Brian Caffarey - 6th February 2009


3pm on Saturday 7 February 2009

Assuming the weather doesn?t supervene, the Cards face another crucial game tomorrow against the Whites, who lie just below them in the table but who have been strengthening their squad in a determined attempt to avoid relegation. The Cards could do with at least a draw from this fixture if they are not to slide back into the bottom four. Phil Gilchrist will no doubt be hoping, though, that the Cards can do better than that.


The Cards have beaten the Whites twice this season already. In September they fought hard to gain a 1-0 home win in the league and, in early December, they had a comfortable 3-0 win at Salisbury in the Setanta Shield. However, Nick Holmes?s side gained revenge a couple of weeks later when they inflicted a 2-1 home defeat on the Cards in the First Round of the FA Trophy.

Phil Gilchrist seems likely to be missing Tom Hutchinson, Danny Bunce, Paolo Vernazza and Delano Sam-Yorke through injury but has no suspensions to worry about. He will need to decide whether to start again with Charlie Moone up front to partner Wilfried Domoraud, scorer of a hat-trick in the Cards? 4-1 victory over Northwich, or adopt a more defensive formation.


A financial crisis forced the Whites to offload many of their best players in the autumn but former Director Peter Yeldon has now returned to the fold and has provided some cash to enable Nick Holmes to strengthen his squad. Chris Todd (recovering from treatment for leukaemia) and Michael Brough (ex-Stevenage and FGR) have arrived from Torquay and Charles Ademeno?s loan from Southend has been extended. The Whites can also now hold onto the prolific Matt Tubbs, who had previously been on loan at Bournemouth. Daniel Spence has also joined the Whites from Reading following the end of his three month loan at Kingfield. But Liam Feeney, who had been recalled from his loan spell at Southend, has now signed permanently for Bournemouth. The burly Robbie Matthews has gone to Crawley on loan, Dave Winfield?s loan from Aldershot Town has ended and two players on loan at Newport ? former captain Aaron Cook and Wayne Turk ? are not returning.

Follow A322 and M3, leaving at junction 8 to join the A303. Leave A303 at the Countess Roundabout / Amesbury Junction and carry on through the town onto the A345. Continue towards Salisbury, past the turn-off to Boscombe Down on the left, up the hill and through the traffic lights at High Post (a hotel and nightclub are on your right) and carry on down to the Beehive junction roundabout. There is a large white sign, clearly marked 'football ground' in brown writing at the bottom. Turn left, through the first small roundabout and then left into Partridge Way.


Trains direct to Salisbury leave Woking at 16 and 46 minutes past the hour and the journey time is roughly one hour. Trains back leave at 20 and 45 minutes past the hour. The station is a considerable way from the ground, so you would need to take a taxi.

Come on, you Cards!
