Woking 3, Luton Town 1
BILLY had the Hatters tied in Knotts as magnificent Cards capitalised on Luton’s New Year’s Day hangover to avenge their Boxing Day blues.
With no trace of a celebratory hangover, Woking exploded into action and took the game to their promotion-chasing visitors at a relentless tempo.
Billy Knott produced a third-minute screamer to give Woking a surprise lead but Aaron Howe’s mistake allowed Andre Gray to equalise five minutes later.
Howe redeemed himself with a game-changing save and two goals in five minutes made it three wins from Cards’ last four matches.
Knott was the hero, stabbing home in the 73rd minute after Mark Tyler had palmed away Bradley Bubb’s low shot.
And super-sub Jayden Stockley eased the tension with a third five minutes later as Woking gained total revenge for their 3-1 defeat at Luton on Boxing Day.
Sunderland loanee Knott said: “I’ve seen the ups and the downs since I’ve been here and hopefully the club can move on.
“Everyone is together and they all want to play for each other. I’ll take that battle and that desire to win games from Woking because it means something to everyone here.
“When we got amongst them Luton didn’t really fancy it. They got a bit worried and it was a good performance from the lads
“It’s great getting games, the fans have been great with me and I just want to thank everyone.”
