Gaffer Delighted With Woking Win

7 March 2015

Town boss Paul Hurst was naturally delighted after seeing his side win at high-flying Woking this afternoon.

He said: “The lads are buzzing in there and rightly so. It was a good away performance without us reaching our best.

"It was a good away performance without us reaching our best standards, but I felt we were in control of the game.

"Yes, when they got the goal, as always, you feel a little bit on edge, but it would have been a travesty if we hadn't taken three points.

"When it's 2-1 and you're down to the closing stages, Woking are going to throw men forward and their shape becomes a bit irrelevant, but we dealt with it well."

And the Town boss explained Lenell John Lewis' absence today.

"His partner gave birth this week and it's not an easy situation with where all their family members are.

"Physically, he wouldn't have been in the best of shape to take part even if he was available on Saturday.

"It was a bit of a blow to lose him and we did have to change shape a little bit late on when Ollie and JP were struggling, but Ross came on and helped us to see out the closing stages as a sole striker."

"We're going to have to check on Ollie Palmer's hamstring. It wasn't absolutely 100 per cent going into the game, but with Lenny's absence, it was about trying to get him through it.

"Jon-Paul Pittman was tightening up a bit and was messing about with tape and wrap and whatever else he puts around his body, but I think he'll be okay.

"It's only really Ollie to check on."
