up for the fight, you’ve got to be willing to work because if not, they will beat anyone in this division and they have shown that regularly this season."
