Woking 3-1 Lincoln City

Dean Morgan

Dean Morgan's double helped Woking maintain their unbeaten start to the season with victory over Lincoln City.

Morgan fired the hosts into the lead on 15 minutes with a low effort, Josh Payne doubling the advantage before the break with a superb free-kick.

Lincoln grabbed a lifeline when Jordan Burrow bundled in Sean Newton's corner.

But Morgan slotted in from a rebound on 73 minutes after Ben Tomlinson had his initial shot blocked to secure victory for the home side.

Gary Hill's Woking climb to third in the Conference, just three points behind leaders Barnet.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"When Dean Morgan got the third goal, that put the game to bed. They're all hard games at any level of football but, if you go the first seven league games undefeated, that's a great contribution.

"I'm very pleased with everyone connected to the club. It was a very good performance. We knew it was going to be a tough game because they're a big strong side.

"We took our chances well at important times. We've never had goals in the team. We have relied on one or two players, but there are a lot of goals in the team. There's a lot of quality in the squad now."
