Grimsby Town 2-2 Woking

Three stoppage-time goals saw Grimsby and Woking share the points in a thrilling draw.

Kevin Betsy gave Woking an 84th-minute lead with a close-range finish before Oumare Tounkara struck back for the Mariners 30 seconds from time.

Keiran Murtagh restored Woking's lead but there was to be more late drama when John Nutter fouled Grimsby midfielder Craig Disley in the area.

Lenell John-Lewis levelled from the spot with the last kick of the game.

Woking manager Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Post-match: Woking manager Hill

"A very mixed night when you come to Grimsby with a very big budget, big quality players and a lot of depth in the squad - and I felt we were very bright and there wasn't much between the sides.

"We proved that we are force to play against anyone in this league and, as a part-time club, we are starting to go in the right direction and it didn't surprise me what happened at the end of the game.

"It was never a penalty in years and the referee got wrapped in it. No doubt about it, it cost us three points tonight. He knows that and their manager could not believe how lucky he was."
