Eastleigh 2-1 Woking

Will Evans struck in the 95th minute as Eastleigh came from behind to beat Woking and keep their play-off hopes alive.

Eastleigh's Paul Reid was sent off for an off-the-ball incident involving Mark Ricketts before Joe Jones' header gave the visitors the lead.

Jai Reason's fine finish levelled the scores after Woking's Keiran Murtagh was dismissed for a second caution.

Midfielder Evans secured the points after nodding home at the back post.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey: "When we were 1-0 up at half-time, I wasn't 100% sure whether it would be enough to see it through and it was very important to say to our young players to keep their discipline and I was comfortable at 1-0.

"When you have one of your more senior players go to ground to even it up it certainly made it tough for us. They got the equalising goal and to be honest they looked like the team who were going to win it."

"I don't have a complaint, I am just disappointed for the changing room. I'm not knocking the effort or the battling performance, but when you're on a low, it's tough for them to dig in."
