Woking drop two points at struggling Ebbsfleet

WOKING were held to their first draw of the season after failing to capitalise on a dominant 45 minutes of football at Stonebridge Road.

It was a major disappointment for the Cards who had recovered from the early setback of falling behind to Joe Howe’s piledriver to lead at the break through Jack ­Parkinson and Brett ­Johnson strikes.

But that hard work was undone 15 minutes from time when Fleet snatched a share of the spoils through Phil Walsh’s headed effort from Ben ­Greenhalgh’s corner.

Boss Garry Hill admitted his players were guilty of switching off in a sub-par second-half.

He said: “We didn’t play at all after the break – it feels like a defeat and I’m very disappointed.

“We were cruising at half-time and against a very average side we were cruising.

“We could have wrapped the game up and if we had found a third goal the game would have been over.

“We gave the ball away far too cheaply, lacked discipline, invited pressure and as a result they grew in confidence as the game went on.

“Ten points from the last 12 is a good run and we haven’t been beaten but this feels like a loss.

“We should be beating teams like Ebbsfleet comfortably – this is two points dropped.”

And there was further woe for Hill who will be without Lee Sawyer after the midfield ace picked up his fifth booking of the season.

The manager raged: “It doesn’t help when you are working with such a small squad to see your players needlessly suspended.

“I’m a bit disappointed with Lee and I’ve told him how I feel about the booking. It gives the opposition a lift, gets their tails up and limits the influence Lee can have on the game.”
