WHO ARE THE SHOTS PLAYING?
Aldershot’s first league game since December 3rd comes at home to Woking. The first of a festive double header, the Shots will welcome Woking to the EBB on Boxing Day, looking to keep up a run of three games unbeaten, and three games without conceding.
Woking finished 15th in the league last season, picking up 53 points in 44 games. They have had a good start to this campaign, and are currently sat in 4th place after 22 games.
HOW DID WE GET ON AGAINST THEM LAST SEASON?
On Boxing Day last season, the game ended all square, with Woking rescuing a point with a late Max Kretzschmar penalty against 10 man Aldershot, after Corrie Andrews had opened the scoring from the spot in the 86th minute. It was more late drama at the Kingfield stadium, with a Max Kretschmar brace not enough to earn anything for Woking, as second half goals from Jayden John-Lloyd Harris, Corrie Andrews and a 95th minute winner from Mikael Ndjoli seeing the Shots win 3-2 Kingfield.
WHO IS THEIR GAFFER?
Darren Sarll, currently in charge of Woking, started his managerial career at Stevenage in 2016, but failed to find any consistency at the club. Sarll joined Yeovil in 2019, and departed for Woking in March of this year, remaining at the club and taking them from 15th to 4th at present.
ONE TO WATCH: JIM KELLERMANN
Former Shot Jim Kellermann is one to watch on Boxing Day at the EBB. Kellermann played in the playoffs in both 2016/17 and 2017/18, and could repeat that this season with Woking. Kellermann has played 19 of Woking’s 22 league games so far this season, and is very dominant in the midfield for Woking, a charactersitc which made him popular for Aldershot. Since leaving the Shots, Kellermann has played for St Mirren, AFC Fylde, Chesterfield, and now Woking.
PLAYED FOR BOTH:
Shots striker Inih Effiong joined from Woking last summer, having played 72 times for the club, scoring 23 goals and getting 10 assists before coming to the EBB last summer. New Woking addition from Chesterfield Jim Kellermann played 69 times for the Shots between 16/17 and 17/18, scoring 8 times during his time at Aldershot. Jermaine Anderson of Woking also played for the Shots, for one season in 20/21, making 31 National League appearances. Rhys Browne has already played and scored against Aldershot this season, but his impressive form earned him a move from Wealdstone to Woking after his brace at the EBB. Josh Casey, also now of Woking came through the academy at Aldershot, moving to Salisbury in 2010 before joining Woking in 2018.
