Scott Rendell scored his 14th goal of the season

Second-placed Woking beat Altrincham to close the gap on Conference leaders Barnet to seven points.

John Goddard's effort was tipped over by Altrincham keeper Stuart Coburn, before the visitors had a Tom Marshall effort ruled out for a foul on keeper Ross Worner.

Jack Marriott put Woking in front by getting the final touch to a Scott Rendell header.

And Rendell secured the points by finishing off Josh Payne's pass.

It ended a run of back-to-back wins for Altrincham, who remain 17th.
