Woking 2-4 Notts County

Jimmy Knowles hit a hat-trick as Notts County boosted their promotion aspirations by coming from behind to win 4-2 at lowly Woking in the National League.

The on-loan Mansfield forward ended a goal drought stretching back to November in style by scoring three times in the space of 20 second-half minutes to keep fourth-placed County firmly in the play-off picture.

Woking had led 2-1 at the interval courtesy of Max Kretzschmar's penalty following Jordan Barnett's foul on Moussa Diarra and a close-range finish from Sam Ashford.

Magpies defender Mark Ellis, who claimed the winner against Wrexham on Good Friday, had earlier smashed the visitors into a 20th-minute lead at Kingfield Stadium.
