Woking meet Welling at Kingfield Stadium for a place in the National League next season.

The Cardinals come into the game having seen off Wealdstone in the semi-finals with a 3-2 win and are looking to return to the National League at the first time of asking after narrowly being relegated last season by a point.

After coming 2nd in the league and being the home side they will be the favourites for this one and will have two danger men to trouble the Welling defence in Max Kretzschmar and Jake Hyde, with the former netting 14 times in the league this season.

Welling come into this game after easing past Hampton & Richmond in the first elimination round with a 4-0 victory before seeing off Chelmsford City 3-2 in the semi-finals in dramatic fashion with a 96th minute penalty to set up this tie.

The Wings come into this having failed to beat Woking in three attempts this season, losing two and drawing the other, but did finish just one place and two points below their opponents so it could be a tight game at Kingfield.

Top scorer Adam Coombes left the club in January to join Billericay, however Brendan Kiernan has netted 14 times in the league for the away side with Bradley Goldberg having 12 to his name, and the pair will certainly be the danger men for Welling
