Cards Denied Three Points by Late Ebbsfleet Rally

Cards Denied Three Points by Late Ebbsfleet Rally
Woking 2 Ebbsfleet United 2
Vanarama National League
14th September 2019

The sky was blue and the grass was green for the visit of Ebbsfleet, and the return of John Goddard, Gozie Ugwu, Jack King, Frankie Sutherland and last, but never least, Garry Hill.

The Woking team was unchanged from the starting line-up against Hartlepool, but with Max Kretzschmar back on the bench after his injury at the expense of Ibrahim Miete. Before the kick off there was a very well observed one-minute applause in memory of Charlie Mortimore who died this week.

After 13 minutes, Tarpey, who looked sharp all game, nutmegged the defender and got a fierce shot away that the keeper was just able to tip the ball over for a corner.

A couple of minutes later, Alex Reid, who was a threat throughout the game, attacked down the wing and hit a shot that flashed across the front of the Woking goal.

At this point, the game was end-to-end - there was no sustained possession by either side.

Woking won a free kick after good work between Tarpey and Hyde, but it was defended well. Poku then went in the book for a strong tackle on Goddard.

Weston of Ebbsfleet was booked on 25 minutes for a tackle. The resulting free kick came in from near the corner flag and nearly made its way into the net, but was parried by the keeper from Hyde. Tarpey then beat his man and got a low... [ Read More ]
