Neill Byrne converted Tony Diagne's pass for 3-0 before Dennis scored his second from Whitehead's through-ball.

Dan Holman pulled one back for Woking before Dennis completed his hat-trick and Joey Jones netted a consolation.

Hill on Woking v Macclesfield

"It's a disappointing day and you can't make excuses, even though there are things behind the scenes on what goes around football clubs.

"We are where we are as a team and you don't turn around and look at the situation and make excuses and defend the game.

"As club, as a team and as a manager we are in for a hard winter and certain things have happened, like losing players over the course of the season."
