Barnet can consider themselves fortunate for taking a point from this entertaining clash and boss Paul Fairclough was not afraid to admit it.

"That was a magnificent point for us and with Carlise drawing it was very good day for Barnet Football Club," he said.

"To come to places like Woking and get a draw is a good result for us and we are very pleased."

Only a last-gasp save from Barnet goalkeeper Scott Tynan earned his side a point when it seemed they would leave Kingfield with nothing.

In truth, with the wind in their favour, the Bees had bossed the first 35 minutes and might have had more goals to show for it.

In the end they only had Lee Roach's glancing header on 10 minutes to show for their efforts.

Giuliano Grazioli, Roach again and Ben Strevens all went close with Woking keeper Shwan Jalal making a superb save in particular from Grazioli.

The game opened up in the second half with Woking coming back strongly.

Neil Smith had already flashed a header narrowly wide when Woking equalised.

Gary MacDonald headed down an Ian Selley corner towards Luke Oliver who stooped to head home from close range off the underside of the bar.

With scores level play opened up which added to the excitement.

It was Woking who came close to snatching the win, Tynan saving well from Steve Ferguson after good work from Oliver and Richards.

Jefferson Louis headed wide form another Selley corner and it took Tynan's acrobatics to deny Woking the win which their second-half showing deserved.
