National League

Woking 2-1 Wrexham

Joe Jones claimed victory for Woking to jump above visitors Wrexham into 16th in the Conference Premier table.

Dragons goalkeeper Andy Coughlin came for a high ball but his poor punch fell to Jones lurking outside the area.

Scott Rendell had given Woking the lead after a swift counter-attack allowed Jack Marriott to pick out his team-mate with a lofted ball over Coughlin.

But Johnny Hunt equalised for Wrexham within two minutes after Dean Keates' whipped free-kick caused havoc.

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told BBC Radio Wales:

"I'm disappointed. I thought we were too open and not understanding of the elements, it was more difficult to defend that end - we needed to be nastier sooner.

"We've got to earn the right to play and early on we were hoping to ask questions and get in good areas.

"We showed a bit of attitude to come back into the game and give ourselves a chance, but we lost to two scruffy goals as far as I'm concerned."

Woking manager Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"It is a big three points for us.

"We got the second goal - whoever got it, it was going to be a very important goal - and we got it.

"We are starting to get consistency in the performances now and we're starting to win games. It's a nice habit.

"We've got eight to play now and we're going to keep pushing on and see where it takes us."
