Woking vs Oxford City
Vanarama National League
Tuesday 6th February 2024
Woking face bottom side Oxford City on Tuesday night, with both sides in desperate need of the points.
After defeat to Boreham Wood at the Laithwaite on Saturday, Michael Doyle will hope that his side can show resilience and register their first home league win since the end of August.
He will still be without Jim Kellermann and Rhys Browne after they both went off injured at Oldham, whilst Reece Grego-Cox went off on Saturday after coming off the bench, and will be a doubt.
Bottom side Oxford City have scored in all but one game since they last faced the Cards, but their main concern is their defence. No team has conceded more than the 59 let in by the Hoops in their 31 games, which has seen them win seven, draw six and lose 18 of their games.
A busy January saw Ross Jenkins’ side suffer somewhat of a player exodus with loanees Olly Sanderson and Jack Bycroft both being recalled. ‘Keeper Bycroft has been signed permanently by League Two side Swindon, whilst striker Sanderson has been loaned out to Sutton United, also in League Two.
Sanderson was a key player for the Hoops, his 9 goals for the club only bettered by Josh Parker’s 11 in 28. Parker scored twice on the weekend as Kidderminster came from 2-0 down to beat Oxford 3-2, ending a goal drought that had been ongoing since these two sides last met.
Last Time Out
A Padraig Amond double wasn’t enough for a point at Marsh Lane in November, as Oxford City ran out 3-2 winners thanks to goals from McEachran, Sanderson and Parker in a game filled with Woking errors. This would prove to be Darren Sarll’s last game in charge of the club.
Before then, Woking hadn’t lost to Oxford City, winning both league meetings against the club in the 2018/19 season.
