Woking vs Wealdstone
Vanarama National League
Saturday 24th February 2024
15:00 Kick-Off

Woking start a run of three consecutive home matches by facing Wealdstone at the Laithwaite on Saturday.

After defeat at Ebbsfleet, Michael Doyle will be looking for a reaction to stop the Cards from getting dragged further away from the safety mark.

There may be chances for players who have not started regularly with Woking looking to try and find form in any way possible, against a Stones side with a few familiar faces.

Opposition Watch
Stuart Maynard moved upwards to Notts County last month, taking his assistant and first team coaches Matt and Craig Saunders with him. The Stones wasted no time in poaching David Noble from National League South side St Albans City, but his transition to life at Grosvenor Vale has not been as smooth as he would have hoped.

Wealdstone’s much discussed pitch problems have left them lingering behind the rest of the league in terms of games played, with the Stones having four games in hand on the Cards and five in hand on various teams.

This has no doubt had an impact on recent form, with the Stones winless in four league games since Noble took over, but having beaten Hendon emphatically in the FA Trophy on Tuesday night, he will be hoping that this result can carry over into the league.

With top scorer Sean Adarkwa out injured, Wealdstone’s players to watch are former Woking trio Jack Cook, Max Kretzschmar and Tarryn Allarakhia. In particular, Allarakhia was called up and started once at AFCON last month following impressive form under Maynard.

Currently sitting on 38 points from 30 games, the Stones sit 19th, four points above the Cards having scored 42 and conceded 45.

Last Time Out
Sam Bowen’s first half goal was enough for all three points in September as the Stones were 1-0 victors at the Vale.

Last season, the sides shared the points on both occasions, with two Kretzschmar penalties across both games adding up to two 1-1 score lines.

Across 10 meetings between the sides, the Stones have won four, Woking have won four and there have been two draws.
