After Tuesday’s late Nathan Blissett winner returned the Silkmen to the top of the National League table with a three-point cushion, a tough trip to relegation-threatened Woking awaits for John Askey’s side.
Askey’s side will go into the game full of belief after that dramatic winner against Gateshead but they do have a couple of injury concerns. Ryan Lloyd remains out with an achilles injury, and Elliott Durrell is a doubt after picking up a groin injury against the Heed. Callum Evans will be among those pushing for a place with three games in seven days.
Woking boss Anthony Limbrick may look to rotate his squad after their disappointing 3-0 loss to Leyton Orient over the weekend. Jordan Wynter and Anthony Cook who came on at half-time in that game will be pushing for a start.
Last time out
Earlier in the season the two teams met at the Moss Rose in the National League, with Woking returning to London with all three points. Goals from Jason Banton, Joe Ward and Inih Effiong overturned Elliott Durrell’s goal in the 18th minute.
One To Watch: Charlie Carter
With Woking at the wrong end of the National League table, topscorer Charlie Carter could prove vital if the Cards are to stay up. Scoring nine goals from midfield, the academy graduate will face further pressure after Inih Effiong’s departure to Ross County and Joe Ward moving to Peterborough United.
