WOKING snapped a run of three straight defeats to grab a surprise 1-0 win at in-form Eastleigh in the National League.

Dennon Lewis finished off a swift counter-attack to give the Cardinals a deserved lead on the stroke of half-time.

The hosts, who went into the game on a run of three wins from their last four, pushed for an equaliser but seldom looked like breaking through a resolute visiting defence.

Scott Quigley had two half-chances in eight minutes of added-on time but Woking survived to claim the points.

Speaking to Eastleigh's media team after the game, manager Richard Hill said: "We huffed and puffed a little bit.

"The disappointing thing is that we had a throw-in in their half with 30 seconds to go and we ended up conceding.

"That's not good game management. We didn't get going in the first half, we were kicking the ball a little bit too much rather than trying to play like we have been in the last few weeks. 

"We had to do something in the second half. We forced the ascendancy, but we should have been braver on the football.

"Getting beat is part of football. You have to take it on the chin and come back from it. It's disappointing after playing so well on Saturday.

"It's not our given right to play every game like we want it to be. We have to come here and train on Thursday, we can work on things and hopefully bounce back on Saturday."
