Cards seek three more points

Bromley v Woking
7.45pm on Tuesday 20 September 2011

The Cards travel to Bromley tomorrow (Tuesday) evening looking to pick up three more points after a good win over Dover Athletic on Saturday. With Welling and Dartford both also winning on Saturday, there is still little between the top sides at present in the BSBS league table.

WOKING

Garry Hill’s adroit use of his substitutes’ bench on Saturday seemed to turn the tide decisively in the Cards’ favour as Paris Cowan-Hall and Jay Davies netted in the last ten minutes after Davies, Gez Sole and Elvis Hammond had replaced Jack King, Dale Binns and Wayne Gray. Their introduction seemed to provide the fillip needed to exert that extra pressure on Dover which led to the breakthrough. It will be interesting to see if Garry continues to start with Wayne on Tuesday evening or whether Elvis will line up once more. Jay Davies and Gez Sole continue to press for a starting place too. Nathan Koranteng, another very useful player who hasn’t been able to force his way into the starting eleven, has now gone on a month’s loan to Boreham Wood.

In the absence of any news of an extension of Mike Cestor’s loan, I assume that Derek Duncan will come back into the side at left-back.

BROMLEY

The Whites lie 12th in the table with four wins, one draw and four defeats so far and with 15 goals scored and 16 conceded. At home they’ve beaten Boreham Wood 4-0, lost 1-0 to Maidenhead United, beaten Sutton 3-0 and drawn 2-2 against Salisbury City. They go into this game on the back of a disappointing 4-1 defeat at Staines Town at the weekend.

Bromley’s squad includes strikers Leon McKenzie and Danny Hockton, while the midfield was strengthened in the summer with the return from Reading of midfielder Harry Harding.

LAST SEASON

Bromley 2 Woking 2
9 November 2010

The Cards travelled to Bromley having just held Brighton and Hove Albion to a highly creditable 0-0 draw in the FA Cup at the Withdean Stadium. Graham Baker brought in Craig Faulconbridge and Dave Gilroy in place of the rested Elvis Hammond and Moses Ademola. In an open game Woking took the lead in fortuitous fashion midway through the first half when a hacked clearance hit his back and looped over the home keeper. But Warren McBean equalised with a superb back-post header ten minutes later. In the second half Bromley increasingly dominated and it was no surprise when John Scarborough stabbed home to give them the lead in the 61st minute. McBean and Tony Finn spurned chances to make the game safe for Bromley before, in injury time, substitute Hammond’s shot was blocked by a defender’s hand, with Gilroy converting the penalty.

This proved to be the last win in the Cards’ amazing unbeaten run, being followed by a 4-1 reverse at Eastleigh. With James Walker making his first start, Woking started brightly but were soon frustrated by a well-marshalled Bromley defence, whose high line often caught Elvis Hammond offside. The breakthrough eventually came in the second half from substitute Craig Dobson. Latching onto a through ball from Jay Davies, he outpaced the Bromley defence, sped into the box and fired home.

Come on, you Cards!

Moses’ brace puts Woking top

Blue Square Bet South
20th September 2011



Goals from Wayne Gray, Elvis Hammond and a brace from man of the match Moses Ademola secured Woking another three points at Hayes Lane and moved them to the top of the table. Welling’s defeat at Boreham Wood and the fact that Dartford’s win against Staines was only by the one goal means that the Cards returned to the number one spot on goal difference – a position they last held after the first game of the season.

Currently scoring goals for fun - the Cards have netted ten times in their last three games - they created plenty of chances and could easily have bagged a couple more against a Bromley defence that struggled at times to cope with the pace and trickery of the Woking attack.

Woking generally dominated from start to finish. However two moments of sloppy defending gifted Bromley both their goals and meant that the result was never really secure until Ademola’s second and the Cards’ third arrived ten minutes from the end.

