Chesterfield vs Woking Match Analysis & Prediction
07/02/2023 10:45 pm
Promotion rivals Chesterfield and Woking will meet at the Technique Stadium on Tuesday, with a single point separating the teams in the National League table.
Boasting two games in hand, fourth-placed Chesterfield sit just below third-placed Woking, with both sides positioned comfortably inside the playoff places.
Chesterfield head into the contest off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Boreham Wood, losing each of their previous two National League matches without scoring a goal.
Following a 3-0 defeat to Barnet at the end of January, Paul Cook’s side will be earger to get back on track, having set the foundations for a promotion push.
Chesterfield enjoyed a run of one defeat in 11 league matches between October and January, picking up nine wins during that period, with two four-game winning streaks helping cement their spot in the top seven.
Having displayed their promotion credentials for much of the season, the Spireites will be confident of returning to winning ways on Tuesday, but they will not have it all their own way against Woking.
Woking have lost just seven of their 28 National League matches this season, posting 16 wins and five draws in the process, while they also boast one of the best defensive records in the division.
Only three teams have conceded fewer goals than Woking’s 27, while only two goalkeepers have kept more clean sheets than Craig Ross’ 10, highlighting the team’s defensive prowess.
Like their hosts, Woking enjoyed an impressive run between October and January, claiming 10 wins in 13 league matches, but they have also endured a difficult period recently, taking a single point from their past two games.
After drawing 1-1 with Torquay United, Woking lost 1-0 to Eastleigh last time out, so Darren Sarll will be seeking a big response from his players on Tuesday.
Chesterfield vs. Woking Head to head
In the five previous meetings between these two sides, they have each claimed two victories while drawing once. Chesterfield have scored 10 goals and conceded six in the process.
