Young Cards looking for revenge against resurgent Chesterfield

Young Cards looking for revenge against resurgent Chesterfield

Woking will be looking for a measure of revenge this afternoon as they host play-off chasing Chesterfield at the Laithwaite Community Stadium.

In stark contrast to their current plight, the Cards were in fine form the last time these two sides met back in October, with the defeat at the Technique Stadium the only major blemish for Alan Dowson’s side as they took 10 points from their first five league games. The two sides have gone in opposite directions since then, with the Cards’ well-documented injury crisis speeding up their slide down the table, whilst the Spireites, inspired by new manager James Rowe, have surged into play-off contention. Woking’s defeat at in-form Dagenham & Redbridge on Monday was a seventh straight loss for the Cards and a tenth in 11 games in all competitions.

Their flattering 4-0 win over Woking aside, Chesterfield endured a difficult start to the season, and looking in line for another campaign of struggle after finishing in 20th place last season. However, the arrival of former Gloucester City boss Rowe in place of John Pemberton in November proved a masterstroke, with the club winning 14 of their first 21 league games under their new manager. Their form has detreated slightly of late, as the club battles injury problems of their own, leading to a run of just one win in seven, but they remain firmly in play-off contention with five games to go, sitting just two points adrift of the top seven.

Woking – Team News

Moussa Diarra is expected to miss the rest of the season as he returns to France to visit his family. However, Dowse will have Jack Cook available again, after the defender missed the last two games through suspension. Malachi Napa also made his return from injury as a substitute against Dagenham and could play a larger part today. Meanwhile, Sam Ashford will be hoping to keep up his fine form in front of goal, with the on loan Crawley Town frontman having scored in each of his last two games, taking his tally for the season to four in 10 appearances.

Chesterfield – The Boss

James Rowe was appointed in November and has enjoyed a successful spell in charge thus far. Prior to joining the Spireites, the 37-year-old spent a year with National League North side Gloucester City, who he left top of the table upon his departure.... [ Read More ]
