Tamworth 2-4 Woking

Woking beat Tamworth to deny Dale Belford's already-relegated side a win in their Conference Premier farewell.

Giuseppe Sole's header from 12 yards put Woking ahead and he then set up Scott Rendell who doubled the lead from close range.

Jessy Reindorf pulled a goal back with a drilled, right-footed strike but Rendell's header made it 3-1.

Tamworth's Reindorf stroked the ball home from six yards for 3-2 but Kevin Betsy's injury-time strike sealed it.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Post-match: Woking manager Hill

"It was important to get the three points in the last game of the season.

"It moves us up to ninth in the table in a very tough league, which is fantastic.

"Credit to the players, supporters and staff for all their work. Everybody has made a brilliant contribution.

"Where we are financially as a football club and the budget we work on at £300,000 is very low for a Conference team, but we know what we're working on to take this club to the next level."
