The form team of England?

Since the beginning of last month, one team have gone on a scintillating run of results and they now find themselves pushing for promotion.

This team is Woking.

In their last seven Blue Square South league games, they have collected all 21 points available and have scored 17 times. All this without conceding a single goal.

Before the run of remarkable results, the Cardinals were 14 points off the play-offs, yet now they only lie five points behind 5th placed Welling.

A lot of this is due to a managerial change in late January.

After losing in the play-off final last season, Woking had a topsy-turvy start to this campaign and manager Graham Baker left the club on the 19th of January and Garry Hill took over.

Hill lost his first game at top of the table Braintree but since then has not tasted defeat in the league (his team lost to Salisbury City in the FA Trophy).

Much of Woking’s success has come from ex-Leicester City striker Elvis Hammond.

Hammond has scored a dozen goals this season in all competitions after joining the club in October of this season.

The back four has also been influential to Woking’s recent success with the goalkeeper also being key.

Andy Little has kept clean sheets in every one of the games on the run and he will be looking to maintain this record as the club try to build promotion.

On Tuesday just passed, Woking put in perhaps their best performance of the season as they outplayed second in the table Ebbsfleet at Kingfield Stadium

The Fleet went into the game having only lost once away all season but the Surrey side were dominant from the start to win 3-0, all the goals coming in the first 31 minutes.

The Cardinals now go into the weekend where they face local rivals Farnborough, who themselves lie third in the league, looking to extend the unbeaten run to eight games.

There is still 13 games for Woking to play and, with Braintree looking dead certs for the title, Garry Hill will be looking to go one better than his predecessor and get Woking back into the highest tier of non-league football after a two year absence.
