Woking continue their pre-season programme on Tuesday evening with the visit of League One side Brentford. On the face of it, this will be an even stiffer test than Saturday’s game against AFC Wimbledon, with Brentford, a week nearer their first league outing, looking to put out a strong side in this game and their final friendly on Friday at home to Crystal Palace.


Graham Baker essentially played a different side in each half on Saturday – which probably exaggerated the difference in quality between the Cards and the Dons since neither Woking line-up was obviously Graham’s strongest hand. Amongst the triallists, winger Takumi Ake and striker Gomez Dali made the most impression but the Cards, missing Alan Inns and Joe McNerney, looked inexperienced in central defence and short of ‘bite’ in midfield too.

We will have to see if Graham uses Tuesday’s game in a similar way or begins to field something approaching his strongest XI for at least part of the match.


The Bees finished in 9th place in League One last season, 18 points off the play-off places. Summer arrivals brought in by Manager Andy Scott include: striker Kirk Hudson from Aldershot Town; left back Craig Woodman from Wycombe; right back Michael Spillane from Norwich City; centre back David McCracken from MK Dons; Richard Lee, goalkeeper from Watford; and striker Nicky Forster, returning to the club he played for from 1994-97. Some familiar names in the Brentford squad include strikers Carl Cort and Charlie MacDonald, and midfielder Sam Saunders, who was with Welling and Dagenham and Redbridge. Both Cort and MacDonald have been injured, however, and are unlikely to figure on Tuesday.

The results of the Bees’ pre-season games so far have been:

Brentford 0 Fulham 5
Tonbridge Angels 0 Brentford 0
Brentford 1 Wycombe Wanderers 1
Staines Town 3 Brentford 2

Brentford start their league campaign on 7 August with the long haul to Carlisle United.
