Hereford United 0-2 Woking

Financially-troubled Hereford suffered a fourth consecutive defeat as they were beaten by in-form Woking.

Scott Rendell fired in his 15th goal of the season after 20 minutes, taking the ball past Bulls keeper Daniel Lloyd-Weston and tapping into an empty net.

Adam Newton then opened his Woking account on what was his 127th appearance, receiving Kevin Betsy's cross and lashing in from close range.

The Cards have won their last six but the home side are now 13 without a win.

The Bulls, who remain above the relegation zone despite the defeat, face a winding-up petition and raised over £1,000 from bucket collections prior to the game.

Woking manager Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"I am afraid to say Hereford are not having the best of times on and off the pitch, which is sad for any club.

"It's about us at the moment and we totally dominated in the first half and, not being rude it, could've been six or seven.

"If someone had said to me at three o'clock that we would've won at Hereford we would've taken it, so to get a clean sheet and another three points keeps the run going.

"We have started to turn it around defensively and we are a lot more solid and disciplined about how we play."
