Woking v St Albans City
Saturday, November 21 - 3pm KO
FA Trophy Third Qualifying Round
Where: Kingfield Stadium, Kingfield, Woking, Surrey. GU22 9AA (Tel: 01483 772470)
Who: Woking have one of the finest records in non-league's premier cup competition the FA Trophy winning the competition a record three times.
The Cards' three successes came in the space of four seasons during the mid-90s and they were also beaten finalists against Grays Athletic in 2005/06.
Season so far: The Cards have struggled at Kingfield this season winning only twice in the league in front of their own fans.
Despite struggling on home soil, Graham Baker's side have been in fantastic form on the road despite being held to a 0-0 draw by basement side Weymouth in their last fixture.
Woking have also enjoyed success in a cup competition this season, reaching the First Round of the FA Cup where they were edged out 1-0 by League One side Swindon Town.
Last meeting: Lamine Sagna's goal six minutes from time gave the Saints a fantastic victory when the two sides met at Kingfield in the league a little over a week ago. Debutant Sagna came off the bench to score inside 40 seconds and give City arguably their best win of the season so far.
Players: Adam Everitt and David Galbraith are City's main injury worries ahead of the trip to Kingfield. Everitt is concerned the groin injury he suffered in the 2-1 win over Weymouth is not healing as quickly as hoped while Galbraith is still struggling in his search for fitness.
New signings Danny Johnson and Lamine Sagna are pushing for starts after coming off the bench to score important goals in previous outings.
