Garry Hill: Woking boss after win over Alfreton

"It's been a tiring week for us and we have had to play four games in eight days and we are working very hard as a part-time squad.

"We had no complaints being 1-0 down at half-time and we looked flat. I told them to finish the season on a high and dig deep.

"I felt we showed character and thoroughly deserved to win the game in the second half and to turn it around and beat a side after a difficult week it was a great result.

"Certainly you've got to have the energy and the desire from everybody and we had to dig very deep but I am very pleased for the players."
