Woking 4-1 Tranmere Rovers

Goals from Dan Holman, Joe Quigley and John Goddard saw Woking comfortably beat Tranmere Rovers.

Holman opened the scoring when he nodded home Bruno Andrade's cross.

Tranmere goalkeeper Scott Davies only managed to parry a long-range Holman strike to Goddard, who doubled Woking's lead before half-time.

Matt Robinson set up Holman for his second, and Quigley made it 4-0 to Woking before Tranmere's James Norwood got a late consolation.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Woking boss Garry Hill after win over Tranmere

"We were flattered to be 1-0 in front because we could have been a couple down, although we weren't playing badly.

"John Goddard is in a rich vein of form with 11 league goals in 22 games from midfield - it's a tremendous achievement.

"It was a game really which was completely all over and we couldn't afford them to score. It's the first home win for six or seven weeks and we've owed plenty.

"We have a very young side and with those players they have to settle in. It's the first time this season I've named the same team. We owed that performance and that result to patient fans."
