MATCH PREVIEW-Woking v Eastleigh

On Saturday, Eastleigh take on 19th placed Woking in the Vanarama National League at the Laithwate Community Stadium.


Jake Howells (tight hamstring) and Ryan Cresswell (calf) are unlikely to be fit enough to be in the squad to face Woking. Scott Wilson, however, is definitely out due to an ongoing hamstring injury.As for Woking, on loan spitfire Connor Essam is unable to play due to an agreement made between the two clubs when he joined. The Cards will also be without defender Joey Jones after he got sent off during last weeks 3-1 defeat at Tranmere.


After losing their first three home games, Garry Hill’s side have racked up successive home wins over Chester, Torquay and Wrexham and put in some exhilarating performances in the process. It was disappointing that the side had no joy at Tranmere but Woking boss Garry Hill took a lot of positives from the display and will no doubt be expecting his side to have a real go at the Spitfires.


On the injury to Ryan Cresswell, Eastleigh manager Ronnie Morse said “It’s a shame if Cress has to come out, but Dugdale’s here to play. He came in at Bromley and we won 5-0.”

“You can’t risk calf and hamsting injuries. We’ve got two big home games to think of next week as well.”

On Woking, Moore said “They had a dodgy start, but they’ve had four good results out of five and I saw the DVD of them at Tranmere (a 3-1 defeat) and they were unlucky.”

“They’re a very attack-minded with lots of pace and youth. This’ll be as tough a game as we’ve had and we’ve got to be up and at them.”
