Last time we met
We last played Sutton Coldfield on Monday 27 August, where the teams played out a 1-1 draw, in what was Sporting’s third game of the season. Josh Quaynor scored Bromsgrove’s goal, with a sublimely taken free kick. The match report from that can be read here.
Manager Bren Kelly’s preview of the Boxing Day encounter can be read here.

- (Home: P9 W3 D3 L3)
- (Away: P7 W4 D0 L3)
- Their last five league games have seen them win two and lose three, with those victories being away at Cambridge City (0-2) and at home to the dangerous Bedford Town (3-2).
- Sutton Coldfield did go on a six match unbeaten league run earlier in the season, winning four and drawing two in a spell that spanned across late October and early November.
This will be a very tough encounter – we need YOU to be a part of the famous VG atmosphere and spur our lads on – truly, you do become the 12th man.
Have a very Merry Christmas and see you tomorrow!
