Dartford 5-1 Woking

Dartford moved to within two points of safety with a convincing win against 10-man Woking.

Scott Rendell poked the visitors ahead early on, only for Alex Wall to level with an individual goal a minute later.

Joe Jones was sent off for a challenge on Jim Stevenson before Wall nodded home his second before the break.

Max Cornhill linked up with Wall to make it 3-1, then headed home a second of his own and sub Lee Noble added a fifth with a stoppage-time strike.

Post match: Dartford boss Tony Burman

"I'm really pleased with the three points and to get it by a number of goals is a bonus.

"It was very crucial getting the equaliser so soon after going one-nil down.

"The goal tally for us is not good, and I felt they dictated play in the first 15 minutes. After we made it 1-1, we had to nullify them a bit and to get the goal before half-time was a bonus.

"I don't want to see people sent off and sometimes it's difficult to play against 10 men, but tonight I thought we did get things right."

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Post-match: Woking manager Garry Hill

"We haven't got off to a good start and I am very disappointed in respect that when we go to work we have to allow enough time prepare properly, as an individual and collectively as a team,

"I wasn't happy before the game about certain things and I'm certainly not happy at the end of the game.

"We got a good start, but I think we were still getting wrapped up in the celebrations of the goal and before we knew it, it was one all.

"As far as I am concerned the lad stooped to get sent off and I have no complaints about that and you give yourselves a mountain to climb."
