Danny Jackman With the club in turmoil after the resignation of chairman Mark Serrell on Saturday evening we'll be welcoming Woking at Aggborough tomorrow evening.

Following that utterly dismal showing at home to part time, not match fit, hardly played all season Braintree Town where we somehow managed to come back from two goals down to deny them a deserved three points Serrell later on in the evening left the club, along with his fellow director Ruth Serrell, blaming the fans for his departure.  Yes, things were getting to the point of genuinely concerned fans reaching breaking point but no one yet has been able to pinpoint where these so called 'death threats' against the departing duo have been posted.

Maybe if Serrell had come clean about the events surrounding the original dismissal of Steve Burr, and then the mind boggling appointment of Andy Thorn, then the departure of himself may never have been on the agenda but instead that of Thorn would have been the main discussion tonight and the re-galvanising of the team in preparation for winning tomorrow.

We'll still be without Lee Vaughan and Michael Gash with one out on a two match suspension and the other out with a hamstring injury that could last for another two weeks yet.  Danny Jackman (right) covered for Lee against Braintree and coped well enough seeing as he's left footed and found a few problems controlling long passes with his wrong foot.  We just have to hope that Woking don't capitalise on that and expose the shortcomings.

Freddie Ladapo replaced Gash and looked like a fish out of water until he was replaced by the man that scored those two face saving goals, Amari Morgan-Smith.  Nothing against Ladapo but he's been bought in as a top quality striker by a manager that doesn't know his arse from his elbow seeing as he played him too deeply behind little Anthony Malbon who was expected to play up front by himself with two giants breathing down his neck for ninety minutes.

Hopefully Thorn will play AMS from the start against Woking, and also play him alongside Malbon, so we can hopefully look a bit more like an attacking force and not the mistake prone, defensive calamity waiting to happen that we have been forced to endure lately.

Woking arrive here on the back of an inconsistent run during February that consists of a win at home to Hereford and then followed up with defeat against Salisbury, a win away from home against Gateshead and then the ultimate in embarrassment for them - a 5-1 thrashing at Dartford.  They got back to winning ways against Macclesfield on Saturday after going down 2-1 but then finally winning 3-2 with a Scott Rendell goal.  Rendell scored the only goal of the game in our corresponding fixture back in December.

They'll be without right sided full back Joe Jones after he was sent off at Dartford to earn himself a three game ban.

This is probably going to be another frustrating game for the fans to watch with no one seemingly knowing what it is they're supposed to be doing and a manager with the tactical nous of a mole.  I'm going for another 'coming from behind to score in the dying minutes' draw.
