FC Halifax Town face a Woking side currently enjoying their best form of the season at the Shay tomorrow (Saturday, 3pm kick-off).

The Cards have won three of their last four games in all competitions after recording the same number of wins from their previous 18 matches.

Their latest victory saw them defeat Hereford 3-0 in the FA Trophy last Saturday, which was only their third win on their travels this season.

Manager Garry Hill led Woking to promotion from the Conference South in his first full season in 2012.

Only three sides have scored fewer goals than them on the road in the Skrill Premier, with joint-top scorers Scott Rendell and Gavin Williams notching five goals each.

Town, who are aiming to extend their unbeaten home league run to 12 games, have taken 29 points from a possible 33 at the Shay this season.

They are still without their top-scorer Lee Gregory, as well as Marc Roberts, Danny Lowe and Ryan Toulson.

Matt Pearson and Adam Smith could play a part tomorrow, while loanees Tom Anderson and Reece Gray may make their first league appearances for the Shaymen.

The record books don’t offer much hope for Woking, with the away side failing to find the net in four of their last five meetings.

Woking have yet to win at the Shay in their previous seven visits, and lost to an Anthony Griffith goal their last time here back in 2007.

A draw or a defeat could see Woking dragged into the relegation zone, but a win could lift them up to 18th.

Victory for Town could move then as high as 6th, but they may drop into the bottom half of the table if they fail to win.
