CARDS boss Garry Hill has urged his players to ‘keep the Woking flag flying’ ahead of two games against Wrexham in the space of three days.
Woking welcome Wrexham to Kingfield on Wednesday night in a rearranged league game (pushed back from Tuesday night due to the side’s cup commitments), but up first comes that trip across the Welsh border for that FA Cup First Round tie.
With Cards having already won on Welsh soil back in August, boss Garry Hill is confident that the tie presents a great chance for his side to take their place in the next round, and maybe beyond.
“It’s going to be tough but it’s a winnable tie. We will have to be at our best, we know that, but I’m sure Wrexham will be aware of that as well.
“Woking are now a team which have been up there and already beaten them this season (2-1) in the league and are a dangerous threat. We look forward to it.”
Hill’s wing man, summer signing Theo Lewis, who played in a second-round tie against Port Vale last year with former club Salisbury City, agrees with his boss that the cup run is all good exposure for the club: [the tie is being broadcast live on Welsh-speaking channel S4C].
Lewis said: “It’s good for the club, getting on TV again two weeks in a row (Woking’s next league game at FC Halifax Town a week on Sunday is being shown on BT Sport). It gets the club noticed more and we want to keep the run going.”
