FIXTURE DETAILS:

Barnet FC vs Woking FC 

Saturday 20th February, 15:00 

The Hive London 

Vanarama National League 

THE CARDS

League Position: 18th - 23 points (P20, W5, D6, L9)

Last result: Wrexham AFC 2-0 Woking FC - Tuesday 16th February

Manager: Alan Dowson

Club Captain: Josh Casey

Alan Dowson's side make the short trip to North London in a run of wretched form that has seen them go without a win in seven matches. That run stems back to December 12th where they picked up all three points on home soil against promotion hopefuls Hartlepool United. Whilst the Cards have been strong at The Laithwaite Community Stadium, their form on their travels has been anything but, with their last victory away from home coming against the bottom of the table Dover Athletic. Dowson's side fell to another away defeat on Tuesday night, as they lost out 2-0 to Wrexham in North Wales. The Cards will be targetting their trip to The Hive as a chance to return to form, meaning the Bees will have to be on their guard, in what is set to be an open affair. 

Woking were on fire when the Bees made the trip to Surrey, as they hammered Peter Beadle's side despite having ten men for over an hour of the match. That was a bleak afternoon, so Tim Flowers' men will be hoping to right some of those wrong on home turf. Despite things not going to plan at the moment, Dowson's side plays football in an effective way and have a squad filled with dangerous players, as they showed in the reverse fixture back in November. The Cards look to get on the front foot and will hope to try to take the game to the Bees, who will be buoyant from ending their poor run of form in midweek. 

The Bees: 

What a difference a win can make! The Bees finally returned to winning ways on Tuesday evening, as they put in a determined performance to grind out a 2-1 win over FC Halifax Town. First-half goals from Michael Petrasso and Anthony Wordsworth set the Bees on their way to a vital victory, now they have the task of picking up back-to-back victories for the first time in this campaign. Flowers' side has improved week by week, leading to that win on Tuesday night and the confidence will be high as they return to The Hive for the second time this week. There is added motivation for the Bees, in the fact that they can move to within three points of Kings Lynn Town, the team they'll next face after Saturday's meeting with the Cards. 

The work of Gary Anderson and the rest of the backroom team clearly came to the forefront on Tuesday night, in a performance where the Bees did not stop running throughout the 97 minutes. They'll have to dig into those energy reserves again if they are to get another positive result on home soil. With Michael Petrasso leading the way on seven goals so far this campaign, the Canadian international will be looking to continue his own fine individual form since he returned from injury last month. 

Team News:

Harry Taylor will miss the fixture with Woking after he picked up his 5th yellow card of the campaign in Tuesday night's win. Other than that, it appears there are no fresh injury concerns for the Bees heading into the match with Dowson's side.

Match Pack: Barnet 0-2 Woking

20 February 2021

The Bees were edged out 2-0 as Woking took home all three points.

HOW IT HAPPENED

The Bees were looking to make it back to back wins after Tuesday nights victory over Halifax Town, as they faced up against Woking.

Neither side started the game the better and it was quite an even contest as chances came few and far between, with the wind playing its part in disrupting the players from playing any free flowing football.

Setpieces looked to be the key that Woking were trying to use in order to unlock the Bees organised defence, but the home side were doing well to deal with any crosses that came in the box.

JJ Hooper got the first meaningful chance for the Bees about 20 minutes into the half when he switched the ball onto his left foot, just hitting wide of the post.

But it was the Cards who would strike first when Jamar Loza curled an effort into the right hand corner, about a minute after the Bees had cleared an effort off the line, with just over 15 minutes of the half to go.

Jerome Binnom-Williams who had been in some good from recently, was forced to go off the pitch after 37 minutes with an injury, being replaced by Alexander McQueen.

Woking were very hard to break down and every Bees attack was being met by a wall of the away side, even when Courtney-Baker Richardson was able to break quickly on the counter just before the break, the Cards were rapid in dealing with the potential threat.

There was certainly some intent in the Bees play, as the second half got back underway, as they looked to try and turn the tide of the game around.

Woking however were also upping the tempo in the game keeping Scott Loach on his toes, making a number of stops, including one incredible impact save with his left hand as the ball fizzed towards his goal. His defence were doing all they could to contain the added pressure on them.

Ephron-Mason Clark was introduced with just over 25 minutes of the game to play and tried to make an instant impact, but he snatched at his chance, putting it wide. This was just before Anthony Wordsworth had a chance which was gathered easily by Craig Ross in the Woking goal.

However, the Cards punished the Bees for not scoring by getting one of their own and doubling their lead when Moussa Diarra took advantage of a loose ball which had initially struck the post to bury the rebound.

The game became quite a cagey affair as it came to a close, with the ball spending a lot of time in the air and play being broken up by a number of stoppages from fouls and with that neither side were able to threaten much more, as Woking took all three points home.

Barnet Team: Loach, Dunne, Petrasso (Faal 73'), Hooper, Kefalas, McBurnie (Mason-Clark 62'), Baker-Richardson, Binnom-Williams (McQueen 37'), Judd, Daly, Wordsworth

Subs not used: Azaze and Duffus
