Non-League preview: Red-hot Byatt has Tooting & Mitcham on a roll while Sutton United are off the seaside

Jamie Byatt will hope to continue his red-hot scoring streak when Tooting & Mitcham United go to Whitstable Town tomorrow.

The striker, who joined the Terrors from Corinthian Casuals this summer, has found the net in their past two games – wins against Farnham Town in the FA Cup last Saturday and Whyteleafe in Ryman Division One South on Tuesday.

Despite only being 14th, they will be favourites against Whitstable Town who have taken just one point from their opening eight games.

In the Vanarama National League South, Sutton United travel to Weston Super-Mare having narrowly lost 1-0 to leaders Ebbsfleet United on Tuesday.

Referee Chris Pollard was the centre of attention then, allowing Jordan Parkes’ goal to stand despite Sutton feeling there was a foul on Craig Eastmond in the build-up.

He also awarded Sutton a last-minute penalty but Craig Dundas’s spot-kick was saved by Ebbsfleet goalkeeper Brandon Hall and, in the ensuing skirmish, Sutton had Bedsente Gomis sent off for pushing Matt Fish.

Sutton will be hoping for an easier afternoon against Weston, who have just one win from their opening nine games.

In the Ryman Premier, Hampton & Richmond Borough travel to Essex to play Craig Edwards’s Billericay Town.

The Beavers are 10th with 13 points and will be hoping for a return to form after being knocked out of the FA Cup by Dulwich Hamlet last Saturday.

Following an entertaining 3-2 replay victory over Farnborough in the FA Cup on Monday, Kingstonian host Canvey Island on Sunday.

In the same league, Met Police play bottom of the table VCD Athletic at home tomorrow.

They will be hoping to improve a record of just one win at home this season.

In Ryman Division One South, Carshalton Athletic play Worthing in a mid-table clash, Walton & Hersham go to Peacehaven & Telscombe, Corinthian Casuals are flying to Guernsey and Walton Casuals host Hythe Town.

In the Combined Counties Premier League, Sutton Common Rovers will be after a third win a week when they host Westfield.

SCR followed up last week’s league win at Badshot Lea with a 1-0 victory over Guildford City in the Cherry Red Records Premier Challenge Cup on Monday.

Colliers Wood United go to Knaphill and Raynes Park Vale host Badshot Lea.
