A relived Garry Hill praised the input of Giuseppe Sole and captain Mark Ricketts after Woking’s 1-0 victory against Braintree Town.

Woking went into the game having lost attacking trio Jack Marriott, Scott Rendell and Charles Banya back to their parent clubs after successful loan spells.

Hill started with Sole up front and was impressed that the striker took his opportunity

‘The players who came in today did very well and I thought Gez Sole down the middle lead the line very well.’ Hill told BBC Surrey after the game.

The Cards’ boss did confirm he was on the verge of signing a player on Friday night but gave fringe players a chance after the deal fell through.

‘I had an opportunity last night [to sign a player] and it wasn’t right. I felt like I would have been rushing to do something for the sake of doing it.’

Woking won the game after Joe McNerney scored the game’s only goal from close range on the hour mark.

Hill also praised captain Mark Ricketts after he overcame an illness to play a crucial role.

‘At 12 today and even at 3 wasn’t fit to play, he wasn’t very well at all, showed what a leader he is at this football club.

I thought that was a great example for anyone who plays at Woking to see the leader ship of your skipper.’

The win moved Woking up to 17th and onto 8 points separate the Surrey side from the relegation zone. Woking’s next game sees them travel to Welling United who currently sit 14th in the table.
