As relegation six-pointers come, there won’t be many this season more important than when Woking host York City tomorrow afternoon.
With two games to go, Garry Hill’s Woking know a win would secure their place in the Vanarama National League for another year while the visitors are only above the drop on goal difference.
The Cards produced a miraculous comeback last Saturday at Chester where they trailed 2-1 after 82 minutes only to dramatically score twice with five to play.
They’re unbeaten in four games, winning three, and within touching distance of safety on 51 points. Meanwhile, the Minstermen suffered a 3-1 home defeat to manager Garry Mills’ old side Wrexham – a bad result at a bad time, having won four of their last five before that.
Hill has never been relegated in over 25 years as a manager and after that win at Chester he can’t wait for tomorrow’s game. He said: “We’ve dug deep over the last four games and there’s still a lot of work to, we know that. There will be a massive crowd for the York game, we’ve put ourselves in a much stronger position than where we were two weeks ago.
“I don’t usually say it and don’t really need to say it, I think the support at Woking has always been superb since we’ve been here. But I think all roads from York and all roads in the South will lead to Woking on Saturday for a great game on paper.
“We will go for the win and they will too. It’s setup to be a great game. We know there will be great travelling support from York.
“We need the numbers to turn out, the club have to do everything to promote it. There could well be four, five thousand there. It is such a great and important game.”
