Last-gasp goal denies Cards the win

A LATE stoppage-time goal from Billy Knott held Woking to a 1-1 draw away to Concord Rangers on Saturday.

Greg Luer gave the Cards a 29th minute lead after neat work from Max Kretzschmar, but just as it looked as if Woking were heading for their eighth win in nine games, Knott gave Rangers a share of the spoils at the death.

Alan Dowson’s men started in the ascendency, with Luer testing the former Cards’ goalkeeper Sam Beasant in the fourth-minute.

The Cards’ pressure told just shy of the half-hour mark, when an in-swinging right-footed cross found Kretzschmer, who selflessly headed back across goal into the path of Luer to smash the ball home into an empty net.

But when striker Duane Ofori-Acheampong was sent off in the second half, reducing Woking to 10 men, Concord took advantage of the extra-man and grew back into the game, and the pressure finally told with Knott netting an equaliser for the home side with 90 seconds remaining.
