Woking 4-1 Torquay United

Woking bounced back to form with a 4-1 home win against bottom club Torquay, who slumped to a sixth straight defeat.

The Cards put two straight losses behind them to lead 2-1 at half-time through Joe Ward and Kane Ferdinand, with James Gray pulling one back for Torquay in first-half stoppage-time.

Charlie Carter and substitute Bobson Bawling added further goals in the second period for Woking, who registered their third home win of the season.

Torquay were undone in the 22nd minute when the ball broke to Ward 25 yards out and he lashed a shot into the bottom corner.

Ferdinand struck Woking's second 10 minutes later with a cool finish after being slipped in one-on-one with goalkeeper Dan Lavercombe by Jason Banton's neat pass.

Torquay reduced the deficit just before half-time through Gray's brilliant 25-yard strike, but Woking restored their two-goal advantage in the 53rd minute.

Ward picked out Carter, who raced in to the area to finish and the home side added a fourth through Bawling's superb curling effort after 67 minutes.
