Cards look to continue unbeaten start
7:20pm, Sun 28th Aug 2011
Tonbridge Angels v Woking
3pm on Monday 29 August 2011
The Cards travel to newly-promoted Tonbridge Angels tomorrow afternoon (Bank Holiday Monday) in second place in the table and looking to extend their unbeaten start to the season which has so far netted three wins and two draws, with only one goal conceded. The Angels have had some decent results so far and will no doubt provide tough opposition.
At the beginning of the season it looked as though the Cards wouldn’t have much difficulty in scoring goals – as evidenced by the 5-0 opening victory at Sutton United. But the last three games have produced two 0-0 draws and a not wholly convincing 1-0 win over Basingstoke Town at Kingfield on Saturday. Chances are still being created but not enough are being put away. With so many games recently, and a number of options up front, Garry Hill may be tempted to make one or two changes in his starting line-up.
Tonbridge Angels started the season with a morale-boosting 4-0 win at Maidenhead United but fell to earth with a bump a couple of days later, losing 4-1 at home to Sutton United, who of course had just been walloped 5-0 by Woking. As if to bear out the frequently ‘topsy-turvy’ nature of results at this stage of the season, the Angels then beat Eastleigh 4-0 at home before losing 3-2 at Welling United. On Saturday they drew 0-0 with Kent rivals, Dover Athletic at Crabble.
Former Dover striker, Frannie Collin, has been the man in form, notching five goals in the Angels’ first five games. But Jon Main, who re-joined the club from AFC Wimbledon in the summer, has yet to get off the mark.