Garry Hill was forced to make one change with Mike Cestor’s return to Leyton Orient after his loan spell had come to an end. Derek Duncan returned at left back but within five minutes of the start he found himself unfortunately at the centre of some poor Woking defending. His under hit back pass to Andy Little left the Cards’ keeper exposed and centre forward Hakeem Araba had the simple task of putting the ball into an empty net.

This was hardly the start the Cards’ wanted but, to be fair, they quickly put this set back behind them as they continued to press forward playing a slick and accurate passing game.

After a quarter of an hour they engineered a number of excellent chances. First Dale Binns accurate cross from the left was scrambled away only as far as Duncan. The left back looking to put right his error played in a beautiful curling cross into the six-yard box. A lunging Paris Cowan-Hall got a touch but it was straight at the Bromley keeper Santangelo. This was immediately followed by a Binns shot that Santangelo palmed away. From the resulting corner the ball was half cleared and headed back into the box by Jack King to Ademola who saw his close range effort expertly saved by Santangelo.

Woking were now in the ascendancy with several desperate Bromley tackles resulting in a series of corners. The equaliser was coming and after thirty-seven minutes it was Moses Ademola who, turning expertly in the box, created his chance out of nothing. His left foot shot beat Santangelo at the near post as he fired the ball across goal and into the far corner. It was no more than the Cards deserved.

Almost immediately Woking created yet another opportunity as Little’s quick throw out released Dale Binns. His pace took him away from the Bromley cover and down the left flank. A pass inside to Cowan-Hall gave the young striker the opportunity to play the ball dangerously in across the six yard box. This time Santangelo was able to gather and snuff out the attack.

The half ended with Woking continuing to press as they secured five corners in quick succession but were not able to convert any of them and take the lead.

Half-time: Bromley 1 Woking 1

With the start of the second half Woking were immediately on the attack playing at an even higher tempo than during the first period. Within a minute Wayne Gray almost benefitted from hesitation in the Bromley defence. His effort was cleared to King whose goal bound shot was also blocked.

Woking took a deserved lead three minutes after the restart. Jack King’s excellent, defence splitting pass through to Gray saw the striker beat the advancing Santangelo to the ball and he fired home from just outside the area.

Gray had a further opportunity after good work from Cowan-Hall. The striker used his strength to hold off his marker but his resulting shot was agonisingly just past the post. In the process Gray managed to pick up an injury and was immediately replaced by Elvis Hammond.

It was then the turn of Paris Cowan-Hall to get the ball into the net but his close range header was ruled offside. But immediately and very much against the run of play Bromley found an unexpected equaliser.

A long ball forward saw the Woking defence hesitate. Andy Little was out of his goal in an attempt to clear but realising he had no chance of getting to the bouncing ball before the advancing McKenzie, stopped. The Bromley forward had the relatively simple task of lobbing the ball over Little and into the empty net.

Woking continued to press forward as they looked to restore their lead. A magnificent run down the left took Binns to the bye line. His ball into Hammond was just behind the forward but turning he managed to get his shot away, but it was only just off target. Next Ademola almost managed to cash in as Santangelo dropped the ball at his feet but the keepers immediate challenge managed to avert the danger and his own embarrassment.

At the other end Bromley had a rare opportunity as a good shot from McKenzie flashed past Little’s post. But it was now the turn of Ademola to add to the score. Substitute Gez Sole produced a trademark run into the box and past a static Bromley defence. His shot was only half cleared and as Santangelo hesitated Ademola was on hand to score from close range.

Further chances fell to the Cards – Hammond dwelt on the ball when he had a good opportunity to shoot and another fine run from Sole saw his shot fly over the bar. And a fourth goal arrived courtesy of another close range effort from Hammond that was powered into the net after his initial effort had been blocked.

So Woking move to the top of the table as their free scoring and attractive football proves at times irresistible. A few defensive frailties remain but while the Cards score rather more than they concede they’ll continue to mount a strong challenge for promotion.
