The Cards make the long trip to Cornwall this weekend in search of three more points to extend their lead at the top of the Blue Square South, with all their promotion rivals except Welling engaged in Cup action. Woking’s six-point lead on Monday night, gained by their 4-1 defeat of Weston-super-Mare, was reduced to three points by an emphatic 5-0 win for Sutton on Tuesday evening.
Truro recorded an even more eye-catching win the same evening, defeating Farnborough 8-2 – so Garry Hill’s side have been warned! For Steve Thompson the trip represents a return to a club he managed from December 2009 till March 2010.
Garry seems unlikely to make many changes to Monday’s line-up, although he has the option to recall either Alan Inns or Joe McNerney in central defence in order to allow Mark Ricketts to move back into midfield. Dale Binns was injured on Monday night and, if he is not fit, either Nathan Koranteng or Gez Sole could start. Wayne Gray hadn’t recovered sufficiently to make the substitutes’ bench that night but would be a very handy addition if he is now fit enough.
