Cards seek three more points

Brian Caffarey - 19th September 2011

Cards seek three more points Bromley v Woking
7.45pm on Tuesday 20 September 2011

The Cards travel to Bromley tomorrow (Tuesday) evening looking to pick up three more points after a good win over Dover Athletic on Saturday. With Welling and Dartford both also winning on Saturday, there is still little between the top sides at present in the BSBS league table.

WOKING

Garry Hill’s adroit use of his substitutes’ bench on Saturday seemed to turn the tide decisively in the Cards’ favour as Paris Cowan-Hall and Jay Davies netted in the last ten minutes after Davies, Gez Sole and Elvis Hammond had replaced Jack King, Dale Binns and Wayne Gray. Their introduction seemed to provide the fillip needed to exert that extra pressure on Dover which led to the breakthrough. It will be interesting to see if Garry continues to start with Wayne on Tuesday evening or whether Elvis will line up once more. Jay Davies and Gez Sole continue to press for a starting place too. Nathan Koranteng, another very useful player who hasn’t been able to force his way into the starting eleven, has now gone on a month’s loan to Boreham Wood.

In the absence of any news of an extension of Mike Cestor’s loan, I assume that Derek Duncan will come back into the side at left-back.

BROMLEY

The Whites lie 12th in the table with four wins, one draw and four defeats so far and with 15 goals scored and 16 conceded. At home they’ve beaten Boreham Wood 4-0, lost 1-0 to Maidenhead United, beaten Sutton 3-0 and drawn 2-2 against Salisbury City. They go into this game on the back of a disappointing 4-1 defeat at Staines Town at the weekend.

Bromley’s squad includes strikers Leon McKenzie and Danny Hockton, while the midfield was strengthened in the summer with the return from Reading of midfielder Harry Harding.

By coach

The Cards Trust coach leaves Kingfield at 5.30pm. Cost £12 for members, £17 for non-members. Phone the Club Shop or email shop@wokingfc.co.uk to book. Please remember that you cannot park in the main car park at Kingfield because this will be being used by Hayes and Yeading. Please use the car park behind the KRE instead.

By car

Exit junction 4 of the M25 onto the A21. After 4 miles fork left onto A232 / Croydon Road, then right onto B265 / Baston Road. After 1.5 miles the ground is on the right after a mini-roundabout.

By train

Nearest station: Bromley South

Take the train to Clapham Junction, then to London Victoria, and then on to Bromley South. Some train times from Victoria: 18.27, 18.30, 18.42 and 18.57, with a journey time of roughly 20 minutes. Some trains back: 22.01 (slow), 22.20 and 22.35.

Walking from the station to the ground takes about 15 minutes. Turn left out of the station and then right shortly afterwards into Westmoreland Road, at the traffic lights by the T-junction near the Police Station and the Churchill building. Turn left just after the church into Hayes Road. Take care to follow the road when it bears round to the left rather than ending up in Cameron Road. At the end of Hayes Road turn right into Hayes Lane having first crossed Hayes Lane using the traffic island near the mini-roundabout. The drive to the ground is about 200m on your left.

LAST SEASON

Bromley 2 Woking 2
9 November 2010

The Cards travelled to Bromley having just held Brighton and Hove Albion to a highly creditable 0-0 draw in the FA Cup at the Withdean Stadium. Graham Baker brought in Craig Faulconbridge and Dave Gilroy in place of the rested Elvis Hammond and Moses Ademola. In an open game Woking took the lead in fortuitous fashion midway through the first half when a hacked clearance hit his back and looped over the home keeper. But Warren McBean equalised with a superb back-post header ten minutes later. In the second half Bromley increasingly dominated and it was no surprise when John Scarborough stabbed home to give them the lead in the 61st minute. McBean and Tony Finn spurned chances to make the game safe for Bromley before, in injury time, substitute Hammond’s shot was blocked by a defender’s hand, with Gilroy converting the penalty.

Woking 1 Bromley 0

This proved to be the last win in the Cards’ amazing unbeaten run, being followed by a 4-1 reverse at Eastleigh. With James Walker making his first start, Woking started brightly but were soon frustrated by a well-marshalled Bromley defence, whose high line often caught Elvis Hammond offside. The breakthrough eventually came in the second half from substitute Craig Dobson. Latching onto a through ball from Jay Davies, he outpaced the Bromley defence, sped into the box and fired home.

Come on, you Cards!
