Three wins from their three remaining National League games – against Bromley, Guiseley and Dover Athletic – is what is needed to keep Woking up, according to caretaker manager and club legend Geoff Chapple.
The experienced football man has been working alongside Jason Goodliffe to help the Cards avoid relegation after manager Anthony Limbrick parted company with the club last week. Woking have since secured a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday before slumping to a 2-1 defeat at Maidenhead United on Tuesday, having led the game with 81 minutes gone.
This weekend, Woking return to the Laithwaite Community Stadium for the first time since Limbrick’s exit and face a crucial game against tenth-place Bromley. The fixture marks Woking’s 1000th match in the fifth tier of English football and Chapple admits it is touch and go whether the club reach 1003.
“I think now we are probably in a situation where we have got to win our last three games and then hope results elsewhere go for it,” he said. “It’s going to be a big ask because it’s not often we have spun three wins together this season.
“We are where we are on merit which suggests that either are too young or too inexperienced, but to be honest we are probably both of those. But the players really are giving me everything.”
