Boreham Wood 0
KUDOS to any Woking fans who called this coupon-busting 0-0 draw between the Cards and Boreham Wood in the final game of 2015.
Kingfield has been a hive of activity this calendar year with a play-off push, takeover talk and goals galore keeping the crowds coming through the turnstiles.
This was the first goalless draw since January, but most of those on the terraces agreed with boss Garry Hill’s assessment that this Bank Holiday blank was an entertaining final 90 minutes of football before Auld Lang Syne is sung.
Rewind 365 days from this Boreham Wood fixture and Hill and his men were enduring a painful 2-1 loss to rivals Aldershot Town at a dispirited Kingfield.
But after earning a 1-0 win on Boxing Day against the Shots, Kingfield will surely be packed to the rafters as the Cards welcome their neighbours round to kick-off 2016 this Saturday.
After negotiating December unbeaten – to jump up to seventh in the National League standings – Hill says he is keen to hit the ground running, starting with the derby day showdown.
“I think we thoroughly deserved the 1-0 win over there [Aldershot]. I don’t know what game their manager was at: he said they should have drawn or won the game. He must have been on the whiskey before the match; I don’t know what game he saw!
“That was our day but they’re a good side, it’s a big derby and it’s another big attractive fixture for the fans.”
