Woking 1 Wrexham 1

Wrexham fell further behind their rivals for promotion after another frustrating display at the Kingfield sports ground.

Matt Jansen made his debut for the dragons, Michael Proctor making way for the striker while Jon Brown made way for Wes Baynes. After just three minutes Ashley Westwood met a Baynes corner and forced a save from Knowles in the Woking goal.

Minutes later Fleming got himself on the end of a Williamson cross, but his effort was just wide. Wrexham got the breakthrough they deserved after ten minutes. Jansen was fouled and from the free kick Baynes' effort deflected off the wall and into the corner of the net.

Wrexham continued to press, and after nineteen minutes Jansen fired wide after some good build up play. After thirty three minutes Wrexham were denied a blatant penalty when Baynes was brought down in the area, incredibly the referee waved play on. Two minutes later Williams was called into action in the Wrexham goal, with Domoraud forcing the keeper into a save.

The Referee then denied Wrexham another penalty when Jansen was barged from behind, this time the referee penalised Jansen for shirt pulling!

In time added on Louis had an effort palmed away by Knowles, then Baynes had another effort which went over the crossbar.

Wrexham continued to press at the start of the second half. Some neat play between Louis and Jansen saw louis' long range effort not trouble Knowles.

But then Wrexham were caught out, a ball over the top of the Wrexham defence found Elvins in space who had time to pick his spot and level the scores.

Jansen was replaced by Spann just after the hour, but Woking were starting to get the better of the game. Rhodes tested Williams in the Wrexham goal, forcing the keeper to concede a corner.

Then Wrexham had a let off when Domoraud's shot was only palmed away by Williams to Elvins who scooped the ball over with the empty net gaping.

Wrexham brought on Anoruo for Flynn and he immediately brought a save out of Knowles. Anoruo almost got on the end of a through ball, but Knowles sprinted ten yards out of his area to clear.

Wrexham were throwing everything at Woking as they searched for a winner. The final action of the game saw another Baynes free kick held by Knowles under his crossbar.

As the referee blew for full time, Wrexham will look at the match as another two points lost. The Dragons now trail fifth placed Stevenage by eight points with only two games in hand, and their season looks to be ending prematurely after the early promise shown under Dean Saunders leadership.
