Jordan Pickford

Weekend loan preview

by Ashley Houghton

What does the weekend hold for loanees?

Billy Knott’s Woking will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to four as the Cardinals host Nuneaton on Saturday.

Knott, 20, started his first game since recovering from an injury last time out as Garry Hill’s side drew 1-1 with Braintree in the Conference Premier.

Nuneaton travel to the Kingfield Stadium lurking dangerously above the drop zone in 18th place, whilst Woking could make a dramatic late push for the play-offs, despite only being promoted from the Conference South last season.

Meanwhile, Jordan Pickford will be looking to continue his fine form as Alfreton travel to Braintree knowing a win will all but ensure their status in the Conference.

Pickford has yet to taste defeat in his five games at Alfreton with boss Nicky Law reserving special praise for the England U19 international.

Elsewhere, Johnny Maddison will be looking to make his debut for Crawley as they host Crewe Alexandra in League One.
