This league's depth is unquestionably cavernous, full of deceptive form and even more bewildering results.

Our midweek off gives Aldershot Town a rest from what has been a frantic and jolting ride through the bee's knees of the National League in the last month.

Forest Green, Lincoln, Macclesfield, Dag Red and Eastleigh have all taken maximum points from us, seeing us slide from play-off outsiders to mid-table glue.

The form table looks back at us with a cheeky grin, flipping the table upside down with Woking sitting pretty in 9th and our last eight games shrouding us in a layer of relegation form.

I mention Woking because it's a budding rivalry and one that has grown into an equal opportunities tie that jabs and punches with every Christmas period.

The two matches against them prop the end of December up and kick off January in style - and it will surely set a compass in stone of where this team is headed.

Despite their horrid start they've recovered well and just a smidge of envy has crept in now that the Cards have a striker finding the net with an alarming success rate.

Gozie Ugwu has netted seven goals in his last four appearances which has coincided with four straight league victories for our county border neighbours.

Of course, when we grabbed their striker Scott Rendell we didn't expect to be struggling for goals as we have done in November and a few goals can make a huge difference to the outlook of both sides.

While our goal drought should be ended on Saturday, and the Saturday after that too – we need to get six points from Woking this season.

They've finished above us in every season since our return to the non-League in 2013 and they did the double over us in the last campaign.

We've been bereft of huge ties because of the distance that the National League clubs are apart.

However, we all know what happens when a half-decent crowd, full of expectant, ready-to- turn-into- Aldershot-fans supporters turn up at the Rec.

December has been pre-hyped by manager, players and fans since the middle of November when things started to go pear-shaped and with 50% of the next four league matches against Woking – we need a spike in bragging rights, of superiority over 'them' to lift the whole team and, although I hate this term it is apt, kick on.

This is all a bit of a coo to stop the dreaming we all want to do about the F.A Trophy (and the 'W' word) since the First Round draw was made.

Maybe next week we'll exorcise the demons of Ebbsfleet United in the semi-finals of the competition in 2008 and get it off our chests in a darkened room and complete anonymity.
