Fans hold their breath as Sutton United hope to do the unthinkable

Published at 3:52pm 20th February 2017. (Updated at 7:17am 21st February 2017)

The whole of Sutton will be glued to their TV screens tonight as their team take on Premier League big boys Arsenal.

Sutton United are the lowest ranked team left in the FA Cup.

Meanwhile their opponents have won the competition 12 times.

If the team pull off the unthinkable they will be in to the quarter finals and face fellow non-league side Lincoln City.

Colin Charlton is a fan and told Eagle Radio: "It will be electric - it will be absolutely superb - it is the first time we have been in the fifith round.

"It is putting Sutton on the map again - the whole of Sutton will be behind them, supporting them."

Sutton United players tell us how they are feeling ahead of the match:

 

Stuart Bell will be there tonight - but has mixed loyalties: "I will be attending the game - I have amazingly got a ticket. They are like gold dust at the moment so I am really happy.

"But I am actually an Arsenal fan but I am in the Sutton end.

"If Sutton can score tonight I will be very happy - but I do want arsenal to win I'll be honest."
