WOKING v BISHOP’S STORTFORD
3pm on Saturday 22 August 2009

Graham Baker will be very keen to grab all three points on Saturday to cement our decent start to the season. From what we’ve seen so far his side has the potential to mount a challenge for a play-off place. We’re certainly creating plenty of chances: perhaps Saturday will be the day when we start putting a few more of them in the net? Come down to Kingfield and cheer the team on!

WOKING

It will be interesting to see what combination Graham plays up front on Saturday. The partnership between Craig Watkins and Gez Sole looked promising but it meant pushing Moses Ademola out wide and leaving Luke Medley on the bench. And the side managed to register only one goal in spite of dominating both halves of the game.

Injury worries surround Harry Arter, Aswad Thomas and Ricky Anane. Harry has got a sore knee but should be OK, according to Graham when I talked to him earlier today. Aswad Thomas has a sore ankle and may need a fitness test tomorrow, whilst Ricky Anane has a groin injury and will almost certainly require a fitness test. Daniel Sintim is an obvious defensive replacement for either Anane or Thomas, with the highly promising Anson Cousins as another option if both are ruled out.

Definitely out of the reckoning is Billy Hussey, whose encouraging start to the season will be interrupted for four to six weeks following the dislocation of his knee in training yesterday.

BISHOP’S STORTFORD

The Blues finished in 9th place last season after a poor start and could be play-off contenders this time round. They had a couple of tough opening games against play-off favourites Newport County and Dover Athletic, doing well to take a point off the former at home in a 0-0 draw but lost 2-0 at the Crabble to Andy Hessenthaler’s heavily-backed side. The Blues then made hay at Weymouth, crushing the Terras’ young side 6-2, before drawing 2-2 at home to another fancied side, Staines.

Charlie Sheringham, son of Teddy, is one of the Blues’ strikers, having transferred from Welling in the summer, having netted 19 goals last season.
