Woking 2-2 Welling United

Tashan Adeyinka's late goal earned struggling Welling a draw but did not prevent Woking from moving into the Conference Premier play-off places.

Ross Lafayette met Dominic Vose's cross to head Welling ahead on nine minutes.

But Scott Rendell's penalty, his 22nd goal this term, drew Woking level after Jake Gallagher fouled Yemi Odubade.

Odubade's low strike then made it 2-1 before Adeyinka scored with 13 minutes left, but the draw still leaves Welling six points from safety.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"We are fighting for our lives to get into the play-offs, and it was always going to be a tough game and they always are with the added pressure.

"I thought we started quite brightly and I was pleased with that but we didn't do any damage to them and of course we got punished.

"Overall, I've got no complaints in the first half as we hadn't done enough in the game. But come the second half we got the early break with a penalty, then suddenly we were in front .

"To be honest I wasn't comfortable in that position because it was that sort of game where they had nothing to lose and went for it.

"It was a fair result on the balance of play and, yes, it is a point gained but it's always hard when you want something so much in terms of getting the three points. Irrespective of other results today we've gained another point and the table doesn't lie."
