Woking 2-3 Braintree Town

Braintree are level on points with 20th-placed Woking in the National League after a stunning 3-2 win at the Kingfield Stadium.

The visitors took the lead after only two minutes when Oliver Muldoon's powerful 25-yard free-kick was deflected in, leaving Brandon Hall helpless.

Woking then turned the game on its head with Joe Jones levelling proceedings from close range on 25 minutes before Fabio Saraiva gave them the lead from 27 yards five minutes later.

Gozie Ugwu thought he had added another for the Cards three minutes before the break, but for the linesman's flag.

Then Michael Cheek's header equalised for Braintree on 51 minutes before Simeon Akinola scored the winner for the visitors with nine minutes remaining, poking home from seven yards.
