WOKING hit a vital treble against the Darts on Tuesday night to double their tally of home league wins for the season – giving patient fans a new marksman to check-out at the same time.
From the gravel of assistant boss Steve Thompson’s voice you could have been forgiven for thinking that he had spent Tuesday night watching the World Championship Darts in Frimley rather than operating in the technical area at Kingfield.
“I’ll settle for a bad voice for three points and three goals,” he admitted after this crucial 3-0 victory.
“It’s great to get a win because it’s been a while. Although I wouldn’t say we’ve been playing badly in the last six or seven games, things just haven’t gone for us and we’ve not scored enough goals. To get three goals is very pleasing but the three points is the main thing – I think it’s been coming.”
Thompson was also full of praise for new arrival, 19 year-old Jack Marriott, who hit the bulls-eye on his debut with a goal ) and an assist following his arrival from Ipswich on a month’s loan deal last week.
“It was a very tight game but in the second half we were very much on top.
“It looked like it could be another one of those nights but fortunately Jack popped up with a goal and we’ve gone on to get two more. Jack signed Friday and trained Saturday, he’s done what we asked of him and more – he’s been terrific.”
Marriott will be looking to keep his eye-in when the Cards host basement club Hyde on Saturday.
