Woking 1-1 Eastleigh

Jack Marriott scored deep into injury time as Woking took a point against fellow play-off hopefuls Eastleigh.

The game had few chances in the first half but, after the break, striker Craig McAllister gave the visitors the lead with a well-struck free-kick.

However, Marriott levelled late on with his own free-kick in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Both teams are on 44 points, Eastleigh staying ahead on goals scored because their goal difference is the same.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"Our performances have been poor over the last four or five games. We didn't turn up against Aldershot, which was very hard to accept as a manager. Hopefully, the players were hurting as much as I, Steve Thompson and the fans were after such a poor showing.

"There wasn't much between the two sides. Probably the last 20 minutes we played some of our best football but down here at Kingfield for a very long time. All credit to Jack Marriott and to the players. We deserved to get something out of it.

"As much as I can turn round and be disappointed with our recent performances, the team went out there and gave there all. We stopped the rot and got a result which was important."
