Cards grab a point
St Albans City 1 Woking 1
19 January 2019
Vanarama National League South

The Cards’ eight-game winning streak in the league came to an end this afternoon at Clarence Park but Woking were perhaps a bit fortunate to come away with even a point in the face of a lively and prolific home attack. The Saints took the lead in the 31st minute after Woking had failed to clear their penalty area but Jack Cook quickly thumped home an equaliser. St Albans hit the woodwork twice in the second half as the Woking goal led something of a charmed life but the best chance of all fell to Greg Luer from the penalty spot, only for the Saints’ keeper Dean Snedker to save his effort.

With Toby Edser (possibly only temporarily), Jamar Loza, Noel Leighton and Aaron Eyoma departing in the last few days, and Max Kretzschmar still injured, Dowse had fewer attacking forces to choose from. Predictably, he lined up with Christian Jolley, Armani Little and Harry Taylor in midfield and, as widely expected, Nicky Wheeler out on the left flank. Up front, though, he started with both Jake Hyde and Harvey Bradbury, with Greg Luer and Paul Hodges on the bench, where they were joined by new keeper James Dunn, Ian Gayle and Dan Spence.

On a cold, dull, misty afternoon, and on a rather heavy-looking pitch, the game started scrappily, with neither side making much impression in the opening exchanges. There were already signs, though, that Woking would have their work cut out in trying to deal with the lively and skilful Soloman Sambou, who was ably supported by David Moyo and Khale Da Costa in an attack which looked more sprightly than Woking’s in this encounter.

The Cards suffered an early setback when Hyde injured his hamstring and had to be replaced by Luer. Although Bradbury and Luer worked hard, neither was able to provide the control of the ball up front which Hyde might have offered.

The Cards’ first real attack did not occur till the 21st minute when Jolley put a pass into Luer’s stride. The substitute did well to cut the ball back into the path of the advancing Little but the young Oxford United midfielder could not get it out from under his feet. Woking’s pressure continued with a couple of corners, from the first of which Taylor did manage to get a deflected shot away.

The initiative swung back to the home side as the free-ranging Sambou shot straight at Craig Ross.... [ Read More ]
