Looking Ahead To Halifax Again

Dorking are set to travel to Halifax Town on Tuesday evening as they look to bounce back from the disappointing 2-3 defeat suffered at home to Bromley on Saturday afternoon.

Postponed initially due to the passing of Her Majesty The Queen, and then rescheduled again due to a waterlogged pitch at the very start of this month, hopefully the game at The Shay Stadium does get the go ahead at the third attempt on Tuesday night. Should the game be on, Wanderers will hope to get back into the winning habit after a run of five straight league games without victory, and turn their away fortunes around having not won on the road since the 0-1 defeat of Barnet back in mid-September. Recent form has seen Wanderers slip down to 16th, currently 6 points off the relegation places.

The timing of the rescheduled fixture has meant that Wanderers Surrey Senior Cup First Round tie away to Colliers Wood United, originally set to take place on Wednesday night, will now be moved, with date and time to be confirmed in due course.

Team News After the weekend exploits Marc White has confirmed that Josh Taylor and Seb Bowerman are doubtful heading into Tuesday's game, whilst Jasper Pattenden will have to pass the necessary protocols to be cleared to play after suffering a nasty head clash very early into his Wanderers debut on Saturday. Captain Barry Fuller is set to be back in contention after missing out completely against Bromley, and Jordan Cheadle (hamstring) and Adam Mekki (back injury) will remain sidelined.

Opposition Focus: The Shaymen

Wanderers travel to a Halifax Town side on the rise after a run of one defeat in their last eight games. After a difficult start to the season where the club collected just one point from their opening five, The Shayman got their first win on the board on the August Bank Holiday Monday with a 0-2 victory on the road at Scunthorpe United. Recent good form has shifted Chris Millington's side well away from the bottom end of the table, now residing in 14th, with the only defeat in the last eight coming at the hands of promotion favourites Wrexham. Four wins in the last six have included a 0-1 away win at Solihull Moors, and home defeats of Dagenham & Redbridge, Oldham Athletic and this past Saturday against Boreham Wood where a Rob Harker goal just before the hour was enough to secure maximum points.

Emmanuel Dieseruvwe is the club's top scorer so far on 7 goals, the striker having arrived from Tranmere Rovers in the summer after enjoying a few seasons of success with Salford City, including being part of the side that won the National League Prem play-offs back in 2019. Dieseruvwe is supported well in attack by the well travelled Jordan Slew and youngster Robert Harker, previously on the books at Burnley. The Shaymen boast vast EFL experience in their ranks with midfielders Luke Summerfield and Tom Clarke, whilst at the back centre half Jesse Debrah and left back Jack Senior have been consistent in their performances for the side in recent weeks. Manager Chris Millington took charge of The Shaymen in the summer after the departure of Pete Wild to League Two Barrow. Millington had been assistant to Wild in the recent years at the club and at Oldham Athletic prior to that. He'll be hoping to steer Halifax back up the table, the club having finished in the play-off places twice in the last three seasons, defeated on both occasions at the eliminator stages to Boreham Wood and Chesterfield respectively. These have been the highest finishes for the club since promotion back up from the National League North in 2017. Weekend Recap: Wins For The Ladies & The B Team After getting back on track in the league with an emphatic 6-2 win over Sport London E Benfica last weekend, attention for the Wanderers Ladies turned back to the defence of their Capital Cup on Sunday afternoon as they travelled to Reigate in the 2nd round. Lou Cooper's side very much picked up where they left off in front of goal last time out, going on to win 0-7 at Wallfield Playing Fields. Charlotte Crook opened the scoring inside ten minutes, before Katie Butts and Bianca Underhill added a goal each before the interval. Gemma Shepherd, Xayla and a brace from Amber Hendra rounded out the score in the second half, booking the Ladies place in the third round, with opponent and date of fixture to be confirmed shortly. An away game against Brentford is next up for the Ladies, a 2pm kick off at Bedfont Sports FC this Sunday. Ruben Gaspar's B team made it 4 straight league wins on Saturday afternoon, defeating Montpelier Villa at Culver Road 1-2. Tyrese Johnson and Ben Aubrey put Wanderers 2 goals to the good before the hosts halved the defecit through the course of the second half, the win moving the B team up to 2nd now in the Southern Combination Division 1 table, 5 points behind leaders Epsom & Ewell but having played 2 games more. Another away day follows for the B team as they travel to face Forest Row next Saturday in a 3pm kick off. Academy players Hayden Gale, Cade Casselman and Jack Saunders all featured in the B team win on Saturday and will be back in action for the Academy 'A' team on Wednesday afternoon. Jordan Clark's side face a local derby as Woking make the short trip over to Meadowbank in a 2pm kick off in the National League Academy South division.
