WOKING v WEYMOUTH
7.45pm on Tuesday 7 October 2008
The Cards look to extend their winning run to four games as they take on John Hollins?s Weymouth side at Kingfield tomorrow evening. Saturday?s excellent win at Mansfield, the Cards? first win away from home, lifted them out of the bottom four. With two home games this week ? the second is on Saturday against York City ? Phil Gilchrist?s side now has a chance to push up into mid-table.
Three 1-0 wins in succession suggest that the side?s current strengths lie in a very solid defence but that goals are still hard to come by ? and that?s exactly how it is. But no Woking fan is going to be complaining about the latter just yet, when a few weeks ago the Cards were languishing down at the foot of the table. Subject to any fresh injury worries, Woking will presumably line up as at the start of the game against Mansfield, the only change from previous games being a starting place for Joel Ledgister in place of Matt Pattison. Ironically, two of Woking?s ex-Terras, Paolo Vernazza and Abdou El Kholti, seem certain to miss the game, still recovering from injuries which have sidelined them for several weeks. The other, Wilfried Domoraud, recently awarded a year?s contract, will be keen to add to add to his goal tally.
The Terras started the season at a lick, winning three and drawing one out of their first four games, but then hit a lean patch, losing three and drawing three of their following six games. The last of those draws, though, was a 2-2 home draw against pace setters, Crawley Town, and their last two games have both resulted in 3-2 wins, away at Northwich Victoria and home against Eastbourne Borough on Saturday. The danger men are Chris McPhee, who scored Ebbsfleet?s winner in the FA Trophy Final last season, and the experienced Stuart Beavon. Defender Scott Doe misses the game as a result of his red card on Saturday.
06-07 Woking 4-0 Weymouth
(Sole, Hutchinson, McAllister, Lambu)
Weymouth 2-3 Woking
(Hutchinson, McAllister, Sole)
Woking 1-1 Weymouth (4 September 2007)
Ex-Card Jefferson Louis scored Weymouth?s goal in the 50th minute, which spurred Woking on to an equaliser but the Cards never looked like they?d win it. Sole finished off a good move after Marvin Morgan had unselfishly passed to him after latching onto a loose ball and going round a defender.
Weymouth 0-1 Woking (19 January 2008)
Marvin Morgan scored the only goal of the game in a game of missed chances for Weymouth. Sido Jombarti put the ball wide from eight yards with an open goal in front of him, and current Card Wilfried Domoraud had a couple of chances as a loanee for the Terras.
Another great line-up tomorrow evening, including:
- a profile of Patrice Konan
- a look at the fantastic work of the Project 3000 team
- another instalment of Neil Bennett?s wonderfully nostalgic evocation of the 1996-97 season (?.. if only we?d signed Grazioli!?)
- Sadie Gordon?s look at life in League Two
- a report of the Youth side?s FA Youth Cup win over Chertsey Town
- Dan Donovan in the ?fanfare? chair
plus all the usual reports, previews and superb photos by David Holmes.
Come on, you Cards!
