Woking 1-0 Chester

Kingfield Stadium

Woking made it five wins out of five to go second in the table as Giuseppe Sole's goal proved enough to sink Chester at Kingfield Stadium.

Struggling Chester frustrated the hosts for long periods, James Clarke going closest for Woking in the first-half.

Sole broke the deadlock with a composed finish past Jon Worsnop after being fed by Dean Morgan.

Chester have lost six out of nine league games and are 19th in the table, one point above the relegation zone.

Woking manager Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Hill on Woking v Chester

""It's been a very tough week and a tremendous return of points. It shows we're going in the right direction.

"We've played nine games this season and we've used four different goalkeepers so we've been very unlucky with that.

"Ross Warner knows the football club well and he did very well with what we did today.

"It was a big factor that when we were under pressure for certain periods, the keeper knew the players in front of him."
