Chapple Back In The Hot-Seat At Woking

Geoff Chapple returns as interim manager of Vanarama National League club Woking tomorrow as the Cards travel to Dagenham & Redbridge looking to end a run of nine games without a win.

Last Monday`s defeat at relegation rivals Torquay United proved to be Anthony Limbrick`s last as Woking boss and the pressure now passes to Chapple and assistant coach Jason Goodliffe as the pair look to address an alarming slide down the National League table.

The Cards have managed just two league wins since November, the last of which came in early February, and now sit just three points below Barrow AFC and Solihull Moors, who occupy the last of the four relegation places.

Both teams still have games in hand over the Cards and have better goal differences, meaning that for the first time this season, Woking are reliant on results elsewhere.

Torquay, who have picked up ten points in their last four games, also can`t be discounted from the equation as the survival race hots up. With just five games remaining the Cards know that they have to find a return to their early season form sooner rather than later.

Dagenham have had a tough season, with their seemingly comfortable spot in mid-table telling far from the whole story, with widely reported off the field issues and financial struggles marring much of the second-half of their campaign.

After a host of promising summer editions, the Daggers were tipped by many for promotion at the start of the season but have fallen away from the play-off race in recent months after losing several key players in January.

They currently sit in eleventh place with 58 points from 40 games, seven points adrift of the top seven, but still comfortably clear of the bottom four. After losing seven games out of nine at the start of the year their recent form has seen something of an improvement with wins over AFC Fylde and Maidstone United as well as a draw with Gateshead in their last three games.

They`ll be hoping to finish the season strongly before their long-term fate becomes clearer over the summer break.
