Mike Cestor has scored two goals in 83 appearances for Woking

Mike Cestor scored for Woking as they fought back to claim a draw against runaway Conference leaders Barnet.

The Bees needed just two minutes to open the scoring as Luisma Villa Lopez turned home Elliot Johnson's cross from six yards.

The Cards were back on level terms in the second-half through Cestor's neat 12-yard finish.

Barnet striker Charlie MacDonald had a penalty appeal turned down late on as the game ended level.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Hill on Woking v Barnet

"It was going to be a tough test for us today against the league leaders. There wasn't much in the first half and we didn't test their goalie and they didn't ask anything of us.

"We had to dig deep because they are a full-time club with a lot of quality and I felt we got an extremely good equalising goal.

"When you turn round and draw at home against the league leaders, you come away and we're hanging around in that group where we want to be."
