Woking 3-2 FC Halifax Town

Scott Rendell's late penalty and Yemi Odubade's last-minute winner earned 10-man Woking a dramatic three points over FC Halifax.

Scott McManus headed the visitors into the lead before Josh Payne equalised but Halifax were ahead after the break.

After Danny Hattersley was felled, Will Hatfield netted the spot-kick before he himself was brought down by Payne, who was sent off, but Hatfield missed.

Hatfield then conceded a penalty which Rendell scored before Odubade's winner.

Woking manager Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Hill on Woking v Halifax

"Being 2-1 down with 10 players - not only equalising but going on to win the game is a fitting end to a superb season.

"I think everybody has played their part in a magnificent season. To end up finishing seventh with 76 points, I can't ask any more. It's a season which has surpassed what the most genuine and loyal Woking fans could have dreamed.

"Of course I wanted to get into the play-offs and I wanted to win the league, but you have to look at the club's situation. We are part time and we've surpassed what I expected with our points tally."
