WOKING 1 SALISBURY CITY 2

FA TROPHY FIRST ROUND

16 DECEMBER 2008

This was a depressing evening for Cards fans and a costly one for the Club. Not only did Woking fans see their team go tamely out of the FA Trophy at the first attempt, they also saw key defender Paul Lorraine given a straight red, presumably for use of the elbow. He will now miss three crucial league games, starting with the away game at fellow strugglers Lewes this Saturday.

Woking started with a front three of Marum, Domoraud and Denton. Marum came very close to opening the scoring in the 12th minute as he latched onto a ball over the top from Quamina, nodding the ball on before chipping the Whites? keeper, with the ball just going wide of the post.

But it was Salisbury, attacking strongly towards the end of the half, who took the lead, ex-Card Michael Fowler heading home decisively from a corner.

Woking equalised early on in the second half in a fine move involving Marum and Domoraud. The latter?s excellent whiipped cross was met by an equally fine header by Marum, placing the ball nicely beyond Bittner?s reach.

With an undistinguished game heading towards a replay, the Woking defence (by now lacking Paul Lorraine) seemed to switch off in injury time as a free-kick came low into the box, with Herring appearing from the Salisbury left to fire the winning goal.
