Woking 0-3 Cambridge United

Cambridge United beat Woking to put Luton Town's promotion celebrations on hold at least until the weekend.

The U's can still mathematically close the 13-point gap on the Conference Premier leaders with five games left.

Luke Chadwick's clever dummy allowed Delano Sam-Yorke to put Cambridge in front, before Chadwick finished from a Richard Tait pass.

Woking mounted pressure but failed to work U's keeper Will Norris, and Liam Hughes's 20-yard strike sealed the win.

The U's need just two more points to guarantee their place in the play-offs.

Luton can cement their return to the Football League after a five-year exile if they beat Braintree on Saturday.
