Christian Jolley remains on the sidelines as Woking face their biggest test yet in National League South- a top-two home clash with Billericay Town on Saturday (Sept 1), report Surrey Live.

But the 30-year-old midfielder has no regrets about playing with an ankle injury for the first three matches of Cards’ season despite it meaning a longer spell on the sidelines. Jolley watched on as Woking made it six wins from seven on Monday with a gritty 2-1 win at Eastbourne Borough.

And he admitted he wasn’t right for the opener at East Thurrock having rolled his right ankle against Salford City in a pre-season friendly. He had already aggravated his left ankle last season while with Hampton & Richmond and says it is the first time he has suffered with injuries in his career.

“I’m not sure when I’ll be back, it’s a day-to-day thing,” said Jolley. “I’m working with the physio and we are taking it session by session and it’s a slower recovery than I thought.

“But I don’t regret playing when Dowse [Alan Dowson] asked me to. It was a new team and it was important that senior players were out there.”
