Walking in a Woking Wonderland

By: Rob Sedgwick

ANOTHER workmanlike performance from Grimsby secured a fourth consecutive win, this time against Woking at Kingfield. With the teams above Town all dropping points it was a near perfect weekend for Grimsby and the summit attempt looks a shade more likelier than it did a few games ago.

The two Grimsby strikers bagged one goal each. Ollie Palmer, who returned to the side in place of John-Lewis, scored the opener just before half-time, and Jon-Paul Pittman midway through the a second gave Town a two goal cushion. With Grimsby seemingly coasting Woking gave themselves a lifeline with ten minutes to go when Rendell set up Goddard for a home goal. Town though have had plenty of practice defending one goal leads, and they made no mistake to continue their fine form against Woking.

Town had most of the possession in the early part of the game, and Arnold should have put Grimsby 1-0 up when Pittman picked out his run into the box, and the Town winger was clear on goal. However he dragged his shot just wide to the relief of the mainly Woking fans behind the goal.

Woking had a similar chance when Odubade's flick put Goddard in a one of one with McKeown but his shot sailed high and wide over the posts.

Grimsby have scored just after half time a lot recently but this time Town found the target just before the interval. Disley struck a low shot which the Woking 'keeper seemed to see late. Cole managed to get a hand to it and push it on the post but Palmer was first to the ball and clipped it into the net.

Grimsby gave themselves a bit of breathing space when Magnay took a quick free kick to play in Mackreth. The Town winger ran on and pulled the ball back to Pittman, who flicked the ball with his head into the net.

The 500 Town fans, many wearing wigs, gathered along the side of the ground started to get in party mood but the celebrations were muted when the Cards pulled a goal back. Rendell headed a cross across the goal and Goddard side footed it in from close range.

Woking didn't seriously trouble Grimsby in the remainder of the match and Town hung on for a deserved win.
