The Cards’ season was shaping up to be the most exciting in years, taking Peterborough United so close in the FA Cup was seen as the rocket fuel needed for a genuine push for the National League play-offs.
Instead, they are facing their biggest challenge since Anthony Limbrick took charge last summer.
The facts are that Woking have taken only seven points from the last 39 available to them. The problem with doing so well against the Posh in the FA Cup was that they lost their creative spark Joe Ward to their watching eyes.
Then at 5pm on Friday came the news that top scorer Inih Effiong has been sold to Ross County.
Now Limbrick has to turn it around and ahead of Saturday’s game at improving Solihull Moors, the boss wants their recovery to start in the Midlands.
“We are in a period where things just aren’t going for us,” said the manager.
“Against Tranmere Rovers we saw that. They had a bit more in both boxes and they had the confidence of a side winning matches.
“We aren’t doing an awful lot wrong, we just maybe need the ball to fall for us in certain areas and it hasn’t been.
“We are creating chances but we haven’t quite shown that clinical side as often as we should have. There’s enough quality there to move up the table.
“Saturday will be a different type of challenge and we need that win to come and when it does I think we will see everyone lifted by it.”
