Forest Green's play-off hopes ended after an eventful draw with Woking.

Rovers took the lead when striker Sam Norwood slotted cooly into the corner.

Woking's Mark Ricketts then saw red for a tackle on Bradley Jordan, but the visitors equalised after the break through Brett Johnson's strike.

The hosts, who were also reduced to 10 men when Al Banguara received a second yellow, went behind to John Goddard's 90th-minute finish, but Lee Hughes snatched an equaliser in injury time.

Forest Green Rovers manager Adrian Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"I thought we were poor all game except for in the 90th minute when we showed some character.

"I wanted to get the ball down and get it out wide but we kept going down the middle. That was my half-time talk but they've got to think for themselves as well.

"Give Woking credit, particularly in the first half, I thought they were very good.

"Honestly, I just thought it was just a poor performance."
