Scott Rendell's equaliser saved Woking from suffering their second defeat in four days against Wrexham.

Wrexham won 3-0 against Woking in the FA Cup first round on Sunday, but found the going tougher in the Conference.

Andy Bishop, Woking's chief tormentor in Sunday's match, opened the scoring moments before half-time, heading in Mark Carrington's cross.

But Woking hit back soon after the restart when Chris Arthur picked out Rendell to nod into the net.

The draw was enough for Woking to rise into the play-off places, taking fifth on goal difference, while Wrexham are three points behind in 12th.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"The performance was an important factor for us this evening after a very disappointing performance and result in the FA Cup up at Wrexham.

"It was hard to accept the manner we performed on Sunday and let so many people down. I was looking for a reaction and we certainly got that.

"I thought we were positive - it was an open game but we had the better chances. We are probably a bit pleased in that we got a reaction and a good point but also a little frustrated we haven't won the game."

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told BBC Radio Wales:

"I felt we could have won it, I think their goal is a definite foul... it's a shove in the back when they've scored.

"Those things can go against you but I felt we stayed strong on our game, their goalie has brought off a fantastic save to keep Joe Clarke's effort out and Andy Bishop is inches away from turning it into the net.

"Equally they've had one or two half-chances as well, but to look at that after the terrific win we had at the weekend... it was a really strong performance from us. This is a difficult place to come."
