Relegation-Threatened Trio All Win

There were only three matches in the Vanarama National League on Tuesday night, but all had significance at the bottom end of the table.

Woking needed a win at Kingfield against Solihull Moors to halt a run of two successive defeats that has seen them drop down to level on points with the fourth-bottom team.

 

And they got off to a great start with a goal inside 3 minutes when defender Terrell Thomas headed home a corner from close range.

 

Shepherd Murombedzi should have put the visitors back on level terms just before half-time, but he headed Omar Sterling`s cross straight into the gratefual arms of Woking `keeper Michael Poke.

 

Solihull went close against on 54 minutes when Sterling`s corner was met by George Carline but his effort was cleared off the line.

 

But the visitors did get the equaliser they had been threatening on the hour-mark when Murombedzi got on the end of a loose ball Sterling`s initial effort had been saved by Poke.

 

Shortly after Gozie Ugwu's effort had been saved by Nathan Baxter, the Cards made it 2-1 with 16 minutes remaining when Fabio Saraiva got on the end of Ugwu's cross to net his 11th goal of the season to date.

 

The win moves Woking up to nineteenth, a point and a place above Guiseley AFC, who also enjoyed a vital win at Nethermoor against a Sutton United outfit who could be forgiven for having their minds elsewhere, with their massive televised Emirates FA Cup tie against Arsenal on the horizon.

 

However, the Lions` victory leaves them just four points behind the U`s, who really need to concentrate on getting some points when their cup runs eventually ends.

 

Like Woking, Guiseley were boosted by an early goal, this one coming in the 7th minute when a Kevan Hurst corner was headed past Ross Worner by Jake Cassidy.

 

John Rooney was lively on his debut for the hosts following his surprise loan move from Wrexham, but it was the visitors who pulled level 8 minutes before half-time when experienced striker Matt Tubbs kept his cool to convert a penalty.

 

It looked as though a point apiece was on the cards until the 3rd minute of stoppage time at the end of the game when Rooney was on the spot to convert a cross from Marcus Williams from close range.

 

Eastleigh made it just one win in nine in all competitions after losing 2-0 at the Silverlake Stadium to a Braintree Town side, for whom this was a fourth league game without defeat to move into sixteenth in the table, seven clear of the drop zone.

 

It proved to be a good night for the Iron`s Michael Cheek (pictured).

 

He headed home the opening goal after 27 minutes.

 

And then doubled his and Braintree`s tally 17 minutes from time to complete an excellent win for the Essex outfit, who were denied a couple more by the Spitfires` experienced keeper Graham Stack.
