Sutton United are expecting a large crowd for their clash with National League table-toppers Leyton Orient at Gander Green Lane tomorrow.

Orient have an allocation of 1,600 tickets for the showdown with the U's who are still in play-off contention after last Saturday's dramatic 2-1 win at Boreham Wood.

Harry Beautyman put Sutton ahead in the 15th minute but Ricky Shakes restored parity for the Hertfordshire side on the half hour.

However, Craig Eastmond headed the winner in the 95th minute to lift United to ninth place, just three points outside the play-offs.

United, who are currently running an excellent season ticket offer, will hope to hand out a repeat dose of the 1-0 victory they secured at Orient's Breyer Group Stadium back in September when Jonah Ayunga scored the only goal of the game.

After a recent poor run of form, the victory has helped to lift the mood around Gander Green Lane, according to assistant boss Micky Stephens.

"It always feel good to win in the last minute," he told SUFCtv. "What looked like being a stalemate ended with us taking the three points.

"It's never over. The main things is, we've had a difficult two or three weeks for a number of reasons but we've got a smile back and the players deserve that.

"We haven't quite had the rub of the green in some games and not played particularly well, we hold our hands up for that."

Looking ahead to the final four games, Stephens put a brave face on United's next assignments against two of the the National League's top five teams.

"We've got two easy games coming up against Orient and Wrexham," he joked.

"That's not too bad for our makeshift back four and we're struggling to field five subs, so we look forward to that."
