Gulls galore as Woking are held at home by Torquay

FRUSTRATED Woking had to settle for a just point against Torquay United as the sides played out another Tuesday night thriller.

A bumper midweek crowd at Kingfield were treated to sublime skills and great goals from both sets of players – the Cards taking the lead inside two minutes via a superb Kadell Daniel strike from range.

Just 30 seconds into the second period an equally emphatic drive from Gulls’ Courtney Richards pegged the hosts back – but that was not where the talking points ended.

Two late penalty calls – one given, one not – saw the officials take centre stage. With 20 minutes to go Woking’s Bruno Andrade appeared to be upended by United’s Durrell Berry.

But having waved away home shouts for a spot kick, moments later referee Richard Martin was blowing up when Cards keeper Jake Cole collided with Tyrone Marsh – who dusted himself down to convert from 12 yards.

Woking wouldn’t lie down though, and with just five minutes left on the watch striker Dan Holman swiveled and hit an unerring leveller to snatch a late point.

Wrexham visit Kingfield this Saturday with Woking searching for a first home win in a month. Like the Cards, after a strong start to the season the Welsh side suffered a September slump in form which has seen them slide out of the play-off picture in October.

Meanwhile, next week sees fans’ FA Cup dreams begin; Monday’s Fourth Qualifying Round draw handing Cards an away trip to Conference South side Maidenhead United.

WOKING: Cole, Caprice, Arthur, Saah, Thomas, Ricketts (Sole, 80mins), Jones, Murtagh, Goddard (Andrade, 56mins), Daniel (MOTM), Holman.
