Cards look for revenge

Brian Caffarey - 18th December 2009

Cards look for revenge WOKING v BATH CITY
3pm on Saturday 19 December 2009

Weather permitting, the Cards on Saturday will be looking to avenge the surprising 5-0 defeat they suffered down at Twerton Park at the beginning of the month. Graham Baker’s side have won their last three games at Kingfield and, with a good performance last week in the Trophy against Forest Green Rovers, shouldn’t lack confidence tomorrow in spite of the reverse at the Romans’ hands. It won’t have gone unnoticed in the Woking camp that the Romans’ official website described the Cards’ display on 1 December as “one of the most clueless 45 minutes of football seen at Twerton for a long time”. What more incentive does a team need?

WOKING

I hope to get an update from Graham later today but he told me earlier in the week that the only expected absentees (apart from Delano Sam-Yorke and Jerome Maledon, both on loan at Cray Wanderers) were Charlie Moone, who suffered a broken nose in training, and Joe McNerney, serving the second game of the two-match suspension he picked up on loan at Corinthian Casuals.

Matthew Wright returns after being cup-tied for the Forest Green Rovers game.

BATH CITY

Adie Britton’s side currently lie in 10th place with 28 points from 20 games and are well-positioned to make a push for a play-off spot if they can put together a decent run. We know, from the game at Twerton Park, that they have useful strikers in Darren Edwards and Kaid Mohamed, whilst Lewis Hogg and the former Latvian international Andrejs Stolcers do some excellent work in midfield. Keeper Ryan Robinson, with some excellent saves, prevented the scoreline from being more respectable.

Bath City’s recent results have been:

14 Nov BSS Bath City 1 Chelmsford C 0
21 Nov FAT Maidenhead U 1 Bath City 0
28 Nov FAC Bath City 1 Forest Green Rovers 2
1 Dec BSS Bath City 5 Woking 0
5 Dec BSS Bath City 1 Newport County 1
8 Dec BSS Braintree Town 2 Bath City 0

Bath were upset at having to travel down to Braintree midweek in spite of the Iron having originally agreeing to switch the game to the following Saturday, when both teams had a blank day. Missing Edwards and Mohamed in the first half, Bath slumped to a 2-0 defeat in an attritional aerial battle. However, they will be well rested for tomorrow’s encounter.
