Woking sit 12th in the National League on 31 points from 23 matches and go into tonight’s game off the back of a 2-0 win on Saturday, beating Wealdstone at home thanks to goals from Inih Effiong and Jamar Loza.

Their top scorer is Tahvon Campbell with 13 goals during this campaign.

The Cardinals were promoted to the National League after winning the National League South play-offs in the 2018/19 season. They have since had 10th and 20th placed finishes in the two seasons since. They are also three-time FA Trophy winners, winning the competition in 1994, 1995 and 1997.

The Opposition Manager

The Woking manager is Alan Dowson who was appointed on 16th May 2018, following the club’s relegation from the National League.
He has guided the Surrey based side to 12th place at this point of the National League season. 

Dowson guided his side to promotion from the National League South via the playoffs back in 2019.

The 51-year-old has previously managed Walton & Hersham, Kingstonian and Hampton & Richmond Borough. With the latter, he won the Ryman League title, securing promotion to the National League South in the 2015/16 campaign.

During his playing career, Dowson played as a defender. He featured for Millwall (where he came through the youth ranks), Fulham, Bradford City, Darlington, Slough Town, Gateshead and Walton & Hersham. 

The Previous Meeting

The last meeting between Bromley and Woking was a convincing win for the Ravens, winning 2-0 at The Laithwaite Community Stadium.

It took 78 minutes for the opening goal, which came through George Alexander as the 21-year-old forward scored his second of the campaign after some great play from James Alabi.

Eight minutes later, the win was secured as Jack Cawley scored his first goal for the club on his debut with an excellent finish from a Chris Bush corner.
