We’re currently on a good run of results against Woking. We’re unbeaten in our last four games against The Cards, winning our last two home games, both of which are our best runs in this fixture.
Our best result against Woking came in an FA Cup first round tie in November 2014. The game was over by half time, as Neil Ashton, Wes York and Andy Bishop completed the 3-0 scoreline before the break.
Overall, we have a remarkably symmetrical record against The Cards as in the league we’ve won 5, drawn 5 and lost 5. Home advantage has been the dominant factor in games between the sides, although Woking have won at The Racecourse, in 2016 and 2014.
We earned a creditable draw at Woking earlier this season, with James Jennings opening the scoring but a Jake Lawlor own goal costing us the win.
The most recent defeat was one of the early signs that Gary Mills’ reign at The Racecourse wasn’t going to turn out as we hoped. He selected an odd-looking side, with Dom Vose playing off a lone striker, a position he only played in twice for us – in our two games against Woking!
He was effective in that position – at Kingfield he set up the only goal for Connor Jennings, and at The Racecourse he scored an early goal, but we lost 3-1 and two games later Vose had been sold!
Connor’s not the only Jennings to have scored against Woking. James has hit the target twice against them, including our 1-1 draw there earlier this season, making him our equal top scorer against The Cards, alongside his manager Dean Keates and Bishop.
Devonte Redmond makes his 50th career appearance tomorrow.
