Woking 1 Lincoln City 1
CARDS failed to build on Brett Johnson’s second-minute opener and were forced to share the spoils with Lincoln City.
Johnson got Woking off to a flying start, meeting ex-Imp John Nutter’s cross to head home.
But Cards didn’t have it all their own way and City got back on terms through Vadaine Oliver in the 25th minute.
A share of the points means Woking now only need two more to reach Garry Hill’s magic 50 target.
But they’ll have to wait until Wednesday’s game with Mansfield for another bite at the cherry.
Hill had no complaints about the result, he said: “It was a point won today. I thought we did enough to win it but when you look at the week, we’ve taken four points out of six against Forest Green and Lincoln City which is a good return.”
“It is disappointing not to have won but managers, players and supporters get greedy when you’ve been on a good run.”
Former Lincoln skipper Nutter revealed his frustration at full time.
He said: “They’re fighting for their lives but it wasn’t to be. They made it hard for us but once we got the ball down and started playing we looked the better side.”
“We’ve been on a decent run and we’ve had a draw today which isn’t something we’ve had much this season. Sometimes a point is good to pick up and we’ll see how many points we can now get.”
Bradley Bubb’s spectacular acrobatic was as close as Woking came to finding a winner but Paul Farman was a match with an equally good save.
Good news for the Cards came at the end of the week as Hill secured the services of Billy Knott for a further month from Sunderland.
It is hoped that he will be returning to the action soon following a hamstring injury.
WOKING: Brown, Newton, Cestor, Ricketts, McNerney, Parkinson, Bubb, Betsy, Johnson (McCallum 45mins), Stockley, Nutter.
