Name: Woking Football Club
Nicknames: The Cardinals
Stadium: The Laithwaite Community Stadium
Manager: Darren Sarll
Formed in 1887, Woking Football Club joined the West Surrey League in 1895/86. The club first came to national prominence as they went through five qualifying rounds in the FA Cup before falling to Bolton Wanderers in 1908. Woking also won the FA Amateur Cup in 1958 when they beat Ilford 3-0 at Wembley Stadium.
As the noughties loomed ever closer, the Cards found success specifically in the FA Trophy – winning the competition three times in four years. They were also runners-up twice in the Conference during that run.
Woking were relegated to the sixth tier in 2008 and 2018 but found their way back to the National League in relatively quick time – the second promotion came within a year of relegation.
One to watch
Padraig Amond knows how to score goals and that has shown from the start of his career with Shamrock Rovers – scoring 15 goals from 62 appearances. The striker played for a few different clubs around the Republic of Ireland and even Portugal. However, he moved to England after a successful loan spell with Accrington Stanley with the deal being made permanent. Amond spent time with various Football League and National League sides with his best stint coming with Grimsby Town, he bagged 37 goals in 55 games as the Mariners won promotion to League Two. Amond won another promotion with Exeter City last season, this time to League One. The 34-year-old made the move to Woking during the summer and has bagged seven goals this campaign.

Last Time We Met
The two sides met on the final day of last season at the Technique Stadium. While the Spireites were forced to settle for a goalless draw, they also confirmed their National League play-off spot with the point.
Paul Cook will have close to a full squad to select from against Woking – Danny Rowe and Manny Oyeleke will be the notable absentees.
From the dugout
Danny Webb said: “It’s massive for us to finish in that top three. We’re playing a team that are one above us.
“We know for a fact that if we win on Tuesday night, we go third. It isn’t looking at anyone else’s results.
“Woking will be coming here, and they’ll be playing the underdog card. We need to make sure that we get back on track.”
