Lions Sign Off With A Wimper As Woking Keep Slim Hopes Alive

Playing their last home game of what has been a frustrating season for all involved the Lions demonstrated exactly why they are going down with a lackluster performance the highlight of which was a superb finish by Dayle Southwell, which as it turned out was their one and only shot on target.

With chances at a premium Woking took the lead on 26 minutes through Charlie Carter who got in behind the home back four and finished with a shot wide of Joe Green.

The equalizer came just after the hour as the Lions got their first shot on target as a long clearance from Joe Green was chested down by Rowan Liburd into the path of Southwell who shot across Nathan Baxter into the far corner.

John Rooney put a speculative looping shot over the bar but the same old frailties surfaced when Woking were awarded a corner on the right with fifteen minutes to go which was headed home by the unmarked Richard Orlu to give the Cards a precious three points in their battle to avoid the drop.

As for the home side it was the same-old-same-old fare served up at the end of a season that promised much midstream but delivered relegation by the end it and sidelining key players in the process, a decision which on reflection had the most detrimental effect on team performances and morale.
