Sutton & Epsom head coach Lee Cholewa has warned his side against complacency as they prepare to take on Charlton Park on Saturday.

A superb run of form has seen Sutton climb to the top of the London Division One South table with a 10-point gap to their nearest rival, Guildford.

This weekend the league leaders host relegation-battlers Charlton Park, who have only mustered up three victories this season.

But despite sitting a full 73 points above the south east London side, Cholwea insists Sutton will endure a difficult afternoon if they fail to reach their standards.

He said: “If we don’t turn up or aren’t up for it then it will become a very difficult afternoon for us.

“It’s my job to make sure that doesn’t happen.

“Charlton Park were the team we beat in the play-offs a few years ago so there’s always a bit of spice in our games.

“They are in a battle for survival so it won’t be easy.”

Sutton have won 19 of their 22 league games so far this term but Cholwea has reiterated the need for composure with just four fixtures remaining.

“I have said on numerous occasions that we just need to take each game as it comes,” he said.

“The boys have great belief and confidence at the moment - it’s growing every week to be fair.

“We are feeling good but we know the job isn’t done yet and we can’t afford to slip up. The title isn’t going to be handed to us.”

Rugby Lane has been a happy hunting ground for Sutton, who have only lost one game on home soil all season.

Cholwea says the pressure on his side to perform at home has increased.

“There’s more expectation for us at home now, not only to win but to also play well,” he added.

“More people are coming down to watch us so there’s more pressure on us. But that’s what it’s all about and the players should embrace that.

“It’s your home ground, it’s where you train and spend a lot of time so no one likes losing at home and we are no different.”

The coach also confirmed that the Sutton squad is in good shape having enjoyed a break over the Easter period.

He said: “They are fresh from the week off, they should be champing at the bit to get out there now.

“It’s a long season but they are fit and looking after themselves. We cannot wait for the weekend.”
