Woking vs Eastleigh
Vanarama National League
Friday 29th March 2024
15:00 Kick-Off

Woking will look to kick off the Easter weekend in style when they host Eastleigh at the Laithwaite on Good Friday.

The Cards never really looked troubled during their 0-0 draw at Southend at Roots Hall last Saturday, which gave them back-to-back clean sheets; Michael Doyle’s side have conceded just seven in their last eight games.

With that in mind, Doyle moved to bring in two attacking players, with Alan Judge and Lee Angol both getting minutes against the Shrimpers, however, Angol was forced off after taking a knock.

Opposition Watch
Three managers, one of the best attacks in the division, but one of the worst attacks too, look away from Eastleigh at your peril this season, because there’s always something happening. Seemingly coasting to safety after an impressive 2-0 win against Bromley in front of the TNT cameras in late February, just two points from five games has seen them looking over their shoulders once again.

Former Southampton goalkeeper Kelvin Davis was given the reins after Richard Hill was dismissed following a 3-0 defeat at Ebbsfleet last month that saw the Spitfires go eleven without a win in all competitions. 2024 has been disastrous so far for the club, as they’ve gone from a whisker away from the playoffs to joining the relegation battle.

However, in serial goalscorer Paul McCallum, they have the league’s top scorer. 30 goals from 33 games after joining from Dagenham in the summer would normally be enough to have your side competing at the top end. But only Oxford City have conceded more than Eastleigh’s 81 goals, including ten in their last four games, which has been the Spitfires’ Achilles heel, and they will have to fix up at the back or risk the very real threat of relegation.

Last Time Out
A breakaway goal from Dennon Lewis gave the Cards all the points at the Silverlake in a 1-0 win in October, which was also the scoreline in both fixtures last season, as both sides won their home games 1-0; Eastleigh in February 2023 thanks to Vincent Harper, and Woking in October 2022 thanks to Jahmari Clarke.

Of the 26 meetings between the sides, Woking have won nine, Eastleigh seven, and there have been ten draws.
