Another win needed tomorrow

Brian Caffarey - 22nd March 2010

Another win needed tomorrow Woking v Hampton and Richmond Borough
7.45pm on Tuesday 23 March 2010

The Cards’ entertaining 4-2 win over Basingstoke Town on Saturday has fanned the embers of Woking’s play-off hopes but there is no room for error now and three points against Alan Devonshire’s in-form Beavers side is crucial if those hopes are still to be alive when Graham Baker’s side make the daunting trip to champions Newport County next Saturday.


The Cards, in 12th place, now lie six points behind fifth-placed Staines Town but have a game in hand on most of the clubs above them.

When I spoke earlier today to Graham Baker he was pondering some potentially difficult selection problems. Already missing Jon Boardman in defence with a cracked rib, and with Joe McNerney not able to be recalled from his loan, he saw Daniel Sintim go off with a tight hamstring on Saturday, followed by Tony Sinclair with a groin injury. Up front, Graham will also be definitely be missing Matthew Wright (serving the final part of his three-match suspension) and Delano Sam-Yorke, still recovering from a knee injury . There must be a doubt again over Craig Faulconbridge, who, for the second game running, had to be substituted at half-time as the result of his calf injury.


It’s not been a good season for last season’s losing play-off finalists, who currently languish in 17th place in the table. But they’ve just registered two good home wins – 3-1 over Woking’s nemesis, Bath City, and 4-1 on Saturday over Eastleigh – so the Cards know that they will have another tough battle on their hands tomorrow night.

The bustling Craig Dundas, Ian Hodges and Lawrence Yaku provide a threat up front, whilst midfielder Dave Tarpey, a dead ball specialist, has been in fine form.

Hampton’s recent results have been:

2 Mar BSS Hampton and RB 1 Havant and W 1
6 Mar BSS Worcester C 0 Hampton and RB 1
