Gary Hill described Woking’s 2-1 defeat as “Frustrating” following an 89th minute winner for Bromley.

It was a positive start, as Fabio Saraiva got himself a goal early on, but Bromley came back with Blair Turgott before Lee Minshull crushed Woking’s hopes with a late equaliser on Tuesday.

“It is frustrating, I could see us drawing the game and I didn’t have a problem with a draw,” Gary Hill told Woking FC TV

Woking got off to a dream start at Hayles Lane, after just three minutes, Saraiva got himself on the score sheet with a great strike from 25 yards out, but Bromley took great fortune out of Woking’s defensive mishaps and got themselves back into the game as Blair Turgott slotted home, before Lee Minshull scored a free header from two yards out in the 89th minute to seal the three points.

Hill shared his initial thoughts on Woking’s lively start to the match, he said: “It was a good strike and a good goal. From taking the lead, and playing bright for fifteen minutes, I thought that should ignite us to turn around and push on.

“We seemed a little bit flat, a little lethargic at times, (Bromley) never really had too many shots, but we kept giving the ball away cheaply and we didn’t seem to have (the) drive and energy, which we’ve had recently in games.”

Hill explained that he didn’t have a problem with a draw at the time when the scores were level or where the team were heading during the match but described that he was concerned with his team defending at set pieces.

“We lost the ball cheaply in midfield and end up conceding a corner and (from) where I was, it looked a free header to me. It didn’t go straight in the net, it was a powerful header, but it looked a free header and that concerns and disappoints me more than anything.”

Hill admitted: “We’ve been conceding cheap goals from set-plays lately and that’s not good enough. Really I looked at (Bromley) tonight and I would have been happy with a point. I think we deserved a point, but you don’t deserve anything when you’re leaving players in the six-yard box with free headers.”

Despite the defeat at Hayes Lane, Woking still managed to climb up the National League table by one place into 19th by goal difference after, bottom of the table, Guiseley created headlines with a 6-1 victory over newly relegated York City.
